What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The DB7 has a gorgeous shape, a fantastic engine note and a world-famous badge

Against It has a poor driving position, small boot, high running costs and surprisingly low specification

Verdict Good ones look a million dollars; bad ones can cost it. Make sure you know which is which

Go for… Light colours and complete histories

Avoid… Cars with patchy servicing

Aston Martin DB7 Coupe
  • 1. The rear seats are really only usable by children on short runs
  • 2. The exhaust manifolds are known to crack, and if you have to replace both sides, it can cost in excess of £800
  • 3. The Aston’s nose is prone to stone chipping, which can lead to corrosion if not properly repaired
  • 4. If the suspension set-up is wrong, it'll eat through tyres quickly, so check for signs of wear
  • 5. Connolly leather upholstery needs regular conditioning to stay in good shape
