This Aston Martin DB7 Won’t Invoke Your Inner James Bond, But It’s Cool Anyway

This more-than-two-decades-old coupe shows how value depreciation shows no mercy

Aston Martin’s DB7 Vantage was introduced in 1999, at the Geneva Motor Show, to bring a more aggressive and powerful DB7 to the market. The British luxury automaker was a part of Ford, which was the owner of Jaguar as well. So cross-pollination between the DB7 and the XK8 was seen, but unlike the Vantage, the Jag had a V-8 under the hood. In addition, the Vantage introduced a more robust 5.9-liter V-12, a sportier exterior aesthetics, and the suspension was firmed up to enhance the driving dynamics. And when all of these are taken into account after two decades, the price of this magnificent British coupe has come down and is the same as a brand-new Chevy Spark. So an example of the DB7 Vantage is being auctioned as we are writing, and it might be an amazing deal.

The Vantage Point - The Evolution of Aston Martin's Attainable Super Coupe

The Vantage Point - The Evolution of Aston Martin’s Attainable Super Coupe

The Vantage name has a long, storied, history, but there’s more to it than you might think

The Vantage moniker was nothing more than a suffix reserved for the fastest version of a given model’s lineup. The first use of the Vantage name was seen with the DB2 from the 1950s. Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. Under David Brown’s ownership saw the release of only 250 units of the DB2 Vantage, all featuring a 2.6-liter Lagonda straight-6 engine, which makes them one of the rarest series production Aston Martins from the period.

After the DB2, the Vantage nameplate was retired until it resurfaced eleven years later with the Series IV DB4 Vantage in 1961. The DB4 Vantage received the same treatment with a distinct design but the key ingredient was the engine upgrades which included three SU HD8 carburetors, along with revised cylinder heads with bigger valves and a higher compression ratio. The technical modifications gave it a 10 percent increase over a stock DB4. From a design perspective, this generation and its successor the DB5 are considered to be the finest of Aston’s designs.

A New Prototype Suggests Aston Martin Is Doing Unthinkable Things to the Vantage

An aggressive-looking Test Mule suggests Aston Martin is shoving their Twin-Turbo V-12 into the Vantage

Aston Martin is one of the more enigmatic brands that we occasionally remember is up to something. That said, the British brand, like others, has a certain pattern in which it does things. When the previous-generation Vantage came out, it was equipped with a 4.3-liter V-8. It later grew to a 4.7-liter, but performance was still "meh" compared to some Ferrari or Porsche offerings. That said, in 2009, the entry-level Aston Martin got a V-12. Now, it seems Aston Martin is about to do the same thing to the current Vantage.
