Remarkable performance, beautiful styling, and exclusive ownership guaranteed with this supercar.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage continues to be available as either a two-door coupe or a two-door convertible. This 2+2 seater grand tourer has several changes included for the new model year both inside and outside of the car. Known for being driven in James Bond movies, the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is as stylish as it is powerful, but for a price.

The Range

Body styles: two-door coupe, two-door convertible
Engines: 5.9-liter V-12
Transmissions: six-speed manual, five-speed automatic
Models: Aston Martin DB7 Vantage

What's New

The changes that have been introduced with the new 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage all have to do with improving comfort while riding in this supercar. The new standard audio system has been upgraded, the starter button is now illuminated, console switches have been improved, there is a new steering wheel, the headliner has been modified to improve head room, and the seat travel has been increased so that more legroom can be provided.

Additional options have also become available with the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage, which include 19-inch alloy wheels, metallic interior trim, and red, gold, or grey colored brake calipers. A navigation system is also available as an optional extra.

Exterior

The exterior of the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is timeless, and as such, little has changed with the launch of the 2002 models. The 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage has a distinctive, yet classy look. The clean lines provide a touch of elegance in this class of car. Headlights and fog lights integrated into a low-lying grille provide an aggressive touch that hints at what can be found under the hood of the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage. The sky’s the limit when it comes to color options, as almost any color option can be custom ordered for the body of the supercar. 18-inch aluminum wheels are standard, but nine-spoke design 19-inch alloy wheels are optional.

Interior

The interior of the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage continues the luxurious and elegant style witnessed from the outside. Connolly leather and walnut wood trim abound as standard finishes for the inside of the cabin. The gauges and instruments are easy to read and laid out in a clean and functional manner.

While the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage has a 2+2 layout, and comes fitted with a rear seat, the backseat is extremely small and unsuitable for most passengers. Even some older children will find the rear passenger area too cramped for them. To improve cargo room, the rear seat can be omitted entirely. Head room in the front may be limited for taller passengers, particularly in the convertible with the top up.

The soft top of the convertible model of the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is operated with the push of button. It contains a heated rear glass window, and improves noise within the cabin when the top is up. When the top is up, there can be significant rear blind spots, although the large side mirrors help compensate for this issue.

Performance & Handling

Both the coupe and convertible models of the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage are equipped with a 5.9-liter V-12 engine that produces 420 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission comes as standard, while a five-speed automatic transmission can be fitted at no extra cost.

Power and acceleration of this supercar are as to be expected with an engine this size under the hood, even though the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage is a heavy car. Steering is precise, and the highly tuned suspension provides a smooth ride. At speed, the weight of the supercar can be felt when taking corners quickly. The handling provides nimble maneuvering around town, but the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage comes into its own when cruising at speed on the highway.

Safety

Anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes are the only standard safety equipment included with the 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage supercars. A traction control system, as well as parking sensors, is available as an option. Side impact airbags are not available on either model.

EPA Fuel Economy

Aston Martin DB7 Vantage: 11/18 mpg city/highway
