Supreme style and sophistication. Elegance, presence and poise. Effortless pace in the lap of luxury. Awe-inspiring, uncompromising and with a name steeped in history, the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is synonymous with everything that is desirable in a high performance sports car. Under the direction of Walter Hayes, Aston Martin’s Project DP1999 revived the spirit of the classic DB4, debuting at the 1993 Geneva Motor Show as the DB7. With universally acclaimed styling by Ian Callum, the DB7 was initially powered by a 3.2-litre DOHC in-line six-cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder, Zytec multi-point fuel injection and an Eaton belt-driven supercharger, the 335 bhp Aston Martin delivering stunning performance. With a choice of a Getrag five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions, plus Lockheed ventilated disc brakes and alloy18-inch rims, the DB7 also featured a bespoke interior with full Connolly hide trim and all the luxury features one would expect from an Aston Martin. In 1999 Aston Martin elevated the DB7 to full supercar status by installing the mighty 5.9-litre V12 engine from the Vanquish. With four-valves per-cylinder technology and 420 bhp on tap, the new Vantage was available with either a Tremac six-speed manual gearbox or ZF five-speed automatic (employing optional ‘Touchtronic’ technology) and could reach a top speed in excess of 185 mph, with the 0-60 mph sprint taking under five seconds. The Vantage’s bodywork was revised to give a more aggressive appearance, with a bigger grille and a new 18-inch wheel design shod with Bridgestone S02 tyres. With a little over 7000 examples completed, the DB7 was the most successful Aston Martin to that point and is now becoming a relatively affordable classic, making the ultimate Vantage variant an excellent investment to be enjoyed from behind the wheel and admired for its beautiful lines.
