1996 Aston Martin DB7 Manual | 480K HKD


Designed by Ian Callum, the beautiful Aston Martin DB7 was available as a coupé or convertible, and with a manual or an automatic gearbox.


Built in the same factory as the Jaguar XJ220, the DB7 is the only ‘modern’ Aston Martin to utilise a steel monocoque body. When the DB7 was first seen on British roads in 1994, it was, by common consent, the most beautiful car to come out of a British factory since the E-Type. DB7 emerged in the long shadows at the end of an era, when Aston Martin was presenting powerful misfits and oddities like the Virage to the world, and it pretty much saved the company.


Introduced initially with a supercharged 3.2 litre V6 supercharged engine loosely based on the Jaguar AJ6 unit, the i6, as it now known, was manufactured between 1994 and 1999. Developing a power output of 335 bhp and 361 lb⋅ft (489 Nm) of torque, the engine came with either a 5-speed manual, like this one we are offering, or 4-speed automatic gearbox. A Volante model was introduced in 1996, followed by the V12 Vantage in 1999 and GT/GTA variants in 2002.


While later variants may have got faster and fatter, with different bumpers and bodywork tweaks, the ’94-‘99 6 cylinder model is considered by purists to be the real Ian Callum design masterpiece. Clean and unfettered, svelte and muscular, it is undeniably a treat to behold from every angle.
