Aston Martin DB7
The Aston Martin DB7 was launched to the public at the Geneva Motorshow in March 1993, powered by a light alloy, twin camshaft, supercharged straight six engine based on a design that originated at Jaguar. The cylinder used 4 valves per cylinder with Zytec electronic multi-point fuel injection and received air from a water cooled Eaton, 'roots' type supercharger driven by a toothed belt from the camshaft.
In 1996, the Aston Martin DB7 Volante made its debut at the Los Angeles and Detroit Motor Show, and in 1999 the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage was introduced as the first model to be powered by a V12 engine. The "smaller" Aston Martin was a suggestion by Victor Gauntlett, and with the new funding from the Ford Motor Company, was developed by Rod Mansfield who used 30 prototypes to ensure success of the project (code-named DP1999 and later NPX).
