The Aston Martin DB7 Zagato An Instant Hit

Sep 5, 2007
The classic Zagato line from Aston Villa had an addition with the 2003 DB7. The DB7 was first unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concourse and immediately was a hit with the car world as the DB7 carries on with the classic Zagato tradition with its exsquisite look, sleek design style, and ultimate performance. The DB7 Zagato is one of the premier automobiles that Aston Villa has ever produced.

The interior of the DB7 Zagato is ultimate class as it features a special, just for the DB7 model, aniline leather trim and door trim that was modified so that it would match the high waistline. The seats in the cabin are pure luxury and are also finished in aniline leather and to give the DB7 a distinct signature there is an embossed "Z" on the back of the seats. The DB7 Zagato is a 2 seater but there is a luggage shelf in the rear of the cabin. The stereo in the DB7 Zagato gives superior sound in the 6 speakers throughout the cabin featuring an AM/FM Becker 6-disc auto-changer.

The exterior design of the DB7 Zagato is all style as it has a very low to the ground build and is curvaceous from bumper to bumper. The body is constructed from aluminum that is hand beaten and the DB7 Zagato has Aston Martin's signature bubble roof and large signature grill. The DB7 Zagato has large 18" wheels that have a revised offset to create a wider track. The DB7 Zagato is a very sleek and aerodynamic car that has maximum performance and a distinct aesthetic look that is both sexy and classy.

The DB7 Zagato features a 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission with a short shift gear lever. The car has superior braking capabilities with four vented disc brakes and Antilock Braking System on all four wheels. This allows for the car to stop on a dime even at high speeds. The DB7 Zagato is a car that has excellent handling abilities as well featuring an upgraded DB7 Vantage sports suspension in both the front and rear, which were designed especially by Aston Martin for the DB7 Zagato. This gives the car maximum handling abilities on the road evne at high speeds and when taking tight turns. The DB7 Zagato also features the Electronic Traction Control gives the car superior traction as it grips the road superbly.

The Zagato DB7 features a 48-valve 5.9-liter V12 engine that produces 420 horsepower and accelerates to a maximum speed of 186 mph, going from 0-60 in an impressive 4.9 seconds. This engine is exactly the same that was used in Aston Martin's DB7 Vantage Volante but because of the Zagato twin exhaust system, as well as the fact of the shorter body, the Zagato DB7 is 133 pounds lighter, which gives the car more power and quickness.

The Aston Martin DB7 Zagato is an aerodynamic and exquisite car that has excellent performance. The handling, traction, and braking capabilities are second to none and the interior is pure class and functionality. This classic supercar has a distinct look all its own and is in a class of its own.
