2000 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante
Bid online during our live auction or at The Saleroom.
Beautifully presented in a great colour combination...The Aston Martin DB7 was the car that undoubtedly turned around the fortunes of a struggling Aston Martin, remaining in production from September 1994 until December 2004 and turning out to be the best-selling Aston ever. Styled by Ian Callum and influenced by Keith Helfet, the prototype was completed by November 1992 and debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1993. The six-cylinder DB7 was available as a Coupé or a Convertible and was positioned as an 'entry-level' model below the hand-built V8 Virage introduced a few years earlier. Over 7,000 were sold before it was replaced by the DB9, securing the future for Aston.
In 1999, the more powerful DB7 V12 Vantage was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show. Its 5.9 litre, 48-valve, V12 engine produced 420 brake horse power fed through either a TREMEC T-56 six-speed manual or a ZF 5HP30 five-speed automatic gearbox. Aston Martin claimed it had a top speed of either 186 mph with the manual gearbox or 165 mph with the automatic gearbox, and would accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds.
This, incredibly well cared for DB7 Vantage Convertible, has covered a mere 35,000 miles and has been owned by our lady vendor since 2003. The Mendip Blue coachwork beautifully compliments the Parchment leather, piped in navy. Starting on the button, the V12 roars into life and the throaty exhaust sounds a touch more purposeful than the somewhat underwhelming 3.2-litre engine it replaced in the earlier models. The service history is impeccable and the MoT is valid until July 2016.
