Footnotes

  • Introduced in March 1999, the DB7 Vantage joined the original six-cylinder DB7, which had been Aston Martin's 'entry level' model since its introduction in 1994. This exciting new model was powered by a state-of-the-art, all-alloy V12 engine - a 'first' for a production Aston Martin. A 6.0-litre, quad-cam, 48-valve design, it produced 420bhp and 400lb/ft of torque while meeting all current and projected emissions regulations. There was a choice of two alternative transmissions: a new six-speed manual or ZF five-speed automatic with manually selectable ratios. A top speed of 185mph was claimed for the Vantage coupé.

    Brilliantly styled by Ian Callum in a manner reminiscent of the traditional Aston Martin, the DB7 body was notable for employing numerous composite-material panels in its construction. In order to accommodate the new V12 engine/transmission package it was extensively re-engineered, resulting in a stiffer structure exceeding all contemporary crash test requirements, while the suspension was developed specifically for this new model. The 15" diameter wheels too were unique to the Vantage, which also featured cross-drilled and ventilated Brembo brakes equipped with ABS.

    Notwithstanding all the DB7 Vantage's high-tech attributes, its makers had not lost sight of customer expectations of what constituted an Aston Martin. Thus the Vantage's hand crafted interior featured traditional Connolly hide upholstery and could be trimmed and equipped to individual customer requirements. All the usual luxury fittings came as standard, while clients could choose from an extensive list of options.

    One of only 19 'Jubilee' special edition models made in 2002, this DB7 Vantage is number '16' of the series and comes with a plaque and photographs of it being built. An identical DB7 Vantage was used in the film 'Johnny English', starring Rowan Atkinson. 'FN02 HUH' has covered approximately 42,000 miles from new in the current owner's hands. However, it has been transferred between his companies and was once loaned to a friend, hence the number of keepers. Bills on file record regular servicing, initially by Aston Martin Works Service, then Stratstone and more recently Chiltern Aston. The car's most recent visit to the latter was in September 2012 (at 42,196 miles) for a 45,000-mile service, MoT test and various other works costing over £10,000. Finished in blue with grey/blue leather interior, the car is described as in generally excellent condition and offered with the aforementioned service bills, current MoT and Swansea V5C document.
