The Aston Martin DB7 Vantage was the first car to be fitted with the all new V12 engine, the first time a V12 had been fitted into a production Aston Martin. Transforming the DB7 and pushing it into supercar territory, this became - at the time - the company's most built car.

 

This particular DB7 Vantage started out its life as a press car before being sold to its first 'proper' owner. But as one of the last DB7 Vantages built and first registered in July 2004, this car had a number of options fitted such as Touchtronic transmission, a heated front screen, powerfold mirrors, a Becker satellite navigation system and large bore tailpipes amongst others.

Finished in the contrasting colours of Stronsay Silver with an all Charcoal colour leather interior and carpets, but with a smoked alcantara headlining, this is a dignified Aston Martin. But once you press the engine start button, the distinctive V12 growl ensures that you know you're in a high performance car and the surge away from standstill confirms it. And the beauty of the Touchtronic transmission is that you can match it to your driving mood - from lazy automatic all the way though to direct  gearshifts via the steering wheel buttons.

After being imported back into the UK from Jersey in 2016 by the current owner (with all import duties paid), the car has since undergone a series of in-depth maintenance works including a rebuilt differential and a powder coated cradle assembly, a new oil sump gasket with the subframe also being painted and a recent full air-conditoning service including a new evaporator at a cost of £5,000.

With a full Aston Martin service history until imported back into the UK, it has since been serviced and maintained by marque specialists Chicane as well as by Chris Done of astondb7.com, including a DB7 GT brake upgrade including new discs and calipers.

The DB7 marked the end of Aston Martins made with a steel chassis, as the DB9 heralded in the new era of production methods at the newly opened Gaydon factory. So whilst in some ways the DB7 ushered in a new era, it also waved goodbye to another. Destined to become a classic, this is a great opportunity to purchase an extremely well sorted V12 Aston Martin before prices start to rise - which they undoubtedly will

 

For peace of mind as a new owner, this Aston will be sold with a full pre-sale inspection by Chicane and 12 months MOT. Full details available on request.
