After 23 years, Aston Martin revived the DB nomenclature with the much-anticipated DB7. The DB 6 had ceased production in 1970 after a well-received followup to the legendary DB5. With tradition in mind, Aston Martin released an entry model DB7 powered by a 3.2 straight-6 engine, but twin SU carburetion made way for an Eaton supercharger, producing more power than its larger V8 counterparts in a lighter, more compact package. However, for those demanding higher performance, Aston Martin also created a series of V12-powered DB7s. This one-year-only GT is finished in a stunning blue over a personalized two-tone interior and is one of only 64 V12 Vantage GTs imported to the United States. It comes with the benefit of 15 horsepower and 10lb-ft of torque over the base V12 thanks to a re-worked ECU and active sports exhaust system, as well as an upgraded suspension and brakes. The GT also boasted several exclusive upgrades, including a mesh front grille, vented hood, integrated trunk spoiler, and black oak wooden inlays. Automotive Restorations, Inc. has maintained this DB7 for the last four years.
