There’s something special about a V12. It’s a supremely decadent number of cylinders and has got to be an engine configuration on every petrolhead’s bucket list. And this Aston Martin DB7 could fulfil that need very nicely.
Showing just 17,500 miles on the odometer, and with an extensive service history to back this up, this Aston Martin has been very well cared for. You only have to take a look at this exceptional 2002 DB7 to see that it remains in fantastic condition.
This Vantage will make a great addition to any collection.
The History and Paperwork
Four former keepers
Only 17,500 miles on the clock
MoT to February 2023, with no advisories
Never failed an MoT
Two tone ‘Forest Green’ and ‘Parchment' leather
Very clean carpets and headlining
Brand new wind deflector
The luxurious leather interior of this DB7 is finished in two tone: ‘Forest Green’ and ‘Parchment’. This remains in excellent condition, with some signs of use to the driver’s seat, which could easily be cleaned and improved upon. The electronically adjustable seats are said to be working exactly as they should do and the steering wheel shows little sign of wear.
On the dashboard, the wood veneer retains its deeply polished finish, with no signs of damage that we could see. And the instrumentation and switch gear is all bright and clear, with no warning lights on the dashboard. The only issue being that the radio is said to work despite its screen not functioning.
The green carpets are luxuriously thick and are only showing a little wear in the driver’s footwell, the rest being in excellent condition. The roof lining is also clean and tidy.
In the boot, there are all the necessary extras that were supplied with the car: warning triangle and under the floor, a CD changer, tool kit and tyre repair kit.
‘Buckinghamshire Green’ paintwork in excellent condition
Clean canvas hood, free from creases
Factory fitted medium bore exhaust
This DB7’s low mileage can clearly be seen when you take a close look at its paintwork. There are only very few small chips to the front of the car but the whole vehicle retains its deep lustre.
Along its sides, the sleek smooth lines of the Aston are uninterrupted, with no dings or knocks. The windows are all in good order, with no scratches to mention. The windscreen is also heated and the seals are in excellent order. The doors align as they should, and the chrome door handles are in good order, with no tarnishing.
To the rear, everything is straight, the lights are free from any chips or cracks and the badges are all in good order. Medium bore exhaust tailpipes were fitted as an optional extra when new.
The roof has clearly spent a lot of time up, as the amount of creasing to the material is minimal. The roof is operated by unclipping two clips in the front of the car and a touch of a button sees the roof unfold, you can then cover it with the leather tonneau cover.
The alloy wheels are in excellent condition with no kerb damage to be seen or corrosion to the faces of the wheels.
420bhp 6-litre V12
Limited to 165mph
Upgraded radiator tank
Brand new battery
Trickle charger included
The engine fires up just as it should and sounds fantastic. the owner reports that it runs and drives as you would expect for a 17,500 mile car, changing smoothly through the 5-speed automatic gearbox.
There are no untoward noises coming from the transmission or suspension. And the huge drilled discs pull the car up in a straight line.
One thing the seller has upgraded is the radiator expansion tank. These are reported to be prone to cracking and so the seller has wisely had an aluminium one fabricated and fitted to eliminate this.
From one of Britain's most prestigious luxury sports car manufacturers, this 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.
This car’s low mileage makes it a particularly attractive proposition, having covered just over 17,500 miles in its twenty years.
The next owner will certainly enjoy driving this luxury grand tourer, with the added reassurance of its extensive service history.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £10,000
£10,000 to £50,000
£50,000 to £100,000
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours. You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
What are pre-bids?
A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.
Problem with your bid
Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
