Aston Martin book pack and wallet including service bookNew tyres, freshly serviced and the MOT is valid until early October 2020Aston 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 performanceand Ian Callum enlarged the grille, added fog lamps, and restyled the valances to give the car a more purposeful look. The Vantage interior leather trim was cut and sewn at a special trim shop at Newport Pagnell, where the carpet and wood veneers were also prepared.This superb DB7 Vantage was originally supplied by Stratstone of Wilmslow on 28/02/2003 in Tungsten Silver with an Obsidianleather and Burr Walnut interior and has been enjoyed by three former keepers who between them have covered just over 48,000 miles.
