1999 Aston Martin DB7 Volante Convertible
Engine no. SCFAA4110XK202613
It was Aston Martin's 1987 acquisition by Ford that ensured its future, and the latter's take-over of Jaguar that made possible the revival of the dormant 'DB' line. Jaguar's axed XJ-S replacement - the XJ41 - was deemed more suitable as an 'entry level' Aston Martin and work on the project commenced towards the end of 1991. Brilliantly styled by Ian Callum in a manner reminiscent of traditional Aston Martins, the body was notable for employing composite materials in its construction. The engine was a 3.2-litre version of the 24-valve AJ-6 unit that had replaced the venerable XK in Jaguar's saloon range, which was endowed with a suitable power output courtesy of an Eaton supercharger. The result was 335bhp and a top speed of 160mph, a performance placing the DB7 on a par with rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz 500SL and Porsche 928. A little under three years after the DB7's debut, the planned Volante convertible was launched in January 1996.

This automatic transmission DB7 Volante was delivered new to Germany and remained with the original owner until it was sold to the current vendor in February 2011 (at 30,600 kilometres). Currently displaying a total of 48,000 kilometres on the odometer, it remains in very good original condition and is offered with service booklet, warranty copy, a maintenance invoice, a copy of the German Fahrzeugbrief and Austrian registration papers.

No reserve.

Cette DB7 Volante à boîte automatique livrée neuve en Allemagne a été conservée par son premier propriétaire jusqu'à sa cession au vendeur actuel en février 2011 (avec 30 600 km). Affichant actuellement 48 000 km au compteur, et demeurée en très bel état d'origine, elle est offerte avec son livret d'entretien, copie de la garantie, une facture d'entretien, la copie du Fahrzeugbrief et ses papiers d'immatriculation en Autriche.

Sans réserve.
