Aston’s grand touring coupes of old are a mainstay in collector circles, and the brand’s more contemporary offerings remain little-departed from the golden formula.

Driven wheels at the back, a peach of an engine up front, and nothing but leather and woodgrain in between; Aston Martin’s handsome muscular offerings of the 90s have plenty of headspace to appreciate in the future.

The DB7 arrived in September 1994, and was the most successful Aston Martin at the time, with 7000 built by the time the DB9 arrived in 2004.

Available in either hardtop coupe or convertible guise, customers could option either the flagship 5.9lt V12 or the ‘entry-level’ supercharged 3.2lt inline-six.

This Australian-delivered Pennine Grey 1996 example features the silky supercharged six with the four-speed automatic transmission.

Specified with matching great leather trim and woodgrain inserts, the car presents very well with only minimal creases on the driver’s seat.

The car includes books and history as well as incredibly low-mileage with only 49,329kms covered since new.

For a listed $65,000, this is a lot of car for the money; and with only 1605 3.2lt coupes produced, the handsome Brit could find itself as a genuine sought-after collectible in the future.

The car is based in Melbourne and is on offer via The Healey Factory.
