Overview

Model History

The first prototype of the Aston Martin DB7 was completed in November 1992 and debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the following year. The design of the car was done by by Ian Callum and Keith Helfet. The DB7 was positioned alongside the V8 Virage, introduced a few years earlier.
With the production of the V8 Virage continuing at Newport Pagnell, Aston Martin required a new factory to build the newly introduced DB7. For this a factory was acquired at Bloxham, Oxfordshire, here the famous Jaguar XJ220 had been previously produced. During its production run every DB7 would be built here. The DB7 and its relatives were the only Aston Martins produced in Bloxham.
The convertible version of the DB7, the Volante, was first unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 1996. Both the Coupe and the Volante versions use a supercharged straight-six engine producing 335 bhp and 489 Nm of torque. The car was available with a 4-speed automatic transmission, or a 5-speed manual from Getrag.

According to register keepers only 60 manual DB7 Volantes were manufactured! Fewer LHD and even fewer European low mileage cars. So an interesting opportunity to be enjoyed!
