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 of the V12 Vantage with a silky smooth automatic gearbox was supplied by Grange Aston Martin of Essex in Stronsay Silver with Pacific Blue leather interior. It has been enjoyed by three previous owners and the service records indicate some nine services. The current MOT is valid until the 10th June 2021 and the car is accompanied by the original green leather owner's guide including the service records, build sheet, purchase receipt, the V5c and invoices supporting the current mileage of just over 40,650 and a spare key.
Front-engined, V12 Grand Tourers have seen mounting interest from enthusiasts over the last few years and this impressively presented DB7 Vantage with its ageless looks, sophisticated colour combination, service history and sensible "driver's" mileage, seems remarkable value for money and the perfect car for the first time modern-classic buyer.
