Aston Martin introduced the long-awaited Vantage version of their successful DB7 in 1999. Sporting a Cosworth-designed, 5.9-litre V12 producing a creamy 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 superb example is a V12 Vantage with the very desirable six-speed manual gearbox and was originally supplied by Stratstone of Wilmslow on 28/02/2003 in Tungsten Silver with Obsidian leather. It has been enjoyed by three previous owners and the service records indicate that it's been regularly serviced with 17 stamps in the book, the vast majority by AM, with the most recent by a marque specialist on 18-9-2019 at 47,780 miles. The current MOT is valid until 6-10-2020 and the car is accompanied by the original green leather owner's guide including the service records, the V5C, an MOT History supporting the current mileage of just over 48,000 and a spare key.
Front-engined, V12 manual Grand Tourers have seen mounting investor interest over the last few years and this impressively presented DB7 Vantage with its ageless looks, sophisticated colour combination, manual gearbox, immaculate service history and sensible mileage, seems remarkable value for money.
