Stately Supercar by GT lover from OC on 04/04/2012. Trim: 1997 Aston Martin DB7 Volante, Owned 2 years.
Pros: If you want class and performance, there is no other car you should consider. My DB7 is so smooth in ride and drivetrain that it is like riding on a cloud. The torque at the low end will rip the steering wheel out of your hands on take off and the accelleration does not let off until you do. As far as looks, hard to beat. I have the Volante and for a convert, solid as a rock. Had many other converts and they all rattle, not this one. Hit RR tracks and only thing you hear is the tire noise. Brakes are awesome too.
Cons: Electronics are out of date by todays standards but afraid to mess with such a lovely dash. Don't like the location of the parking brake lever and no cup holders. Should have cruise control as it really is a GT. Has been good to me with repairs, but when it does need something..hold on to your wallet!!
Overall review: Im a tall guy - 6'3" and its the only "supercar" I fit in comfortably. Turns heads everywhere....with those who know what it is and constantly a topic of conversation...but not like a Ferrari or Porsche. Really a very good everyday driver and thats what it is to me. Will most likely never sell it and just keep it as a 2nd car. They won't make them like this very much longer.
