Used Aston Martin DB7 For Sale
The car started life on a piece of paper by Ian Callum. It debuted at the Geneva Auto Show in 1992 and went on sale in 1994. The first Aston Martin DB7 for sale came with an inline-6 making 355 horsepower. In 1996, Aston Martin added the Volante, or convertible, which a tad more expensive and slightly slower, but sold well. In 1999, the car gained a 6.0-liter V-12 making 420 hp. That made the car capable of going zero-to-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 186 mph.
No matter what year you are searching for, all were praised and copied for their timeless beauty and classic lines. Considered one of the most beautiful cars ever created, Ian Callum gained celebrity status with what he did at Aston Martin. The car was produced from 1994 to 2003, during a time when Ford Motor Company owned the brand. The car was a huge success and more than 7,000 were built before it was replaced with the DB9. After the launch of V-12 Vantage in 1999, sales of the V-8-powered car shriveled and it was discontinued.
In 2002, a special edition, called the V12 GT, was created. The V-12’s horsepower was pushed up to 435 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. It can be easily spotted due to its mesh grille, rear spoiler, new wheels, and carbon fiber trim. A variety of other special editions were produced. These cars had basic, cosmetic changes.
By far the most memorable edition was the Zagato. All 99 examples quickly sold out when it was released in 2002. At its' heart, the $225,000 Vantage Zagato was a Vantage with more elaborate body work and a shortened chassis.
Used Aston Martin Vanquish For Sale
Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in 1998, the Aston Martin Vanquish for sale represented the next step in the marque’s lineup of V12 powered grand touring coupes. Put into production in 2001, the car housed a 5.9-liter V12 that produced 450 hp. Reaching 60 mph from a stand still in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph, the car packed the luxury and speed it promised in James Bond’s Die Another Day and other screen appearances.
In 2004, the S became available, capable of a higher top speed of 199 mph due to its improved aerodynamics and other minor weight cutting alterations. Production of the line temporarily ended July 19, 2007 with the planned closing of the brand’s Newport Pagnell production facility.
In 2012, a new generation emerged, much changed from its predecessor and featuring several design cues from the exclusive One-77. The new car rode on a lighter aluminum and carbon composite monocoque and aluminum subframe, improving weight and performance. In addition to these structural changes, the V12 retained its displacement but increased its output to 565 hp. Aesthetically, the new car features a derivative of the classic grille, with a more streamlined profile approach than its predecessor.
In 2013, the car became available in a convertible option as the Volante. Slightly slower by .2 seconds to 60 mph in the 2014 model and heavier due to its additional structural reinforcement to compensate for its open top, the Volante provides a refined open-top grand touring experience for drivers and passengers.
