Glistening in Stronsay Sliver, this Vantage cuts a graceful figure whilst on the move or at the curb. The deeply layered paintwork, a very bright sharp metallic silver presents in excellent condition all round, with no major marks to note other than some scuffs to the bottom leading edge of the front bumper and a small stone chip on the leading edge of the bonnet. Rubbers, trims and surrounds all show well with no excessive wear or deterioration given the age, the only imperfection some delamination in the lower large fog lights in the front bumper.
In typical Aston Martin fashion there is a considered balance of the very best traditional material married to a fresh and elegant design. The deeply bolstered seats wrap around both driver and passenger wonderfully well and show minimal signs of wear.
The dashboard and many of the smaller interior pieces are trimmed with wood which give this 20 year old design a classic and sophisticated edge. The door cards are beautifully designed with the same two tone leather and wood construction.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The DB7 will always hold historic importance as the first ever production Aston Martin to be fitted with a V12. Producing 420bhp it can manage 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds, which is hugely impressive even by modern standards.
Although the power is impressive, its the sound of the 6 litre V12 that really sets the DB7 apart. Right through the rev range it produces a howl with depths that modern turbo charged engines could only dream of.
The manual gearbox is a great pairing to the mighty V12, with smooth changes and power on demand perfectly tuned as a grand tourer.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The model specific 18 inch wheels present unmarked wrapped in premium rubber with a good amount of tread left across their surface.
The Brakes have been upgraded to GT specification items and as such are more than a match for the V12’s performance, demonstrating good feel on test with plenty of disc / pad material remaining.
This DB7 was first delivered on the 14th June 2002 and received its running in service just one month later, as detailed in the service book.
There is regular servicing throughout its life by both Aston Martin main dealers and specialist workshops as detailed with service stamps and invoicing. Since 2013 in the hands of the last 2 owners the car has seen over £20k spent in ensuring it is in fine mechanical order. Its last service in March 2019 at 42,253 miles by Aston Service London.
The history file contains the service book, original owners guide and service invoices that detail a huge amount of expenditure over the last 7 years.
The car has had 5 keepers in total, the current owner since 2014. Sadly in the hands of its 2nd owner during 2004 the car was subject to an insurance claim and as such now carries a Cat D marker.
