At the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, Aston Martin introduced the long-awaited Vantage version of their successful DB7. Sporting a Cosworth designed, 5.9-litre V12 producing a creamy 420bhp, the car was super-quick and was electronically limited to 185mph. Changes included chassis and braking upgrades, to cope with the increased performance and Ian Callum enlarged the grill, added fog lamps and re-styled the valances to give the car a more purposeful look. The Vantage interior leather trim was cut and sewn at a special trim shop at Newport Pagnell, where the carpet and wood veneers were also prepared. The V12 Vantage Volante, costing over £100,000 at its launch, remained in production until 2004.

Throughout the production of the DB7 V12 Vantage, a number of limited edition models were released, one being the ‘Keswick', produced for the Lancaster Group who have two Aston Martin dealerships. Only 10 cars were made in total, 5 Coupé, and 5 Volante models. The specification included; Touchtronic gearbox (rather than standard Auto), Ferrari Nero Daytona Black coachwork, upper and lower mesh grilles, lower interior and bucket-style seats in Charcoal hide with embossed DB7, smoke headlining, heated seats, white-faced instruments, 19" wheels (normally 18"), black brake calipers, and metallic finishes in the cabin to replace wood veneers.

This right-hand drive Keswick DB7 was registered in October 2002 and is now showing 41,500 miles. This lovely example boasts Aston Martin and Aston Martin Specialist service history, with a total of 13 service stamps in the service record, having had its most recent service in July 2017. Ready for its next discerning owner this is a great opportunity to own a well-cared for Modern Classic at a competitive estimate for such a rare car.
