The Aston Martin DB7 is the archetypal Bond car. Effortlessly quick, raffishly handsome, with a pedigree that harks back to Auric Goldfinger, everybody knows that this is the car that 007 would select as his weapon of choice. The good news is that you no longer need a secret agent salary to afford a DB7. With used models now costing around the price of an entry-level Porsche Boxster, this classic British sportscar is more affordable than many think.
If you undertake to buy a used Aston Martin DB7, first be very sure of what you are getting yourself into. Despite more modern manufacturing processes at its Newport Pagnell factory, you'll still find a plaque under the huge bonnet of every DB7 proudly proclaiming the engine's handbuilt origins and the name of the man who signed it off. Running costs are high as the car will need regular servicing and any skimping in this department will be rapidly apparent. With the DB7, perhaps more than any other, buying at the bottom end of the market is a false economy. Go for a car with a proper service history, bought from people who know their stuff and are looking to forge an ongoing relationship. Still, it's worth the expense to see that winged emblem on the fascia, safe in the knowledge that James Bond would be happy to sit where you are.
