The Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is a rear wheel drive 5.9L naturally aspirated V12 GT, managing to merge both comfort and performance in an elegantly designed package.

The DB7 was first launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1993 and was designed by Ian Callum. Production began in 1994 at a new Aston Martin factory in Oxfordshire where it was engineered alongside TWR group who built the new supercharged six-cylinder engine, however in 1999 a new V12 engine was unveiled.

The Vantage was fitted with a new front grille, side, fog and indicator lights, along with 18" alloys. This example from the year 2000 comes finished in Aysgarth Blue paintwork and cream leather interior with wood veneer dashboard.

This example comes to us from owner David who has owned the vehicle for little over one year and has only ~45,200 miles on the clock - sadly it was written off after a front end collision that has now been repaired.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Isaac after meeting David the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

It's a fantastic looking car and definitely feels more akin to a sports car than a GT car in the way that it drives.

David is a bit of a petrolhead, with a driveway full of cars and at least one project on the go at any given moment, so when the opportunity came up to buy this DB7 in need of some work he jumped and took the deal on the table. After getting the car home he had some work to do in the engine bay and proceeded to rectify some of the remaining problems following its post-write off repair work.

After owning the car for little over a year David has decided to sell the car to free up some time, space, and money for a new car.

Any questions you may have David will be happy to answer in the comments below.

Sir Ian Callum managed to create a beautiful silhouette with the DB7, it's sleek and illustrious design still turns heads nearly three decades after its inception.

Wheels and Tyres

The 18" alloy wheels look to be in good condition on the whole, with no obvious signs of any issues, and no visible corrosion present either.

The wheels are fitted with a mixed range of tyres, all with average tread however none of the tyres look to be damaged or perished.


Whilst the panels themselves are on the whole free of any major damage, there are some obvious fitment issues around the front bumper with uneven panel gaps, and the front bumper does suffer from a crack just below the drivers front headlight, this is captured in our gallery below.

We've highlighted in more detail our observations through our high resolution images and videos, so please take time to look through all the media files for a detailed view at what’s on offer, and for you to assess the condition of the car for yourselves.


The Mendip Blue is a fantastic colour however it could do with some TLC. There are several chips on the front end, including some roughness to the front lip of the bonnet - presumably relating to any repairs following the accident.

There are several light marks around the car that could be rectified in the hands of a skilled detailer, however in the case of the bonnet and chips to the front end then perhaps a respray would be required.

Again, we have taken high resolution images and videos of the car for you to assess the condition of the bodywork for yourselves. The images are taken from a few different angles to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. So please take the time to fully assess these high resolution images and videos of the car, for you to make up your own minds about the condition of the paint.

Glass and Trim

The glass itself appears to be in good condition, with no obvious damage to any of the panes on the vehicle and all surrounding trims and seals look to be undamaged and in good condition also.


With its two tone blue and cream interior the DB7 lavishes its occupants with comfort and luxury materials in every direction.

Seats and Carpets

The leather seats are appropriately aged for a car of this age and would really benefit from a deep clean and feed, however the leather itself is undamaged and free from splits or tears. There is a slight patina on the drivers seat bolste,r but again nothing unexpected for leather of this age.

Unfortunately the folding mechanisms for both front seats appear to have seized, as on the day we could not get either seat to fold forward - the drivers seat is missing the exterior mechanism completely. The forward/backward electronic seat adjustment does still work however.

The carpets are a matching blue and look to be, on the whole, in good condition. As with the leather, the carpets could again do with a good clean to bring back the vibrancy of the colour but do not appear to suffer from any major damage.

It is worth noting at this point that there was no boot floor present with the car on the day of our visit and whilst David tells us he will look for this we are currently working on an 'as is' basis unless informed otherwise by the owner.


The dashboard is in good condition on the whole, with the leather being free from any major damage and the wood veneer being free from any delamination - a common problem on these types of dashboard.

Sadly the original stereo is missing and there is no replacement present meaning the wiring behind is exposed and visible.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel looks to be in good condition overall, with no damage to the leather or stitching. We do know that the airbag was deployed during the collision however there is no evidence of this when looking at the steering wheel.

The gearstick is in similar condition to the wheel with no evidence of any major damage or wear present.


The DB7's naturally aspirated V12 provides plenty of power and the roar from the exhaust never fails to remind you of the power beneath your feet.

Engine and Gearbox

With the car having been involved in a front end accident there has been some work carried out on the engine bay, both by the insurance auction salvage company and by the owner David. We are unsure of any works carried out prior to David's ownership however he tells us that when he got the car all engine mounts needed to be replaced amongst other things.

During our 'On The Road' video you can see the engine start from semi-cold (the car had been driven that morning) without issue, as well as see it driven out on the road where it performed well.

Suspension and Brakes

The suspension and brakes are the original items so far as we are aware and both seem to be in expected condition for the age and mileage, with the discs and pads appearing to have a good amount of material left on them and the suspension not clunking or knocking during bumps.

The Drive

Obviously with a V12 naturally aspirated engine under the bonnet, the DB7 can move and it can move pretty quickly with 0-60 times under 5s. However it also maintains a sense of elegance during day to day driving, allowing it a practicality not found in some sports cars.

David tells us a little about his experience driving the car during the 'On The Road' video above.

Electrics and Other

As mentioned earlier in the listing the factory stereo unit has been removed and no replacement has been installed, meaning there is sadly a gap where the stereo should be.

History and Paperwork

A low mileage car in a wonderful colour combination that, with a little love, could once again be a grand example of the renowned V12 GT car that we all know it to be.

This car comes to us with ~45,200 miles and a recent service. The car is registered Cat C following a front end collision that caused airbag deployment. The car is painted in Mendip Blue and benefits from cream and blue leather interior.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle - Category C insurance marker recorded in July 2014.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in high resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.
