Car Description

It is the first Aston Martin to be produeced in Bloxham, Oxfordshire. Y'know the Jag XJ220 production was there... Powered by an in-line 6-cylinder 3.2 litre supercharged 335 HP (250 kW) engine, the DB7 has a maximum speed in excess of 160 mph (260 kph).

Dimensions: l/w/h: 4631/ 1820/ 1268 mm. Wheelbase: 2591 mm. Front/ rear track: 1524/ 1530 mm. Weight: 1650 kg. Torque: 490 Nm @ 3000 rpm. The factory claimed a 0-100 kph performance of 5.7 sec. Other details could be found in numerous articles... In 1996 the line-up was combined with a convertible version, mainly destined for the US market:

Like the coupe, the DB7 Volante's styling is the work of TWR design chief Ian Callum. He said although he knew about a plan about the open version, but while he figured out the shape of the DB7 coupe he focused on the closed version only.It worked: the transition from fixed-head to droph-head looks straightforward. Park the two cars side by side, however and the differences will be noticeable: every panel aft of the B-pillar has been re-sculpted, the fuel filler has moved from C-pillar to wing top and the bootlid is much longer and flatter.

To pass the tough US safety requirements the rear bumper had to be extended by 78 mm. The soft-top and retractable rear windows are making the two rear seats useless. Otherwise the cabin looks the same.

Under the bonnet the Volante has the same supercharged, 3.2-litre straight six as the coupe with 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox. The Bridgestones tires have been specially designed to the DB7.

In June, 1997 Dunhill and Aston teamed up and built a very special DB7 with cigar-holders around.
