Review of the 2002 Aston Martin DB7

  • A gorgeous automobile with stunning performance, the DB7 Vantage nonetheless faces stiff competition in this stratospheric price range.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Gorgeous styling, V12 power, joy of owning a unique marque.

  • Cons

    Dated platform, Porsche and Ferrari competitors offer more pure performance.

  • What's New for 2002

    Aston Martin's DB7 Vantage sees a host of changes for the 2002 model year. The audio system has been upgraded from an Alpine unit to a Becker "Mexico" unit. The headliner has been modified to offer slightly more headroom, and seat travel has been increased to offer more legroom. Other upgrades include a battery disconnect switch in the trunk to help preserve battery power on cars that sit for a week or more and revised interior switchgear that offers some much-appreciated distinction between Aston Martin Vantage and Jaguar controls.

    New options include a 19-inch alloy wheel option with a nine-spoke design, a metallic interior trim set for those who don't care for either wood or carbon fiber accents, and colored brake calipers, available in grey, red or gold. An illuminated starter button, revised steering wheel, improved air-conditioning controls and an optional Becker "Traffic Pro" navigation system round out this year's changes.

Good stuff all around

Vehicle: 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante 2dr Convertible (5.9L 12cyl 6M)

I personally own two DB7's, one in red and one in green, and they are by far two of my most favorite vehicles. The vehicles have never broken down and they always respond to any weather condition, any driving surface, and any other distraction remarkably. The interior noise level is minimal even at high speeds. It is a great vehicle.

When i first got into this car I thought it was a bit cramped but after i took it ou tof r a test drive I forgot all about the interior and let the my feet and hands take over. Get this car if you ever get the chance

Aston db 7 vantage coupe

Vehicle: 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6M)

Boy, I thought I got a lot of comments on my 64 Mustang Convertible. You cannot drive the Aston anywhere without getting complete strangers coming up to you to talk about the car: "I wanted all my life to see an Aston" "Oh my God, the James Bond car!" "Are you married?" It is a real pleasure to see the joy this automobile brings to people.

I always thought my 64 Mustang Convertible brought smiles of joy to the faces of people. That was nothing compared to the DB 7. Almost every time you drive it, complete strangers come up to you to talk about the car, sometimes leading to crowds of 4 or 5 people. It is really quite a pleasure in our increasingly cold, impersonal world to see people react with such joy when they see this car.




My new aston....

Vehicle: 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage 2dr Coupe (5.9L 12cyl 6M)

I just bought a brand new DB7 Vantage Coupe. It is a beautiful car, inside and out. It is colored in an irridesent grey, and the interior is Black with carbon fiber trim. It is a magnificant auto. I ordered this car with the James Bond special edition sport package, sport tuned exaust and all. Everywhere I go, heads turn, one guy even bowed to the car and said, " im not worthy" the other day. The car put me back quite a bit, but it is every bit worth it. I've had no mechanical problems at all, however, it is only 2 weeks old. Powe (420 hp) ,performance (0-60 in 5.0) and beauty...I love this car.
