Aston Martin DB7 Vantage GT 21,000 miles £P.O.A
Exceptionally well cared for example of this rare and special model. Marketed by Aston Martin as “The Ultimate DB7” with improvements to the powertrain,
chassis, brakes and aerodynamics, the DB7 GT is not only the quickest “DB” ever but it also embodies all of the values of the classic Grand Tourer,
immense power, inspirational handling and all-enveloping luxury, providing one of the world’s most rewarding driving experiences.
DB7 GT benefits from even higher levels of power and torque. New engine mapping increased power to 435 bhp and torque to 410lb/ft, added to a change
in the final drive ratio, there is dramatically improved mid-range acceleration compared with the standard DB7 Vantage. A new exhaust system
incorporated V12 Vanquish style bypass valves.Improved braking performance consisting of grooved brake discs, uprated booster system again from V12
Vanquish, higher performance pads and improved brake cooling. Suspension improvements to complement the improved braking include uprated dampers,
a revised front sub-frame and stiffer bushes.
Inside, the GT has sports seats with extended shoulders and lateral bolsters as standard, special Parchment with black instrument dials and clock.Climate
controls, gearknob, pedal pads, and special sill plates are all in satin finish aluminium.
This particular example was first released from production on 31st March 2003 and registered on 9th April 2003 on an 03 plate.
Finished in non-standard Ferrari Nero Daytona (metallic black) with all charcoal leather, charcoal Wilton carpeting, GT black oak veneers, charcoal
Alcantara seat insert panels and headlining. Further fitted with upgrade Becker Cascade audio head unit and Becker Silverstone auto-changer.
Chiltern Aston Centre supplied this beautiful example to its fourth registered keeper in September 2006 and have serviced, MOT’d and cared for the car
ever since, the car having never missed a service during that time. This, along with its spectacular condition, was the reason in July 2016 the
current owner became the fifth keeper. From then on the car has only been used sparingly covering some 300 miles annually. Without exception
it is fair to say that all the owners have strived to maintain this vehicle’s amazing condition, with regular maintenance and servicing. The
car is a real credit to them and everyone who has worked on it.
It is believed that of the 190 GT cars built just 85 of these were built for the UK market, with some of these cars built are no longer existing and some
not being cared for as special cars should be, this really is a great collectors example that also drives as it should.
We, at Chiltern Aston, would welcome any enquiries on this special car.
