One-off Aston Martin to be Sold at Auction

By Paul Joseph

A one-of-a-kind Aston Martin, especially commissioned by a member of the Saudi Arabian Royal family, is to go under the hammer at a UK auction next month.

The Aston Martin DB7 V8 features a giant 6350cc V8 Vantage engine derived from the AMR1 racing car, producing an impressive 452 bhp. It will be sold at a Historics at Brooklands auction in Surrey, UK on the 1st September.

Superior stopping power is supplied by AP Racing brakes, whilst the suspension and steering have also been uprated to accommodate the car’s augmented power and speed.

Finished in Cheviot red paintwork and parchment leather seating piped in oxblood, with matching claret carpets, the DB7 V8 has covered just 3,220 miles from new.

The one-off Aston Martin DB7 V8 is expected to fetch between £70,000 and £80,000 at the auction.

Historics at Brooklands is the premier UK-based auction house for the sale and purchase of historic, classic and sports cars and motoring memorabilia.
