Introduced in 1993 to the public, the handsome new DB7 was Aston
Martin's first six-cylinder model since production of the DBS had
finished in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of
earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be
seen. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever
produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted
new customers worldwide with its traditional layout of the
curvaceous two door coupé body and robust six-cylinder engine.
Power was supplied by an all alloy double overhead camshaft
supercharged 24 valve, inline six-cylinder engine which produced
335bhp at 5750rpm. Regarded by many as the purist modern Aston
Martin, the DB7 will undoubtedly be a collectable car for years to
come and is equally at home in the city or out on the open
road.

This stunning early example of the (pre-air bag) automatic is
finished in near unmarked silver coachwork with a matching grey
leather interior and blue trim. Having covered a mere 27,000 miles
and in stunning condition, this coupé recently received a £1,500
Aston Martin specialist service; the mechanic working on the car
commented that …it is the best example of an early i6 he has ever
seen. Given the low mileage, the interior is as new; the underside
of the car has been clear wax oiled to preserve its spectacular
condition. A genuine righthand drive DB7, this car can safely be
described as one of the best available; the recent service and the
MoT test certificate, valid until October 2017, also add to the
confidence in this car which will certainly capture the imagination
of any Aston Martin collector or enthusiast.

*Interested parties should note that the current number plate is
to be retained and a new, age-related plate will be issued
instead.
