Aston Martin introduced the long-awaited Vantage version of their successful DB7 in 1999. Sporting a Cosworth designed, 5.9 litre V12 producing a creamy 420bhp, the car was super-quick and was electronically limited to 185mph. The V12 had a serious appetite for air compared to its 6-cylinder predecessor, demanding a larger intake and other modifications to the frontal airflow were made to aid cooling.
Other changes included chassis and braking upgrades to cope with the increased performance, and Ian Callum enlarged the grille, added fog lamps, and restyled the valances to give the car a more purposeful look. The Vantage interior leather trim was cut and sewn at a special trim shop at Newport Pagnell, where the carpet and wood veneers were also prepared.
This stunning Aston Martin DB7 Vantage has only a covered a modest 30,000km from new. Described to be in good to excellent condition throughout, this very original unmolested example comes with all of its books, manuals and tools.
MOT’d until July 2018 this example comes with a comprehensive service history stamped by both Aston-Martin & Aston-Martin approved Specialists.
