Aston Martin DB7, DB9, DBS

A photographic study of the Aston Martin supercars of the 1990s and 2000s. The Aston Martin launched its new ’entry-level’ grand tourer, the DB7, in 1994. Its role was stated by company chairman Walter Hayes: ’The DB7 was meant to be what DB’s have always been: a user-friendly gentleman and lady’s car with a soft ride, but one that would hang on like a leech, would drive very elegantly if you wanted to take your daughter to school, but would go like a bat out of hell if you felt like it. We were interested in providing the ingredient that Aston always provided which is elegance and fulfilment on the road.’ The V12-engined DB9 succeeded the DB7 in 2004 and was the first car to come out of Aston Martin’s new Gaydon facility in Warwickshire. Then in 2007 came the high-performance DBS styled by the celebrated designer Marek Reichman. This book is an illustrated record of these three cars.
