1998 Aston Martin DB7 (i6)

Rare low mileage manual car with a comprehensive service history and attractive colour combination

The elegant DB7 was designed by Ian Callum while working for Tom Walkinshaw and used the 3.2-litre straight-six AJ6 engine as a base. With a thicker block as used in racing and the Eaton supercharger, it produced 335bhp which delivered a 0-60 time of just 5.4 seconds.

All this power was driven through a five speed Getrag gearbox. Together with the supercharger howling and better weight distribution, its thought to be a better driver's car than the V12. The interior has a gorgeous leather and walnut trim, with thick Connolly hide seats and matching piping.

This DB7 was originally supplied to Five Oaks Garage, the Aston Martin dealer in the Channel Islands. The service book has 13 stamps to 39,119 miles and now shows just over 41,000 miles, that averages at just some 1,700 miles per year over it's pampered  life.

It is a completely standard car apart from the sports exhaust, which is an AM upgrade.  It’s never been driven in the wet in the current ownership and only waterless wax has been used on the bodywork.  It’s had new boot struts, a brand new wing mirror and a new battery was also fitted. For the recent MOT, it just required a new set of wipers, which were replaced.

There are many invoices supporting it's care over the years and it now has a fresh MOT to February 2023. This stunning car is far from the average DB7 and is a highly desirable yet affordable Aston.
