2003 ASTON MARTIN DB7 GTA
** ONE OF ONLY 48 CARS REMAINING IN THE UK OUT OF 71 GTA’s THAT WERE PRODUCED WORLDWIDE IN RIGHT HAND DRIVE & FINISHED IN THE STRIKING LAUNCH COLOUR OF VERTIGO BLUE **
Recently acquired for Horsepower Hangar and previously supplied by ourselves, is this delightful GTA that has only covered 32,975 miles over the last 14 years. Out of only 112 cars produced worldwide, 71 were made in RHD and even fewer in Vertigo blue.
The GTA cars produced received a host of improvement over the DB7 Vantage and were coupled to a V12 that produces 420bhp and a 5 speed Touchtronic automatic gearbox.
A delightful, unique and rare car that’s an absolute joy to drive and a sound future investment too.
All cars on sale by Horsepower Hangar are HPi checked and mechanically inspected.

In 2002, a new variant was launched, named V12 GT or V12 GTA when equipped with an automatic transmission. It was essentially an improved version of the Vantage, its V12 engine producing 435 bhp (324 kW; 441 PS) and 410 lb·ft (560 N·m) of torque for the manual GT, although the automatic GTA retained the 420 bhp (313 kW; 426 PS) and 400 lb·ft (540 N·m) of torque of the standard DB7 Vantage.
Additionally, the GT and GTA chassis had substantially updated suspension from the DB7 Vantage models. Aesthetically, compared to the Vantage it has a mesh front grille, vents in the bonnet (hood), a boot (trunk) spoiler, an aluminium gear lever, optional carbon fibre trim and new wheels.
It also has 355 mm (14.0 in) front and 330 mm (13.0 in) rear vented disc brakes made by Brembo. When being tested by Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear in 2003, he demonstrated the car’s ability to pull away in fourth gear and continue until it hit the rev limiter: the speedometer indicated 135 mph (217 km/h).
Production of the GT and GTA was extremely limited, as only 190 GT’s and 112 GTA’s were produced worldwide and only 64 GTs and 17 GTAs were shipped to the US market, out of a total of 302 cars.
