Ownership cost

What used Aston Martin DB7 sports will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Aston Martin DB7 sports?

The DB7 Volante shouldn't be as expensive to own as other V12 exotica, such as a Ferrari or Lamborghini, but that doesn't mean it will be cheap. Service intervals are every 7500 miles and each visit can set you back more than £600, so if you plan to cover some miles make sure that you budget accordingly. The DB7 also has a habit of consuming tyres; a set can last as little as 8000 miles and cost £800 to replace.

You're unlikely to buy a V12 DB7 if you're worried about its fuel consumption , but it's quite possible to get less than 17mpg, so you'll be spending a fair amount of time and money at the pumps. Insurance isn't cheap; you'll be doing well to keep the premium under four figures.
