THE ASTON MARTIN DB7 VANTAGE

Introduced in March 1999, the DB7 Vantage was an exciting new model powered by a state-of-the-art, all-alloy V12 engine - a 'first' for a production Aston Martin. This 6-liter, quad-cam, 48-valve unit 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 Touchtronic five-speed automatic with manually selectable ratios. A top speed of 185mph was claimed for the Vantage Coupe.

The existing six-cylinder DB7 bodyshell was re-engineered to accommodate the new V12 engine/transmission package, resulting in a stiffer structure exceeding all contemporary crash test requirements, while the suspension was developed specifically for this new model. The 18" 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.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed by hand at the famed Newport Pagnell Aston Martin plant during October of 2002 , and thus from the final production year, this left-hand drive DB7 Vantage Coupe was equipped from new with the desirable 6-speed manual transmission, and finished as it appears today in Titanium metallic grey over a Burgundy Connolly leather interior. The new Aston was delivered to the US, where it found its first owner on the East Coast and appears to have remained there until recently. With just 22,578 miles on the odometer at time of cataloging, the V12 Aston Martin remains in largely original condition, and offers the new owner a stylish and elegant GT Coupe, mated with V12 performance.
