Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk. II ended in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout, curvaceous two door coupé body and a powerful six cylinder engine.
This lovely example has been with the current vendor for the last 11 years and was owned by the Aston Martin Club Secretary (Diane Howe) prior to his ownership. Needless to say, the car presents in very good order with a history file that can only be described as exhaustive. A rare manual model, this DB7 looks wonderful in Cheviot Red and contrasting Parchment interior, which shows a delightful patina. A superbly original car that has been owned by true enthusiasts and would be a credit to any collector.
