Web Find: Aston Martin DB7 Volante

It might be hard to imagine now with planes grounded due to a massive nor’easter hitting a good portion of the US, but someday soon, spring will arrive. And with spring comes the desire get up early on weekend mornings and drive a convertible briskly down hilly b-roads.

A 1997 Aston Martin DB7 Volante (or convertible) is for sale on eBay with a “buy it now” price of $32,900. For which you get a hand built supercharged 6 cylinder engine producing 335 hp and 365 lb-ft. With only 21,000 miles on it the Aston looks to be in good driving condition. The exterior doesn’t show any paint defects, and the interior looks nearly brand new.

The DB7 has its critics, mainly because it was built under the ownership of Ford, is made of steel rather than aluminum, and is based on the Jaguar XJS platform. But for a more than reasonable $32 grand, you can nab a hand built car from a famous marquee, perfect for long spring drives.
