The long awaited Vantage variant of the DB7 was unveiled at the 1999 Geneva Salon. A muscular makeover had endowed it with beefed up flanks, new sills, a larger air intake, and revised grille, lights and rear bumper. Uprated suspension and larger Brembo brakes served to keep the 420bhp 6.0-litre V12 engine in check - the newcomer could reach 60mph in 5 seconds and 184 mph.
This stunning-looking example is finished in Aysgarth Metallic Blue and trimmed in Tan and Blue hide. Its impressive specification includes: manual transmission, heated electric sports seats; heated windscreen; electric windows and mirrors; sports exhaust; CD stack/upgraded stereo; Aston Martin trickle charger and engine pre-heater; comprehensive toolkit. The Aston has made several trips to Europe this year and comes complete with extensive maintenance history comprising 19 stamps. The last was added just 400 miles ago and concerned a full service that included 12 new coil packs, sparking plugs, replacement vacuum/emissions pipework etc at a cost of nearly £3,000. The vendor describes the Vantage as 'a thoroughly enjoyed example of the marque that's been thoroughly looked after', and is now offering it complete with MOT to September 14th 2016 in order to finance a classic Jaguar project.
