Aston Martin DB7 Vantage V12

Aston Martin introduced a high performance version of its popular DB7 in 1999, the DB7 Vantage. For many years (since the DB2 in 1950) Aston has always offered a "Vantage" version of its standard car usually offering improved performance and handling.

The DB7 was subtlety restyled into Vantage form by designer Ian Callum and features a new grille, bumpers, larger wheels (wider at the back) and a revised interior. The original 3.2 litre supercharged six has been replaced by a 6.0 litre, 420bhp V12, built for Aston by Cosworth. Transmission choices included standard 6 speed manual, 5 speed auto or an optional 5 speed "Touchtronic" auto box.

Performance for the DB7 Vantage is limited to 165mph in auto and Touchtronic form, the manual is capable of 185mph. Aston Martin build around 1,000 DB7 Vantages a year at its Bloxham assembly plant in Oxfordshire, around 55% of these are Coupes
