Description

ASTON MARTIN DB7 ALFRED DUNHILL 1999
DB7 had worldwide appeal and set new standards of power, refinement and reliability for handmade luxury sports cars.

History :
The new design, code named NPX, was styled by Ian Callum and engineered in conjunction with Tom Walkinshaws TWR group. Aston Martin revealed the DB7 at the Geneva Motorshow in 1993, with production starting in 1994 at a new factory in Bloxham, near Banbury in Oxfordshire.
A 1998 model year car with twin airbags and the later seat bases, this car was built new to the Alfred Dunhill specification as tailor -made Edition that remain the timeless values Flair ,Individualy,Craftsmanship , Engineering integrity and genuine passion for performance .

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. The traditional walnut veneers were replaced with a brushed aluminium finish, complementing the special edition clock based on the Millennium Dunhill watch. The charcoal carpets were also edged in silver grey leather and special vehicle instruments to match the clock face were fitted. Externally the Dunhill DB7 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 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 which has been well cared for by its previous custodians - only four owners from new - and having covered just over 43,000 km in total (with a documented speedo charge). This example 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 maintenace in service book, . This car also retains its original unique brushed aluminium Kenwood mask Audio head unit.

A stunningly rare, great driving manual DB7 in pristine condition .
