THE DB7 VANTAGE

Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1999, the DB7 Vantage was no mere high-performance version of the existing six-cylinder DB7, but an exciting new model powered by a state-of the-art, all-alloy V12 engine, the first of this configuration to power a production Aston Martin. Produced jointly by parent company Ford's Research and Vehicle Technology department and fellow group member Cosworth Technology, this 6-liter, quad-cam, 48-valve unit produced 420bhp and 400lb/ft of torque while meeting all current and projected emissions regulations. Engine functions, diagnostics, traction control and vehicle security were assigned to a Visteon electronic engine management system. To accommodate the new powertrain package, the existing DB7 bodyshell was re-engineered, acquiring a new frontal structure and enlarged transmission tunnel. The result was a torsionally stiffer structure that exceeded all contemporary crash test requirements.

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 an individual buyer's personal requirements. All the usual luxury appurtenances came as standard, while clients could choose from a list of options that included satellite navigation, fitted luggage and parking sensors.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The exquisite, low-mile DB7 Vantage Volante presented here appears much as it did when completed at the Aston Martin works, finished in Pentland Green over a tan leather interior, with neatly matching green carpeting and mohair convertible top. Factory options include mesh grilles, heated front screen, color keyed leather steering wheel, premium audio system, elm wood veneer and 19-inch sport wheels. This Aston Martin has enjoyed only seasonal use, and has been serviced when needed to remain in exceptional original condition. It is complete with factory books and tools, as well at the umbrella. Here is a rare opportunity to acquire a low-mileage example of the ultimate soft-top DB7 for a fraction of the original purchase price.
