Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six-cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk. II ended in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout, curvaceous two door coupé body and a powerful six-cylinder engine.

The DB7 was available as a coupé or convertible, and with a manual or an automatic gearbox. Initially offered with either a straight-six or a V8 engine, the range was later expanded to include the glorious six-litre V12 engine. Famously intended to be the Jaguar F-Type, the DB7’s chassis can trace its roots directly to that of the Jaguar XJS though the underpinnings were so thoroughly re-engineered by Tom Walkinshaw racing (TWR) as to make them completely different cars. Built in the same factory that used to build the Jaguar XJ220, the DB7 is the only modern Aston Martin to utilise a steel monocoque body.

First registered on 1st August 1995, this early six-cylinder DB7 Coupe was specified in metallic black with a cream leather interior (piped in black) and the desirable 5-speed manual gearbox. In its early years the DB7 was serviced by Stratstone (until 2002), and thereafter by specialists, with various bills to support maintenance work undertaken. Notably the DB7 benefitted from new brake discs and pads around 5,000 miles ago, and more recently the Turbo was overhauled and the engine tuned, also new track rod ends and a battery were fitted. Another welcome addition is the fitting of a new stainless exhaust system to the car.

The bodywork is said to be in generally very good order with only one or two minor blemishes, and the interior also presents very well for its age with only a few signs of wear commensurate with age. The DB7 is offered complete with original service book, invoices for work completed and parts acquired, a new MoT certificate to January 2023, and UK V5C.

The DB7 is a very good looking and highly usable modern classic, and we feel this manual example offers excellent value in the current market.
