Introduced in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six-cylinder model since production of the DBS had finished in 1971. Designed by Ian Callum at the same time as he designed the coupe, the Volante looks elegant both hood up or down, much like the earlier Aston Martin drophead cars. Well received, it attracted new customers worldwide, with the traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupé body, robust six-cylinder engine and a luxury interior. Power was supplied by an all-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six-cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. The DB7 was undoubtedly the catalyst for the modern line of Aston Martin.
Presented in its original Obsidian Black Metallic finish with a matching Raven Black leather interior, this DB7 Volante shows a mere 18,000 miles from new, supported by a full service record. With just 3 former keepers, the DB7 is said to both look and drive superbly.
A wonderful example of this swiftly appreciating classic, and the genesis of the modern Aston Martin line; a great investment and a rewarding driving experience.
