The Aston Martin DB7 was a grand tourer made by Aston Martin from September 1994 to December 2003. The grand tourer was available either as a coupÃ© or a convertible. The prototype was completed in November 1992 and debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 1993 with huge acclaim. The six-cylinder DB7 replaced the lower Aston Martin V8 models, placing below the hand-built V8 Virage introduced a few years earlier.
The DB7 was the most successful Aston Martin model ever, with more than 7,000 built before it was replaced by the DB9. The DB7 was styled by Ian Callum and Keith Helfet, and it is widely considered one of the most beautiful and timeless of automotive designs. It took over 200 man hours to build a single DB7.
