Description

Aston Martin DB7 Coupe Dunhill

A very rare DB7 when it was first built and now even more so, due to its original rarity and the way that this car has been cared for and kept since.

A 1998 model year car with twin airbags and later seat bases, etc. Built new to the then recently announced Alfred Dunhill specification released from production 10th December 1998 and first registered 16th December 1998 on an ‘S’ suffix for the original owner.

The Alfred Dunhill DB7 was only available with a metallic platinum exterior and charcoal Connolly hide embossed with the Dunhill logo and silver-grey piping, traditional walnut veneers were replaced with a brushed aluminium finish, combined with the special edition clock based on the Millennium Dunhill watch. The charcoal carpets were also edged in silver grey leather and special AD vehicle instruments to match the clock face, fitted. On the outside the AD came with a special colour front grille, colour coded locks and Anthracite road wheels with unique centre caps that again replicated the Dunhill Millennium watch case.

Aston Martin intended to build and supply a total of 150 Alfred Dunhill examples, available as Coupe and Volante with automatic or manual transmission. It is believed from the best currently available records that only approximately 80 examples were actually built with the current register showing just 25 of these as RHD Coupes. This particular car was built with the very rare and now incredibly desirable five speed manual transmission.

A very special car that has been well cared for by its previous custodians, only four owners from new and having covered just over 48,000 miles in total (with a documented speedo charge). Comes with original Dunhill hand books containing twenty-six stamps predominantly by Aston Martin Works Service and ourselves. Additionally has a large file containing lots of old invoices, all MOTs back to the first in 2001. Original Dunhill brochure, Dunhill factory press release, old tax discs and sundry related paperworks. Car also retains its original unique brushed aluminium Kenwood mask Audio head unit.

A really rare, great driving manual DB7 in fantastic condition with excellent provenance.
