Aston Martin DB7

Aston Martin once had strong ties with Ford which is why there used to be jokes about the DB7’s V12 being two Mondeo blocks welded together.

While the blocks may have been similar, the 420-bhp 5.9-litre V12 fitted to the DB7 was re-engineered in almost every respect, some switchgear however was straight out of contemporary Ford saloons.

None of it matters, Ferrari’s used Fiat buttons for years and that made them no less exciting to drive, the same applies to the DB7.

The best V12s are still under £60,000 and the 335-bhp supercharged 3.2-litre versions can be found for a third of that price. No Aston stays cheap for long.
