Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Coupe (1999-2004)

Neoscore 82%

Product Overview

Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is the V12-powered DB7 that replaced the I6-powered models introduced in 1994. It was available with two different tunes of this engine and equipped with either 6-speed manual or 5-speed auto transmission.
One of the more elegant vehicles during its production run, the DB7 Vantage is clearly a variant of the Jaguar XJS, which used an V8 engine. Like the XJS, the DB7 has double-wishbone suspensions all around. Utility-minded owners will likely need to keep an alternative for hauling things around, as the tiny cargo space is almost surely insufficient.
