What's the used Aston Martin DB7 coupe like?

There are few cars that make you feel more like an international man of mystery than an Aston Martin DB7. With 420bhp on tap, the 6.0-litre V12 engine produces phenomenal acceleration – right up to 184mph – and sounds amazing when pressed hard.

The car is wonderfully relaxed at real-world speeds, however. And with so much power available you can afford to be lazy with the gearchanges and simply cruise along. In fact, that's where the DB7 is at its best; it drives more like a grand tourer than a sports car.

The interior wraps you in soft leather and polished wood, but, while the hide of the seats looks inviting, the driving position is poor.

Boot space is tight, but just about big enough for a set of golf clubs, while the rear seats are really only usable by children on short runs.
