Aston Martin DB7: Buying guide and review (1994-2003)

Aston Martin DB7: Buying guide and review (1994-2003) Classic and Performance Car
Aston Martin DB7 side profile Aston Martin DB7 interior Aston Martin DB7 engine The Aston Martin DB7 is a car to polarise opinions. Devotees will tell you that it was the first Aston truly dependable enough to be driven every day, the first you could leave out in the street and be sure it would function in the morning as, say, a Porsche would. It was also the first Aston built with modern high(ish)-volume methods to proper, consistent quality standards, and it sowed the seed of the company Aston Martin has since become.

Today a DB7 can seem almost irresistibly cheap for a car with those looks and that badge, never mind the pace potential. You can buy one for as little as £16,000. So how can you lose?

A powerful part of its appeal 19 years after launch is that it was the car that saved the company. So, how did the DB7 come to be? Aston Martin had been floundering after the Victor Gauntlett era, as it had so often before, and this particular new dawn involved the Ford Motor Company, which already owned Jaguar. Ford needed the venerable Aston brand to pay its way and forge a future.

This called for a cheaper model able to be built in greater numbers, and a rummage through the corporate cupboard uncovered just the starting point – an abandoned proposal for a Jaguar XJS replacement. Designer Ian Callum reworked the ingredients into a svelte and credible Aston Martin shape.

Under the bonnet was an AJ16 Jaguar straight-six engine, which gained an Eaton supercharger to help extract 335bhp from the 3.2-litre capacity, and while the XJS-derived platform was clearly dated, having first appeared 19 years before the DB7’s 1994 launch, it did the job.

Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) carried out the development and ran the factory at Bloxham, Oxfordshire where the DB7 would be built, having just finished producing Jaguar XJ220s. The DB7 was also the first (and last) Aston Martin with a steel monococque structure, although it did add some newer bodywork technology with its heat-pressed composite front wings and bootlid. Early cars had composite bonnets, too, but the panel gaps proved both inconsistent and heat-relatedly mobile, so later cars had a steel panel.

So there’s not as much bespoke Aston Martin in a DB7 as a purist might like. The ‘Jag in drag’ references of the time are a bit harsh, though, because even the Jaguar-derived parts had Aston-specific calibration and development, and a DB7 looks like a proper Aston both outside and in.

It’s better to think of the DB7 as a new beginning, as the starting point for today’s company with its Gaydon factory and the V12 engine, which began life in 1999’s DB7 Vantage.

Which one to buy?

The DB7 was made in bigger numbers than any Aston before it, with 2451 six-cylinder cars leaving the factory before the V12 replaced them and took production to its 2003 end. In total, 7091 DB7s were built, including Volante convertibles. Today’s Aston production rate, however, far eclipses those figures.

Now that the DB7 is coming out of its wilderness years, this means that really good ones can be worth more than commonplace early DB9s and V8 Vantages.

Because a DB7 is more exclusive than the Jag XK8 rival, it looks sleeker and, perversely, its imperfections now take on the aura of a classic car’s character. Besides which, a six-cylinder one handles beautifully and goes with great verve, although the more common (75 per cent of production) four-speed automatic with the engine detuned to 317bhp might not be a petrolhead's cup of Earl Grey and is worth around 20 per cent less.

Or there’s the V12, initially with 420bhp, later with 435 as the Vantage GT; it’s very quick and sounds wonderful, the GT especially covetable with its mesh grille, bonnet vents, shorter gearing, uprated brakes and keener handling. Manuals are more common with this engine at around 40 per cent of production. Although early cars were never the the most accomplished drivers' cars, the last-of-the-line Vantage GT is a much improved proposition – something that is reflected in the price. 
 
The Aston Martin DB7 was also the basis for a couple of special Zagato-bodied cars. Just 99 standard coupe versions were built, as well as 99 AR1 models. AR1 actually stands for America Roadster 1, due to being exclusively offered in the USA, although obviously a handful made it to other countries.

Common problems

• A full and detailed service history is a very nice thing to have, because infrequent oil changes can clog the hydraulic timing-chain tensioner in the otherwise very durable straight-six. The rattly chain that will eventually develop is pricy to replace. 
 
• The V12 is also a very reliable engine on the whole, and it was the first appearance of an engine that has remained in production to this very day. There are a couple of things to look out for though, one of which is the engine's occasional habit of breaking down one of the 12 individual coil packs. This is generally due to heat and age, causing misfires. It's often easy to miss on a test drive, as even on 11 cylinders the Aston Martin remains smooth and refined. As they are hard to get at, replacement can be expensive – so proof of recent replacement  (of all 12) by a specialist, although generally not always necessary is always a bonus.
 
• Have a good look underneath, where rust can take hold – more likely in a V12, oddly, because cost-cutting led to less protection. Front floorpans, inner wings and suspension turrets, rear radius-arm mountings and rear chassis legs are the trouble spots. Getting the car on a ramp is the best way to see everything, and it will pay in the long run to get a car with no structural issues.
 
• Although much easier to spot, you should also be on the look out for the beginnings of rust on the the wheelarches and door bottoms. Another possible area for concern is the bottom corner of the rear window aperture, which can make an otherwise nice example look scruffy.
 
• Look in the service history for checks of the suspension’s fully adjustable alignment, too; the tyres wear quickly if it’s out, while the car will not feel planted on the road. 

• You’re unlikely to find an original composite bonnet on an early car because most have been replaced with a steel one. As well as the gap problems, a composite panel goes porous if its outer layer is perforated and bubbles duly appear.

• The six-cylinder DB7’s boot-mounted badge can trigger this, which is why the V12 doesn’t have one.

• On the steel panels, rear wheelarch lips and the bottom corners of the rear window aperture are worth a close check.

• The sumptuous interior is durable and high in quality, but try the air-con because blockages can blow the evaporator apart if the car isn’t used regularly. Fixing this involves removing most of the interior.

• Damp carpets could be from a failed windscreen-to-scuttle seal.

Summary and prices

‘Any six-cylinder DB7 worth having will start at around £25,000,’ cautions Derek Campbell, MD of the Chiltern Aston Centre (www.chilternaston.co.uk). ‘Any less than this and you must have it inspected thoroughly. Provenance and how it has been looked after are vital. And low-mileage, manual cars are worth the most.’

At the other end of the scale, late Vantages can nudge £50,000, especially if it’s the open Volante version or the final, limited-run GT. And if you find one of the 99 Zagato-bodied versions, you'll encounter a price tag far into six figures.

  • 214 - 1999 Land Rover Defender 110 Td5

    POA POA

    The Land Rover Defender was launched in 1948 and, incredibly, production only finished in January 2016 after a continuous run of 67 years. Outwardly, there is little to distinguish the post-1983 vehicles from the Series III Land Rover. Internally, coil springs offered a more comfortable ride and a permanent four-wheel drive system derived from the Range Rover featuring a two-speed transfer gearbox with a lockable centre differential. A modernised interior and a new series of progressively more powerful and modern engine characterised things under the skin. The Tdi engine finally allowed the Defender to cruise comfortably at high speeds, as well as tow heavy loads speedily on hills while still being economical. In 1998, the Defender was fitted with an all-new 2.5-litre, five-cylinder in-line turbo/diesel engine, badged the Td5. This example represents one of the many variants of body configuration, that of the hardtop. That is to say, a rigid-sided, long-wheelbase model. There is much to commend this fine example; it has one owner from new and has been fully restored over the last 18 months. It benefits from a new body with panel seals, is freshly painted and has a reconditioned eng

    POA POA

    TVR was an independent British manufacturer of sports cars and until 2006 was based in the seaside town of Blackpool. The company manufactured lightweight sports cars with powerful engines and was, at one stage, the third largest specialised sports car manufacturer in the world offering a diverse range of coupés and convertibles. TVR's are composed of tubular steel frames, cloaked in fibreglass bodywork. The two arms of the company were TVR Engineering, which manufactured sports cars, and TVR Power, their powertrain division. The company has, regrettably, had a turbulent recent history and had not made any new cars since 2006. In July 2012, owner Nikolay Smolensky announced that, despite analysing various potential plans to create a new car, building a new TVR model was not going to be financially viable - despite promising to do so when buying the company - and thus TVR's existence as a car manufacturer was brought to an end. The Chimera was intended to be the long distance tourer of the range and as such was longer, more spacious and had slightly softer suspension than its sister car. Originally registered on 17th September 1999 this TVR is finished in the desirable colour combin

    The Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960's and its space-saving front-wheel drive layout allowing 80% of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage, influenced a generation of car makers. In 1999, the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century behind the Ford Model T. Initially, Minis were marketed under the Austin and Morris names until Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969. The Mini was again marketed under the Austin name in the 1980's and was offered in a number of limited editions that usually included a special combination of trim and badging. This Mini Cooper was originally registered on 28 th July, 1999 and has only covered 28,752 miles from new. However the first owner won a competition for the car to be sent to John Cooper Works in West Sussex for the car to be upgraded to a 90bhp example and included changing the cylinder head which is now stamped and numbered by John Cooper Works.

The DB7's platform is an evolution of the Jaguar XJS's; although with many changes. First registered on 1st June 1996 and presented in Mendip Blue with Grey Hide piped in Blue and contrasting Blue Dashboard Top-roll and door Cards this particular example which is in truly fine condition throughout was supplied by us to its last owner in May 2011 with 57,000 miles recorded.

Stratstone Aston Martin of Wilmslow Cheshire serviced this car six times to 49,000 miles in 2004. We serviced the car at 57,000 miles and will do so again prior to delivery to its next owner. It is widely accepted among Classic Car commentators that the DB7 family of cars are likely to rise in value over the coming years, the shortage of supply of these cars now compared with 12 months ago is underpinning this forecast; they will not be this affordable much longer.

    POA POA

    The Z3 was the first modern mass-market roadster produced by BMW as well as the first new BMW model to be assembled in the United States. It was introduced as a 1996 model year vehicle, shortly after being featured in the James Bond movie 'Goldeneye'. While the film was number one at the box office, sales of the car peaked and it was sold out by the time the car was launched. The Z3 was designed by Joji Nagashima of the BMW design team and developed from the E36 platform of the 3-Series. The resulting platform is often referred to as the E36/7(roadster) or E36/8(coupé). When launched, only the 1.9 litre straight four engine was offered, but its 138bhp was not up to expectations. A 2.2 litre engine producing 168bhp was made available for the more enthusiastic driver and in 1997 a powerful six cylinder 2.8 litre engine producing 190bhp was an option, in 1998 the Z3M had a 3.2 litre engine offering more power. It is this 3.2 litre, the most powerful of engine options available here today. Presented in striking Arctic white with a blue and black leather interior, the interior luxuries include electric and heated sports seats, heated door mirrors and air-conditioning. It also comes with

  • 303 - 1999 Bentley Continental R by Mulliner Park Ward *WITHDRAWN*

    POA POA

    From its motor car production in 1921, the Bentley name has remained synonymous with prestige, performance and luxury. The 'Continental' designation recalls the Bentley Continental of the post-war period. The 'R' was meant to recall the R-Type Bentleys from the 1950s as well as the Turbo R of the 1980s. This series boasts the most powerful engine after the Continental T and has a power output of 420bhp and a maximum torque of 650 ft-lb. The car could be pushed to a staggering top speed of some 170mph. Bentley's 1980s resurgence relied exclusively on models whose basic architecture was shared with other Rolls-Royce models however; the Bentley Continental R was unique to the Bentley marque. Despite the need to incorporate non-traditional features such as doors recessed into the roof, the result looked every bit a Bentley, albeit one re-stated for the 1990s and beyond. This wide-bodied Continental R is finished in Silver Tempest with St. James interior and could only be described as a superb vehicle in every aspect. The coachwork shows no sign of any blemishes and the interior is in superb order, the leather being complimented by black carpets and top roll, the walnut dashboard adding

  • 321 - 1999 Ferrari 355 F1 Spider

    POA POA

    The Ferrari F355 was launched in May 1994 with two models available: the coupé Berlinetta and the Targa Top GTS. The Spider became available in 1995 whilst in 1997 the Formula 1-style paddle gear shift was introduced with the Ferrari 355 F1, the F designation being dropped before the 355 which added a further £6,000 to the dealer list price. Apart from the displacement increase from 3.4 to 3.5 litres, the major difference between the V8 engine in the 348 and F355 is the introduction of a five-valve cylinder head. This new head design allowed for better intake permeability and resulted in an engine that was considerably more powerful, The F355 was the last in the series of mid-engined Ferraris with the Flying Buttress rear window, a lineage going back to the 1965 Dino 206GT. Total production of 11,273 units made the F355 the most-produced Ferrari at the time. We are delighted to offer this lefthand drive Ferrari F1 Spider that was imported into the UK from the Principality of Monaco in 2015. The F1 Spider presents itself very well in Giallo Fly with a contrasting black leather interior and is a late 1999 model that benefits from the later engine and paddle shift gear change. Ferrari

  • 213 - 1999 Fiat Barchetta

    POA POA

    Fiat's Barchetta (Italian for 'little boat') was developed between 1990 and 1994 under project name 'Tipo B Spider 176' and culminating in a two door roadster with deft and distinctive styling flare. Powered by the well proven and lively 1.7 litre, four-cylinder, 16v engine, the Barchetta was good for 130bhp and 124mph. Whilst being no slouch, the Barchetta exhaust boasts a pleasing rasp and the driving experience gives the sensation that the car is even faster than it really is. Sold only in lefthand drive, manufacturing ceased by Maggiora in May 2002 and Fiat resurrected the Barchetta with a Phase Two model during 2004 built at its Mirafiori plant in Turin before ending production soon after in June 2005. Presented in near unmarked silver coachwork with black leather, this lovely Barchetta has been cherished throughout its life. Sold by DTR Sports to a Mr. Godfrey in July 1999 and with the original sales invoice in the history file, this example has had just three further owners from new. The history file includes details of service schedules and, importantly, the dates of the major services which can be substantiated by the comprehensively stamped service booklet. Having been ga

  • 134 - 1999 TVR CERBERA

    POA POA

    The TVR name is derived from 'Cerberus', the three-headed beast of Greek legend that guarded the entrance of Hades. The car itself was designed from the start as a four-seater, however, the interior is designed so that the passenger seat can slide farther forward than the driver's seat. This allows more room for the person sitting behind the front passenger. TVR have referred to this as a '3+1' design. Like all TVRs of the Peter Wheeler era, the Cerbera had a long-travel throttle to compensate for the lack of electronic traction-control and very sharp steering. Prior to the Cerbera, TVR had purchased V8 engines from Rover and then tuned them for their own use. When Rover was purchased by BMW, the chairman of TVR, Peter Wheeler, didn't want to risk problems should the Germans decide to stop manufacturing the engine. In response, he engaged the services of race engineer, Al Melling, to design a V8 engine that TVR could manufacture in-house and even potentially offer for sale to other car-makers. In an interview for the television programme Top Gear, Wheeler explained, 'Basically, we designed the engine as a race engine. It was my idea at the time that if we wanted to expand, we ought
