A fairly dusty 420-horsepower Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante sports car was found in one of the capital’s underground parking lots. Apparently, the car has not been used for a long time.
This is reported by RBC-Ukraine Auto with a link to Facebook Roma Urraco.
Note that the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante is a charged version of the DB7 convertible – this is the first car of the British brand with a V12 engine.
Under the hood of the car, a 5.9-liter naturally aspirated engine develops 420 horsepower and 542 Nm of torque. Paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission, the power unit accelerates the car to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds. Top speed is limited to 266 km/h.
At its debut at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show, the DB7 Vantage Volante was one of the fastest open-top Aston Martins ever built. The V12 engine needed better cooling than the 6-cylinder – so the British brand’s signature grille was enlarged. In just 4 years of production, 2059 such charged convertibles were produced.
As for the copy found in the underground parking, it is a 2003 model car. Despite its age, the interior of the car is perfectly preserved, and the mileage on the odometer is only 39 thousand kilometers.
Last October, this Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante was listed for sale for $55,000, but no one ever bought it.
Rare cars are quite often found in Ukraine. So in the capital there is a whole cemetery of ancient buses – the abandoned car park No. 7 of Kievpastrans.
