The DB7 was born in 1992 from the design of the Jaguar XJS and Jaguar F kind, which Ford, Aston Martin’s owners from , had beforehand shelved. The body of the DB7 was modestly restyled from the Jag, to ensure the unique Aston Martin lines were maintained. The automobile was initially in-built Kidlington, Oxfordshire by Tom Walkinshaw Racing, on contract to Aston Martin. While the sooner Virage V8 continued to be produced at Newport Pagnell, new premises were found at Bloxham, Oxfordshire, and the DB7 was produced there all through its production run.
A second automotive, built by Works Service, followed and had a yellow noseband. The DB7 was engineered in Kidlington, Oxfordshire, by TWR on behalf of Aston Martin. Due to the development of the Jaguar XJ220, Ford had not been very eager on growth of new Aston Martin fashions because of excessive development prices and the wake of the Nineteen Nineties financial downturn. Aston Martin CEO at the time, Walter Hayes approached Walkinshaw as he had seen the potential in Walkinshaw’s proposition to succeed. Ian Callum was again tasked to revamp the car so it would appear to be an Aston Martin.
The works was taken over by Bill Renwick and Bert Bertelli backed by a group of buyers, from then the agency was named Aston Martin. The automobiles from this era are called the ‘Bertelli’ Aston Martins Financial issues got here and went but new homeowners/buyers were discovered time and time once more. The Aston Martin Lagonda limited emerged from the agency Bamford & Martin which was founded by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford in 1913.

Introduced in 2003, the DB7 Zagato rekindled the connection between Aston Martin and Italian coachbuilder Zagato, which had started with the long-lasting DB4 GT Zagato in 1961. This very particular coupe was constructed as a strictly limited manufacturing run of only ninety nine vehicles and was only available in the UK, Europe and South East Asia. At the 1999 Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin presented an intensive facelift of the DB7, which, in addition to new bumpers, round fog lights and other mild optical retouching, was upgraded both technically and chassis-clever. Under the lengthy bonnet of the car christened DB7 Vantage was now a specially developed V12 engine with 5.9 liters capacity and 313 kW/426 hp.
The V8 engine was of such a wonderful design that is has been utilized in Aston Martin models till the year 2000! Between the years 1969 and 1973 all V8’s had been equipped with Bosch petrol injection. The prime of the road mannequin was again the ‘Vantage’ with 325 bhp engine.

DB7 Zagato used a 440bhp version of the DB7 GT engine coupled to the 6-Speed Manual discovered on the standard Vantage’s and GT’s. In addition to the brand new powertrain, the Vantage mannequin had more aggressive styling than the unique car, with an even bigger front grille, new fog/side/indicator lights and imposing 18” wheels shod in Bridgestone S02 tyres. The interior leather trim was reduce and sewn at a special trim shop at Newport Pagnell along with Wilton Carpet for the flooring and choice of wooden veneer or carbon fibre facia panels.
The DB7’s platform was an evolution of the Jaguar XJS’s, although with many modifications, apparently. Still, even the modifications wouldn’t detract from the truth that the platform was an evolution of a 20 Year Old Car. The styling started life as the still-born Jaguar F-Type (XJ41 – coupe / XJ42 – convertible, and don’t confuse it with the Modern-Day F-Type) designed by Keith Helfet. Ford cancelled this car and the overall design was then grafted onto an XJS platform. Why they did so, no one knows, but most likely as a result of they only wanted to cut costs wherever and in all places they might.
Added to this had been 100 each of the DB7 Vantage Zagato and DB AR1 in addition to 302 items of the DB7 GT and DB7 GTA . Ford had decided that the DB7 must be fitted with a supercharged inline six-cylinder engine based mostly on Jaguar’s AJ6 engine. When it was launched in the marketplace in 1994, this engine produced 250 kW/340 hp, which was transmitted to the rear axle either by way of a handbook 5-speed or an automatic 4-speed transmission. The Coupé version was joined by the open-high Volante from the end of 1995. Initially Aston Martin despatched the bodyshells to Rolls-Royce in Crewe for portray.
Unlike the later DB AR1, the Zagato is constructed on a shortened chassis that has a 60 mm shorter wheelbase and is 211 mm shorter overall. Jaguar had been struggling to replace the XJS as a result of its weak financial place. A project codenamed the XJ41/forty two (41 for the coupé, 42 for the convertible) was already in development stage within the firm, mooted to be referred to as the F-Type when accomplished and was designed by Keith Helfet. Seeing the potential of the abandoned project, Walkinshaw primarily based his concept on the XJ41 and tasked Ian Callum to design his envisioned physique across the XJ41. He presented the finished automotive to Jaguar’s administration who rejected it.
The six-cylinder DB7 was positioned as an “entry-stage” model under the hand-constructed V8 Virage launched a couple of years earlier. This model was the very best produced Aston Martin vehicle ever, with greater than 7,000 constructed earlier than it was replaced by the DB9 in 2004.
