Single Ownership from New with Factory Custom Features

As Aston Martin approached the 21st century, the DB7 became its most successful model to date, with more than 7,000 examples being built over its 11-year production run. In 1999, a six-litre V-12 engine was added and the Vantage model offered a six-speed gearbox and an impressive 184 mph top speed.

This special DB7 Vantage was custom built for the consignor, incorporating numerous bespoke features, totaling some £31,000 as a factory one-off. A “Works Prepared” badge in the grille distinguishes the special coupe as a factory creation. The DB7 was ordered in 1964 Works Racing Green without a rear seat and with Rolls-Royce rocker switches, exposed fuel filler, and a factory-installed Nakamichi stereo system. The bespoke taillamp treatment recalls the aggressive design of the limited-production V8 Vantage V600 of the 1990s, and the special rear valance incorporates reverse and rear fog lights. A deck spoiler and rear window wiper further set this DB7 apart.

The Aston Martin’s interior is beautifully finished in bold shades of Cognac and British Racing Green leather with green wool carpets. The natural suede-finish headliner and burl wood dash complete the custom feel of the DB7’s unique interior. Enjoyed by the consignor for over 64,000 miles, this DB7 presents as a rare and unique factory custom, which can easily double as an executive’s high-speed mobile office.
