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.

Understood to have been exported and first registered in Paris 'V687 MTM' was repatriated back to the UK in c. 2004. Showing just 28, 800 miles and having had just 1 former UK registered keeper, this DB7 is further enhanced with Works Service fitted ‘Jaffa’ rear lights from the 1990s supercharged V8 Vantage with a revised rear bumper. Having been in current lady ownership since 2005, we are informed the DB7 has always been stored in a heated garage and comes with a fitted car cover. Offered with original handbook and service book which include services stamps from Newport Pagnell and current V5C Registration Document. A new battery has also just been fitted.

PLEASE NOTE: The registration plate displayed on the Aston Martin is not included in the sale.
