|1997 Aston Martin DB7 Volante|
Red with Parchment Leather and Red Piping
This attractive convertible is both exotic and practical for everyday use. This example was sold new to Oprah Winfrey, ordered for her by her local Florida based Aston Martin dealer in this striking red over parchment color combination. The standard DB7 Volante is equipped with Aston’s supercharged straight-6 cylinder engine and automatic transmission. Oprah finally decided to part with the car in2008, when it was auctioned by Gooding and Company at their Pebble Beach sale.
Cosmetically, the car is representative of a driver. There are a handful of paint imperfections and minor oxidation, common to a 33,000 mile car. We are not aware of any accidents or “stories” in the car’s background. The panel matches and door shut is excellent throughout. The tan convertible soft top is in good condition and fits well, but has minor discoloration from weather. The interior is very nice for a 16 year-old car. The dash leather and wood is brilliant, as are the door panels. The driver’s seat bolster shows very minor wear, but the balance of the upholstery is beautiful. The posh suede headliner is in excellent, unmarked condition. The car has a responsive, tight feel as you would expect of a low mileage car. Truly a unique example of a contemporary luxury sports car, the DB7 Volante can be your exotic toy while doubling as your daily driver. This particular example is further enhanced by its celebrity ownership history.
This Aston Martin is offered with both a California title in Oprah Winfrey’s name, as well as EU paperwork, allowing the new owner to preserve the original Winfrey title.
