Lot No. 713 - 1996 Aston Martin DB7 i6 Volante

Not sold

Originally supplied new to the Sultan of Brunei.
Details Specification

Introduced to an astonished public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin's first six-cylinder model since production of the DBS had finished 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 if you looked carefully. Arguably, one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the '7' was more approachable than the leviathans that had immediately preceded it. Well received, it attracted new customers worldwide, with the traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupé body, robust six-cylinder engine and a 'proper' interior. Power was supplied by an all-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six-cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. In the same way that the beautiful little Sixties' Lotus Elan morphed, over the years, into the be-winged Esprit Turbo, the DB7 was the first in the line of modern Astons that have become more dramatic with each new model, however, we feel that the simple purity of line of the DB7, will ultimately define the breed We are very pleased to be able to offer this very special and important Volante presented in British Racing Green with a stunning Chancellor Red Leather interior, having covered just 55,500 miles. Originally supplied new to the Sultan of Brunei, this car has been extremely well looked after having been part of, possibly, the worlds largest car collection when it was new, and is beautifully presented with a huge history file and comes, no doubt, with a story or two. From long-term ownership since 2005, with a glamorous Royal history prior to that, and in this classically British and very stylish colour combination, this truly must be a future modern classic. The car will be supplied freshly serviced by a respected local Aston Martin Specialist.
