The Aston Martin DB7 is a grand tourer which was produced by Aston Martin 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, the car was styled by Ian Callum and Keith Helfet. The six-cylinder DB7 was positioned as an “entry-level” model below the hand-built V8 Virage introduced a few years earlier. This model was the highest production Aston Martin vehicle ever, with more than 7,000 built before it was replaced by the DB9. 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 (313 kW; 426 PS) and 400 lb·ft (540 N·m) of torque. It has a compression ratio of 10.3:1. 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 (299 km/h) with the manual gearbox or 165 mph (266 km/h) with the automatic gearbox, and would accelerate from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.9 seconds.
This is a fine example of this highly sought after model of this marque, presented in metallic grey, with claret interior and matching hood. This particular Aston Martin has the very desirable and rare manual gearbox making this a very exciting V12 engined sports car. These were undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Aston Martins to be built and remains so to this day. The convertible Vantage with the manual gearbox being the one to have and is a great investment. The odometer is showing a mere 47,000 km from new.
Dies ist ein gutes Beispiel eines sehr begehrten Modells dieser Marke, in Metallic Grau mit bordeauxfarbenem Interieur und passender Haube. Dieser besondere Aston Martin hat das sehr wünschenswerte und seltene Schaltgetriebe, was es zu einem sehr spannenden V12-Motor-Sportwagen macht. Dies sind zweifelsfrei bis heute eines der schönsten Aston Martins die je gebaut wurden. Dieses Cabriolet mit Schaltgetriebe ist eine tolle Investition. Der Kilometerzähler zeigt lediglich 47.000 km von neu auf.
