2000 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage

Jacob Boodrie
Professional Consigner

Arguably the ultimate British grand tourer, with racing heritage running deep through its veins.

The Aston Martin DB7 is a sophisticated grand tourer - the sleek and sexy body shape combined with a powerful V12 Vantage makes this car the complete package.

Aston Martin’s saving grace throughout the ’90s was without a doubt the DB7. With over 7,000 models produced for a reason, it was a hit and still is.

The V12 Vantage variant was first announced in 1999 at the Geneva motor show, with its 5.9L 48-valve V12, the Vantage offers so much power, 420bhp to be exact. Coupled to the ZF 5HP30 five-speed auto box, the car will hit its top speed of 165mph in no time at all, its 0-60 speed is 4.9 seconds. As well as a much larger engine the Vantage saw enhanced wing mirrors, large fog lamps, and new badging.

Kenneth came across this DB7, at the start of the year, and has enjoyed an incredibly hot summer with the car, traveling up and down to the coast on his weekends off. The car comes with a great amount of service stamps and history, just what any enthusiast would be on the search for.

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

Meet the owner

This is my first Aston Martin, and I can certainly see why people rave about the DB7 - it's so comfortable to cruise in with amazing performance when you want it.

Kenneth has enjoyed using the car over the summer to travel down to the south coast. He planned to keep the car for many summers to come, however after recently purchasing a bay window VW camper, his garage space is now occupied, and plans to use that for traveling next year.

Kenneth mentions he'll be sad to see it go, but it's time for a new owner. As the car is no longer getting much use, Kenneth is deciding to find it a new home and he'll be happy to answer any questions you may have about the car in the comments below.

Ask Questions



With years of refinement, the DB7 Vantage is a true masterpiece and is set to be a sound future investment too.

Wheels and Tyres

Rolling on 18" 10-spoke Aston Martin alloys, the wheels appear in great shape; they would just benefit from a deep detail. The wheels appear curb and mark-free except the nearside front wheel, and with some light refurbishment we think they'd look excellent.

The wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza dated 2012/13/16, and appear to have a good amount of tread left.


Elegant refined sweeping body lines are in abundance here. All the bodywork looks in great shape with all the panel gaps and shut lines looking tight and true, just as you would expect for a car of this caliber.

We did notice some very minor stone chips to the front of the car, a small crack in the bonnet, and some very minor bubbling starting to appear around the rear arches.

We have taken hi-resolution images and videos of the car for you to assess the condition of the bodywork for yourselves.


Finished a deep navy, the large grand tourer looks very classy and sophisticated on the roads today. The paint appears even in finish and colour across each panel.

After a good mop and polish, we think the paintwork would really come out, and look even better than it already does.

Again, the images taken are from different angles and reflections to show off the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. Please take the time to fully assess the condition.

Glass and Trim

The glass looks to be in great condition all around. The brightwork trim/rubber seals look good too and in line with the rest of the car.

Please view the images and videos of the glass to see in detail.


A luxurious hand-stitched interior offers comfort and padding to hold you tight around the corners.

Seats and Carpets

A full black leather interior is fitted, a timeless option that works so well. The seats in the front and back both look in great condition for the age and mileage of the car.

We did notice a piece of black trim is missing from the driver's seat back.

The carpets look great too, with a deep pile for a quality look and feel.

Please take a look at the ‘interior review’ video to see all the details.


Finished with white gauges and black dials, the instrument panel appears crisp and legible. All buttons are clean and Kenneth assures us they all function properly, as expected.

The wood veneer gives the interior a luxurious touch, we did notice some very small cracks in the veneer.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Sports touring focused steering wheel, draped in the finest black leather.

Both the steering wheel and veneer gear stick are in very good condition.


The Vantage is a highly sought-after DB7, with lots of power and torque to tap in to - this car is ready for its next major road trip.

Engine and Gearbox

The DB7 was given a massive power kick in 1999 with the 5.9L V12 Vantage, producing 420bhp and a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds.

Kenneth reports both the engine and gearbox are smooth in operation.

Please view the cold start video to see the car fire up the first time and take a closer look around the engine bay and see underneath the car.

Suspension and Brakes

Kenneth assures us that the car handles as you'd expect for an Aston Martin and also stops just as it should do too.

With the car having been regularly serviced throughout its life by main dealers and specialists, the suspension and brakes have always been tended to when needed e.g. brake fluid and safety checks.

The Drive

Don't be fooled by the dashing good looks and elegant body lines, this car moves quickly from the go, and handles extremely well too. A truly luxurious drivers-focused car.

Electrics and Other

As you would expect from a luxurious grand tourer, lots of buttons and controls at your disposal.

The car features an Alpine tape player which fits very nicely within the wood veneer dash.

All lights, buttons, and fully electric seats are working correctly on the car, reported from Kenneth.

History and Paperwork

A whole host of service stamps and lots of provenance comes with this attractive package - a sophisticated and sought-after Vantage.

The car comes well documented since delivery in 2000 - a nicely stamped service book by main dealers and specialists, you can rest assured that this car really has been looked after by Kenneth and the previous owners.

Kenneth reports fitting a new mesh grille and mentions the car comes with its weatherproof cover. The DB7 is currently on a private plate, which is not sold with the car, however, will be put back to its original registration of: 'W988 VJH'.

Kenneth will be happy to answer any of your questions about the DB7 in the comments below.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

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 hi-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.

Truly stunning. Mad how cheap people are letting these go for nowadays, the best looking car made to date & with a 6L v12 under the bonnet hand placed and wrenched on. If I had the money I’d take it! I’d take two.

Hi Kenneth, I checked the mot history on the car and wanted to find out if you have receipts for the items that were fixed under the Mot failures earlier in this year.

HiMuz, sorry I do not have receipts for the MOT work, as this was carried out prior to my purchase.
