Full Description

1997 Aston Martin DB7 i6

Well maintained (with 31 service stamps!) supercharged 3.2 i6 coupe with sleek lines and well appointed interior - affordable Aston ownership

Supplied new by Paramount Motors Limited of Stourbridge in August 1997 this sleek Aston DB7 i6 features the Jaguar sourced 3.2 litre Supercharged AJ6 straight-six engine developing 335bhp and whopping 489Nm of torque giving the i6 DB7 a 0-60mph time of 6.4 seconds with the 4-speed auto ‘box and a top speed of 160mph.

Finished in dark green and sittting upon its original 12-spoke turbine alloy wheels with contrasting parchment hide interior piped green and matching green dash roll, door card tops and carpets the interior is, as with any Aston, a superb place to be. We also see walnut veneer, climate control with A/C, 4-speed automatic transmission, cruise control, cream suede headlining, electric heated seats and original radio cassette with boot mounted CD changer.

The car has covered 101,808 miles – the interior in remarkable order, the bodywork also very good bar a couple of small blemishes as pictured more than commensurate with its age and mileage. Starting promptly and moving about with ease while we took these shots, you’re reminded of what a beautiful, sleek and simple shape/design this original i6 DB7 is, undoubtedly one of Ian Callum’s best.

The car has been with our enthusiast owner for the last 6 years and 8,000 miles, delivering the car to us himself some 145miles without issue. A reluctant sale, he feels with such little recent use the car would be best enjoyed by someone who can give it more regular exercise.

The history file is impressive. In it, we find the V5C showing 9 previous owners, the owner’s pack and service book, with continuation booklet revealing some 31 service stamps inc. PDI, the last by Aston Martin Welwyn at 98,575 miles in May 2019 (current mileage 101,808).. 20 of the 31 service stamps have been by Aston Martin main dealers, or Aston Martin Heritage – most impressive for a 24 year old car.

In addition, we find a workshop manual CD, 8 old MOTs and a stack of invoices including a recent (unstamped) annual service by PanAuto Services at 101,652 miles in May 2021 at a cost of £265 and a host of annual service invoices as stamped including one in July 2016 costing £2,874. The current MOT is valid until May 2022 which recorded 4 advisories for faulty reversing lights, a leak to the oil cooler pipes, corrosion to the NSR closing sill and front brake imbalance.

A pretty car that’s had fortunes spent on it with an impressive service record – it looks enticing at the modest guide price and an awful lot of car for the money Mr Bond.
