Twenty five years on from the DB6, Ian Callum designed the DB7 to encompass all the unmistakable DB styling cues. Special attention was paid to the ride to make this a true everyday car. Commonly known as the i6, it was powered by a 155mph, all-aluminium, 3.2-litre supercharged 24-valve straight six engine with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. Originally available in Coupe, the Volante was launched in 1996. Visually, the car has less flare on the arches and the mirrors are door mounted.
The DB7 received engineering enhancements in 1999, with the introduction of the DB7 Vantage being the first Aston Martin to use a V12 engine. The 48-valve, V12, 420bhp Vantage includes restyled dash and centre console with manual, auto and Touchtronic gearshift options.
The manual Coupe achieves 184mph, while the automatic Volante is capable of 165mph. The most significant visual change was the combined fog/indicator lamps and the wider grille. Ten-spoke 18” wheels were fitted as standard, with optional five and ten-spoke alloy wheels available, and a nine-spoke 19” aftermarket design also introduced. Door mirrors moved from the door to the cheater panels.
