PPW Motorcars is pleased to offer what is, bar none, the best possible equipped 2000 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante! This Magnificent Motorcar was ordered by New York Philanthropist Steven C. Calicchio and was kept as a summer car at his home in Southampton until his death. He ordered it from Miller Motorcars in Greenwich, Connecticut, where he ordered all of his cars from and spared no expense in having the best possible DB7. Most important was that he ordered it with a 6 Speed Manual Transmission! It is an absolute treat to drive and easily one of the truest sports car experiences one can experience. It was ordered in gorgeous Jet Black Paint with a Black Full Leather interior (whereas most of these vehicles have grey, blue, or some other odd color that was fashionable at the time but have not aged well). Further, instead of wood Mr. Calicchio opted for carbon fiber interior trim, which best suits the sporty nature of the vehicle. We could stop here and this would be the best DB7 Volante available on the market, but there is more. The vehicle was also equipped with factory sport exhaust that makes the car sound as an Aston Martin should, understated around town but with enough grown to make the owner realize he isn’t driving a Toyota as the non-sport exhaust would suggest and when opened up lets loose a wail that is unmistakably an Aston Martin V12. When this is paired with a 6 Speed Manual it offers passionate qualities that are not able to be duplicated in virtually any car, at any price point. At the risk of sounding long winded, Mr. Calicchio also had the car fitted at the factory with Premium Audio System, Heated Seats, Upper and Lower Wire Mesh Grills, Billet Aluminum Sport Pedals, Factory Equipped 19” Sport Wheels, Sport Steering Wheel, Golf Umbrella, Heated Front Windscreen, and a dedication plaque on the driver side entry sill bearing his name. To our knowledge, this is the hardest loaded DB7 in existence! About 15 years after production the vehicle was also fitted with a K40 Radar and Laser system as well as an upgraded aftermarket radio with iPod connectivity and Bluetooth discretely mounted for in car phone calls. It is our opinion and very likely fact that this is the single most desirable DB7 Vantage Volante on the market today!
What makes this vehicle truly worth owning is the character that a mid-year Aston Martin delivers. This magnificent motorcar was produced in an era when Aston Martin was upping their quality to the best of their ability and it shows with this example. The amount of leather for one is second to few other cars and the build quality is excellent compared with the earlier 6 cylinder DB7. The 5.9L V12 engine is outrageously enjoyable to operate, whether it be cruising at 2000RPM or running it to its 7000RPM redline. The suspension is tight and the transmission is silky smooth.
Making this magnificent motorcar even more desirable is the extensive service work and documentation accompanying it. In the last two months to prepare the vehicle to the highest standard for sale the vehicle underwent a massive service including: an oil and filter change, transmission fluid flush, differential fluid flush, brake fluid flush, coolant flush, new coolant cap, new air filters, new spark plugs, new parking brake shoes, new Continental DW tires on all 4 wheels, an alignment, a new water pump, an oil pressure switch, an oil temperature sensor, 4 new oxygen sensors, numerous coolant hoses replaced, numerous power steering hoses replaced, and much more! While none of these repairs are glamourous or fun to pay for, they are something that ALL of these cars need to be in tip top shape. We spared no expense performing these repairs (some in house and some at a specialty shop) to ensure that this is truly a “no excuses example” and is ready to be enjoyed by the next owner without worry! Further, both fuel pumps have recently been replaced along with numerous other service related items. Accompanying the vehicle are extensive service records, all books, a full factory service manual, two keys with fobs, a full tool set, original spare tire, black leather convertible top cover, a black leather pouch to store the cover, and even the ORIGINAL delivery paperwork! Offered for the true collector, investor, or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this extremely rare, perfectly optioned, and top of the line Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante! Bid with confidence-you will not be disappointed in this truly amazing motorcar!
