Aston Martin DB7 Volante
The Aston Martin DB7 was produced and sold at a greater rate than any model in the company’s storied history, which spans nearly 100 years. The DB7 was available in both Coupe and open Volante form, both equipped with twin air bags, side-impact beams, full on-board diagnostic equipment and comprehensive luxury features as standard equipment.
The elegant, flowing lines of DB7 were the work of Scottish designer Ian Callum, who had earlier served as a Senior Designer with Ghia of Turin. The composite materials used for sections of the body and the on-board diagnostic equipment were developed in co-operation with Ford Advanced Vehicle Technology, and full use was made of Ford Research Centers and proving grounds in both Europe and the United States during the one-million-mile test program applied to the DB7.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2011 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.
