Sporting a Cosworth-designed, 5.9-litre V12 producing 420bhp, the car was super-quick and was electronically limited to 185mph. The V12 had a serious appetite for air compared to its 6-cylinder predecessor, demanding a larger intake and other modifications to the frontal airflow were made to aid cooling. Other changes included chassis and braking upgrades to cope with the increased performance, and Ian Callum enlarged the grille, added fog lamps, and restyled the valances to give the car a more purposeful look. This fabulous DB7 Vantage is finished in Pentland Green with a classic Aston interior in Forest and Fawn leather. DB7s look good in most colours (apart from perhaps, Primrose) but the deep Pentland Green and the understated interior just suggest good taste. It was optioned from new with electrically operated heated front seats, electric mirrors, Alcantara headlining, a Parrot premium sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, rear parking sensors, heated front screen, air conditioning, 5-speed automatic gearbox with a ‘Sports’ function, traction control, embossed AM ‘Wing’ logos to front seats and burr oak details. In contrast to all this luxury, the bright red starter button and 18-inch alloys and black callipers pay a respectful nod to Aston’s long sporting heritage. The original book pack appears as cared for as the rest of the car and the comprehensive service records have been stamped at the following mileages; 1, 8, 12, 17, 21, 23, 25, 32, 39, 42, 45, 48, 50, 51 and 54,000 miles, effectively once per annum. The Vantage was purchased by our vendor’s late father in June 2016 and has only covered around 2,500 miles since then. During that period it’s been looked after by Aston specialist, Andy Lee of Sandbach, Cheshire and remains in simply splendid condition, running and driving as you might expect from the car’s history and level of care. The current indicated mileage is 56,463 and the MOT is valid until 1/05/2023. The expression “No expense spared” can properly be applied in the case of this lovely DB7 and your early inspection is welcomed and encouraged to truly appreciate this exceptional motor car.
