For some Aston Martin customers, even a Vantage engine just doesn’t quite do the job. Demand for a higher-performance DB7 was enough that the marque produced the DB7 GT, crafted for those drivers who wanted more power, increased handling, and an overall greater driving experience.

For a premium over the DB7 Vantage, customers received a car loaded with improvements to the power train, chassis, brakes, and aerodynamics. Fitted with the Vantage V-12 all-aluminum engine, further development had increased power to 435 bhp for the six-speed model—an increase of 15 bhp—and torque to 410 ft lb, whereas the GTA retained the original 420 bhp output. A new exhaust system was fitted, incorporating the Vanquish-style bypass valves. The suspension was modified, and the chassis was stiffened by 20%. A Quickshift gear lever and racing twin-plate clutch offered a faster gear change and allowed the driver maximized use of the increased power and torque. Aiding in the improved drivability and control, larger Brembo brake discs and upgraded brake pads were fitted, increasing braking performance.

Externally, the body was assessed for aerodynamic balance at high speeds, and several changes were made. Additional sweeps for the undertray, wheel-arch liner extensions, and a revised boot-lid spoiler were said to reduce lift by almost 50%. The bonnet also featured Vanquish-style twin vents in order to help with airflow, and the upper and lower air intakes were covered with distinctive wire mesh grilles. Most noticeably, new five-spoke 18-inch allow wheels were fitted to provide optimum levels of performance and grip.

Offered here is one of these ultimate DB7 GTs, one of only 64 imported to the U.S. According to the Aston Martin Registry, this GT is one of two finished in this special “Bond” color of Silver Birch and is the only left-hand-drive example. The interior retains the full Bridge of Weir black leather sports seats. Originally delivered to New Hampshire in July 2003, chassis 304279 was sold into Michigan in 2006, where it remained for over a decade. Currently showing 30,761 miles, the Aston Martin has recently undergone $20,000 in servicing at an Aston Martin dealership, receipts for which are on file. Furthermore, the car includes a clean Carfax report, two sets of keys, Aston Martin umbrella, and original owner’s manual.

Infinitely drivable with its powerful V-12 and six-speed gearbox, this rare, sleek, and very collectable Aston Martin DB7 GT ticks all the proverbial boxes.
