Description

Supplied new by Paramount Cars in Stourbridge inFebruary 1999. Fourformer keepers and 57,000 milesDelightfulcolour combination of Cannock Black, Ivory hide piped in Claret and Claret carpetsAll-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six with335bhp at 5750rpmComprehensive service history with 16 stamps. Most recent inSeptember 2019Sensibly guided with a fresh MOT and a new soft top, this lovely Aston is now ready to enjoyIntroduced to an astonished public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin's first six-cylinder model since the production of the DBS had finished in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen if you looked carefully. Arguably, one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the '7' was more approachable than the leviathans that had immediately preceded it. Well received, it attracted new customers worldwide, with the traditional layout of the curvaceous two-door coup body, robust six-cylinder engine and a 'proper' interior. Power was supplied by an all-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six-cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. In the same way that the beautiful little SixtiesLotus Elan morphed, over the years, into the be-winged Esprit Turbo, the DB7 was the first in the line of modern Astons that have become more dramatic with each new model, however, we feel that the simple purity of line of the DB7, will ultimately define the breed.This lovely example was initially supplied by Paramount Cars in Stourbridge on the 23rd of February to the first of four owners who have between them covered 57,000 miles. The Aston presents superbly in Cannock Black with lovely Ivory coloured hide, piped in Claret and matching Claret carpetsand the whole car is set off by gleaming alloys and a brand new black hood.The fact that it has been well cared for is obvious from the car's wonderful condition but can becorroborated by the detailed service history with 16 stamps in the Service Record. The most recent service was duringSeptember 2019 and the MOT is valid until early October 2020.DB7s are the quintessential British Sports Cars of the late nineties. Their values plateaued for a while, however, that is no longer the case with really good cars catching up and surpassing early DB9s. Don't miss the boat.
