ASTON MARTIN DB7 GTA 2003
A superb opportunity to acquire this rare and beautifully prepared DB7 GTA, one of 112 ever built, 60 of which were sold in the UK.
Marketed by Aston Martin “for those who seek the thrill of a DB7 GT in the open road, but require the convenience and effortless relaxation of touchtronic automatic transmission around town, DB7 GTA provides the perfect solution”.
The DB7 GTA enjoys the uprated chassis, suspension, braking system, distinctive styling features and interior appointment of the DB7 GT and is thus rightly considered the ultimate automatic DB7.
DB7 GTA’s benefit from significantly improved braking performance over the standard DB7 Vantage due to larger and grooved brake discs, higher performance pads, improved brake cooling and an uprated booster system taken from the V12 Vanquish. This enhanced braking compliments the car’s sharper handling, achieved via uprated dampers, a revised front sub-frame along and firmer bushes, stiffening the suspension by 20%.
The GTA’s aerodynamics also benefit from the adoption of additional sweeps for the under tray, wheel arch liner extensions and a revised boot lid spoiler (reducing lift by 50%) and emphasised the new, sportier look. The car also features twin bonnet vents similar to those on the V12 Vanquish for better air-flow management and to help dissipate heat. Additionally, a distinctive wire mesh radiator grille and a lower air intake are fitted.
Inside, the GTA has sports seats, with extended shoulders and lateral bolsters as standard, special parchment & black instrument dials and a clock. The climate control knobs, gear knob, drilled alloy pedal pads and special sill plates are all in satin finish aluminium.
This particular example was first released from manufacture 20th June 2003 and was registered in the UK on the 11th the following month by Harwoods Aston Martin. Finished in Stornoway silver metallic with split line Charcoal and light grey leather interior, Charcoal carpets, Smoke Alcantara headlining and Carbon fibre veneers.
An immaculate rare, low mileage and low owner vehicle which is exciting to drive and in a desirable classic Aston Martin colour combination. Furthermore, Chiltern Aston have known this vehicle for a number of years having sold it to the current and former owner.
