Rev the engine, delight in the deep rumbling exhaust note and imagine you are James Bond in this beautiful silver sports coupé. The view over the bonnet is awe-inspiring and the supercharged engine has instant urge. Inside the Aston is finished in dark grey hand sewn Connolly leather and burr walnut trim. It is a British built luxury sports car that shouts class and prestige. You’ll turn quite a few envious heads.

Being well equipped with modern technology including power steering and servo assisted brakes it is smooth and easy to drive, and the handling inspires confidence. There’s reasonable room for two inside, although the back seats are only really suitable for children.

Our DB7 has the 3,200 supercharged six cylinder engine. Being one of only around 750 of the supercharged cars to have a 5 speed manual gearbox, it is a particularly desirable example. Drive an Aston Martin DB7 and you’ll enjoy its low-rev flexibility and progressive build up of power. And all the time you’re accompanied by the exhaust note, which just has to be one of the best ever!

 

History of the Aston Martin DB7

The Aston Martin DB7 was produced from September 1994 to December 2004, financed by Ford (which owned Aston Martin at the time). It was developed in partnership with Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and assembled at the TWR Bloxham plant in Oxfordshire. Many racing sports cars such as the Jaguar XJ220 were built at the Bloxham plant. Tom Walkinshaw passed away in 2010 and today Astons are prepared by Prodrive for national and international race series including An British GT and Le Mans.

The DB7 continued Aston Martin’s heritage for building beautiful cars. It shares many of the features of its famous grand touring car predecessors from the DB4, launched in 1958, to the DB6 which finished production in 1971. This is especially true of the distinctive grille and muscular rear wings.

When unveiled at the Geneva Motorshow in 1993 the car received a rapturous press reaction for its styling, the work of British car designer Ian Callum. Described as a ‘gentleman’s club on wheels’, the car was a class act which secured Aston’s future after years of uncertainty. By the early 1990s only a handful of cars had been trickling out of the factory gates. The DB7 changed all that, with over 2,400 six-cylinder cars sold – a company record.

Our Aston Martin hire car is one of a long line of models produced from 1914 onwards. To see more about Aston Martin models of the past visit their Heritage site.
