DB7 GT Prototype For Sale

Aston Martin DB7GT Prototype – SDV19 – Chassis no. 300009 – 86228 miles

First registered on the 7th April 1999 and owned by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd until 2006. Sold through the dealership network via HWM and purchased in 2008 by the current third owner. This is the very last DB7 sold by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd.

The colour scheme is Solway Grey with Charcoal leather, black carpets and dark grey Alcantara headlining.

The car was used extensively as an engineering car by the Aston Martin research and development team throughout the DB7 Vantage program and because of who has driven the car during this period, those historical records are retained by AML.

It is stated that SDV19 was rebuilt by Aston Martin in 2002/2003 to what is now DB7GT specification excluding the exterior panels which remain as per DB7 Vantage. It was used as the ‘mule’ to develop the package that would become the last and most sought after of the DB7V12 range.

The first ten car produced were held back by Aston Martin for press and development requirements. The details are listed below:

  • 01 Totally unknown history
  • 02 SDV13 – Vantage Volante – now AMV8 Concept
  • 03 SDV14 – Sales Development Vehicle – fate unknown
  • 04 SDV15 – Sales Development Vehicle – fate unknown
  • 05 SDV16 – Sales Development Vehicle – fate unknown
  • 06 SDV17 – Vantage Volante – now Guigiaro 2020 Concept
  • 07 Totally unknown history
  • 08 SDV18 – DB7 Zagato Prototype
  • 09 SDV19 – DB7GT Prototype
  • 10 SDV20 – Vantage Coupe – Magazine Road test car

It is important to note that SDV19 is the only vehicle from the first batch that started its life and has remained a Coupe still in current use. An accompanying letter from Kingsley Riding-Felce confirms that SDV19 was used by Aston Martin as a development vehicle.

The moniker ‘SDV’ is the modern equivalent of the older ‘DP’ or ‘Development Project’ status given to cars used for further advancement of the model.

  • Uprated engine ECU’s
