One-off Aston Martin DB7 up for auction image

A one-off 1998 Aston Martin DB7, which is commissioned by a member of the Saudi Arabian Royal family, will be auction by Historics at Brooklands next month.

The classic sports car and auctioneer Historics at Brooklands has announced that on the auctions list for September 1 a one-off Aston Martin DB7 will be found which was commissioned by a member of the Saudi Arabian Royal Family. The British sports car in question is currently wearing a Cheviot red paint job but what makes the vehicle so special doesn’t have anything in common with the standard 335 HP inline six-cylinder unit or the larger V12 from the Vantage, with its 420 horsepower.

According to the auctioneer, the Aston Martin DB7 in question is actually powered by a 6.4 liter V8 engine from the AMR1 racing car, which is producing a total output of 452 horsepower, more than the larger V12. The Aston Martin DB7 is also coming with bulging hood lines, AP Racing braking system, an upgraded suspension and an improved steering. The model has been driven for just 3,220 miles (5,180 km) and it’s expected to sell between 70,000 and 80,000 GBP or between 89,000 and 102,000 euros.
