Lot details

Chassis No: SCFAB32352K403424
MOT: August 2023

  • Presented in Slate Blue with complementing Grey leather interior
  • Subject to over £11,000 worth of expenditure bringing the car to standard and dry stored with little use since
  • Just c.81,000 miles and 3 former keepers

Introduced at the March 1999 Geneva Salon, the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage eschewed its predecessor's 3228cc supercharged straight-six for a 5935cc 48-valve, all-alloy V12 that developed 420bhp and 400lbft. Available with a choice of six-speed manual, five-speed automatic, or (later) Touchtronic semi-auto transmission, the DB7 Vantage could be had in Coupe or Volante (Convertible) guises. The latter had its top speed limited to 165mph but could reportedly accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds. To cope with such performance, the 2+2-seater's structure, suspension, and brakes were all upgraded. Asked to rework his masterpiece, stylist Ian Callum added a reshaped back bumper, more pronounced sills, combined driving lamps/indicators, and horizontal bars to the radiator grille. Priced at £104,486 in 2002, Aston Martin's flagship soft-top came with central locking, electric windows/mirrors, traction control, ABS, air-conditioning, front airbags, alarm/immobilizer, and 18-inch alloy wheels as standard. Notable as the marque's first V12 production model, the DB7 Vantage lasted until 2003 by which time some 2,056 Volantes had been made, with just 778 in right-hand drive.

Presented in Slate Blue with complementing Grey leather interior, this 2003 model year DB7 was purchased by its current owner in 2012 and shortly after the purchase, was subject to extensive works to bring it to standard, totalling over £11,000. Since purchase, the car has been dry stored, seeing occasional use, but turned over monthly and run to temperature, rolled to prevent flat spots in the tyres and serviced routinely. Now showing just c.81,000 miles and benefiting from having had just 3 former keepers, this DB7 Vantage is offered with its original bookpack containing 16 service stamps, with the most recent with EMS Ltd at 79,862 miles. Also included is a hand-written expenditure record for 2012 when the car was purchased, a small collection of previous receipts and invoices and the current V5C Document. As well as this, the car boasts an MOT valid until 22 August 2023. The vendor rates the condition of the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment, paintwork, transmission and interior trim all as ‘Very Good’.
