Although Victor Gauntlett had long mooted the idea, it took the arrival of Ford money and TWR Group know-how for a new generation, 'small' Aston Martin to become reality. Unveiled at the March 1993 Geneva Salon the DB7 had been subjected to more testing and development work than any of the marque's previous models. The long awaited V12-engined DB7 Vantage was introduced at the Geneva Salon six years later. The styling had been transformed by its original designer, Ian Callum, and the chassis featured completely new front and rear suspension and more powerful Brembo brakes, and the model was available with either a six-speed close ratio manual gearbox or five-speed automatic unit with the jewel in the newcomer's crown being the 6-litre 420bhp engine nestling under the bonnet - the first V12 unit ever to power a production Aston Martin.

'V342 FLN' is finished in the tasteful combination of Pentland Green bodywork with Fawn and Olive leather interior trim, Green mohair hood and green leather hood cover. Having covered just 40,129 miles from new which is supported by the service history we understand the Aston has just been inspected and serviced by Excalibur Engineering with the brake discs recently being skimmed and new brake pads fitted. Offered with the original handbooks, service book containing 15 stamps, old invoices and spare key we are told that 'V342 FLN' is fitted with a Cobra tracker which can be transferred to the new owner - on payment of subscription. Having recently been shod with new correct specification Bridgestone S02 rear tyres, the aftermarket upgraded Sony audio system features USB and Bluetooth for hands free phone and music streaming. A fine looking and good driving example, considered by the vendor as well maintained he describes the bodywork, paintwork, V12 engine, automatic transmission and interior as 'very good' and is offering the Aston with an MOT valid to May 19, 2016.
