The Aston Martin DB7 is a Grand Tourer which was produced from September 1994 to December 2004. The Grand Tourer was available either as a Coupé or a Convertible. The prototype was complete by November 1992, and debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1993. 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 bhp and 400 lb⋅ft of torque. Transmissions were available with 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 example is a very unusual car with a very highly spec'd cabin. It includes built in factory sat-nav and DVD player, higher quality carpets, and Parrot hands free phone set-up. In the boot the car was fitted with a space saver wheel and tool kit, as well as an umbrella on the underside of the boot lid. The car is said to be mechanically strong, having been well looked after. It has recently benefitted from some minor rust repairs around the rear wheel arches and some paintwork. The floor pans have been replaced, and all of the advised work on the past MOT has been completed. It has had all its wheels refurbished and the sale includes the private registration.

The vendor has recently completed a trouble-free tour of Ireland, but the car has only done 3,000 miles in his ownership. Unfortunately, health problems now force a reluctant sale. This car gives a rare opportunity to acquire an Aston Martin at a sensible price. DB7 values have been rising over the last few years with the average cost of a Vantage being between £20k and £40k, making this a smart buy for anyone wanting to get on the Aston ladder.
