History, Development and General Characteristics

Aston Martin unveiled the DB7 at the 1993 Geneva Motor Show, although it wasn’t until September 1994 that this model entered production. The DB7 results from a suggestion that was made for Aston Martin to develop a smaller model to be sold alongside their usually large cars, so as for the brand to have a high selling car in the range.

The assembly was financially supported by Aston Martin’s holder company since 1988, American carmaker Ford, and the cars were mostly made out of Jaguar’s pieces and resources. When production ceased in 2003, more than 7 thousand DB7 units had been built, making this car become Aston Martin’s most produced model.

Engine and Transmission

The DB7 was available with either a 335 hp, 3.2-liter engine and a 6.0-liter V12 that produced 355 hp. The car could go up to a top speed of 165 mi/h (266 km/h) and perform 0–60 mi/h in just 5.8 seconds. The DB7 relies on a 5-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel drive system.
