The Appeal

The DB7 may very well be one of the most impactful Aston Martins ever produced and is often credited as the marque’s knight in shining armour amidst turbulent times. With the assistance of the Ford Motor Company, and with TWR at the helm, the DB7 would help re-ignite the demand for luxury British tourers, soon proving incredibly successful in a rather difficult market. 

The DB7 was so successful in fact, that a much more powerful Vantage spec model was quickly greenlit, and set out to take the world by storm. These highly desirable Vantage models are capable of a blisteringly quick 0-60 time of just 4.9 seconds as a result of their hand-crafted V12 engines, and offer one of the finer driving experiences available, even today. 

This particular DB7 Vantage does of course also hold the Volante specification, combining the Vantage’s superb performance, with top-down motoring fun. In addition to boasting such a high specification, this example has covered a mere 21k across its two total owners, and stands in mightily impressive condition, inside and out. 
 If you’re looking for a low-mileage collection piece, or a beautifully preserved weekend toy, very few vehicles on the market will hit the spot quite like this 2002 DB7 Vantage Volante. 

The History and Paperwork

  • First registered on the 27th of September, 2002
  • Enjoyed by just two recorded keepers, with an impressively low mileage figure of just 21,212
  • Currently stored in a high-end vehicle storage facility
  • Large file with very invoice for every expenditure
  • Documentation for all additional options
  • Original owner recently contacted to confirm provenance and just replaced the DB9 which replaced the DB7 
  • The blue leather tonneau cover ( not shown ) is also with the car  
  • Regularly serviced, with excellent MOT history to show
  • Includes the likes of the original handbook, and the current V5C document
  • Comes ready to enjoy, with advisory-free MOT until August 2024

This gorgeous DB7 was first registered on the 27th of September 2002 and would be enjoyed by the first keeper for around three and a half years, covering approximately seven thousand miles in the process. Upon being acquired by the second keeper, the vehicle would see just 14 or so thousand miles throughout their 17-year ownership, before being retired to dry storage, by the current custodian. 
Throughout this Aston’s life, great attention has been paid to ensuring the vehicle remains in tip-top mechanical order, with regular servicing, often with no more than 3000 miles between each interval. In addition to an impressive maintenance record under its belt, there are plenty of clear MOT passes to observe, including the current test, which is valid until August 2024. 

A small selection of paperwork is included with the vehicle, consisting of the current MOT certificate, an invoice from Aston Martin Leeds, the original owner’s booklet, and the current V5C document. Patiently awaiting its next lucky owner from within a professional, dry storage facility, this Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is ready to be enjoyed once more.

The Interior

  • Classy two-tone leather upholstery
  • Incredibly comfortable, and well-equipped
  • Features three-way electronic seat adjustment
  • Offered in excellent overall condition, with very few signs of use

In true Aston Martin fashion, the interior of this DB7 is nothing short of elegant, offering classy leather upholstery, subtle wooden details, and an array of luxurious comforts at your disposal. Further to the car’s merit, the cockpit has been beautifully preserved over the years, and now reflects a very impressive overall condition. 
 In fact, with the exception of the expected light signs of use upon the driver’s seat, all seats throughout the cabin offer clear finishes, very much in keeping with the low mileage covered. Carpeting throughout the interior follows suit, with no noteworthy signs of wear to note, other than slight rubber perishing to the driver’s mat. 

Facing forward, you’ll find the dashboard, steering wheel and centre console all in fantastic order, proudly displaying clear contact points, with no noteworthy signs of wear to mention. The excellent preservation found within the cabin does of course extend to the boot, which houses tidy carpeting, a healthy battery,  the original disc changer, and the Aston Martin Premium Audio amplifier. 

Overall, the interior reflects a beautifully preserved finish throughout, one not only in line with the displayed mileage but also one wholly worthy of the Aston Martin badge.

The Exterior

  • Iconic DB7 styling, with Vantage specification details
  • Beautifully preserved Solent Silver paintwork
  • Freshly refurbished 18” alloy wheels
  • Offered in fantastic overall condition

Aston Martin is of course renowned for producing some of the finest automotive art yet to grace the roads, forever standing as the epitome of style and elegance. This DB7 is of course no exception to the age-old reputation of its maker, showcasing sleek body lines, with familiar styling cues, and subtle Vantage-specific features. 

In addition to showcasing what is arguably one of the finer Aston Martin designs of recent years, this Voltante model has also stood tall against the test of time and offers a truly gorgeous finish. The Solent Silver paintwork boasts plenty of metallic flake, an incredibly glossy finish and rather impressively, only shows an incredibly minor number of the expected use-related blemishes. 

Having been recently refurbished, all four wheels also present themselves beautifully and come wrapped in a set of Bridgestone tyres, with plenty of tread left to enjoy. All accompanying badging, glass and details follow very closely, albeit with an ever so slight imperfection to the front grille. 

It deserves to be noted that the folding soft-top roof not only folds away smoothly but offers an equally impressive, and water-tight finish. There are of course a few very minor blemishes to show, but nothing that wouldn’t be alleviated with a little dash of TLC.

Overall, you’ll certainly find very little to fault with this beautiful DB7, and with such an impressive overall finish, the vehicle is sure to impress wherever it ventures. 

The Mechanics

  • Powered by a 5.9L V12, with a Touchtronic, automatic transmission
  • Offers incredibly impressive performance, and excellent ride comfort
  • Regularly serviced by JCT600, often going no more than 3000 miles between services
  • Comes ready to enjoy, with advisory-free MOT until August 2024

Although beautifully elegant and subtle on the exterior, this Vantage spec DB7 certainly packs a punch, with a handbuilt 5.9L V12 hiding under the bonnet. Paired with a buttery smooth automatic transmission, the V12 offers blistering power throughout the rev range, with a subtle, yet grin-inducing V12 soundtrack to match.

Buyers will be pleased to know that as a result of its excellent maintenance history and low mileage, this example fires up right away, and drives beautifully, with no known mechanical faults to note. The cherry on top, is advisory-free MOT until August 2024, ensuring stress-free motoring, and many more happy miles ahead. 


The DB7 even in its standard form is well deserving of a spot in any collector’s toy box, for its impactful presence, and key contributions to Aston Martin’s legacy. This example, however, sits with even greater collection potential, thanks to its highly desirable V12 Vantage specification, low-mileage figure, low owner count, excellent mechanical health, and beautifully preserved finish.
 If you’re on the search for a superb example of Aston Martin’s knight in shining armour, this 2002 DB7 Vantage Volante is the gem for you.

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.


Car & Classic 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.

Auto-bidding increments

  • 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.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

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.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
