An Aston Martin DB7 first registered to Sir Elton John is for sale on Auto Trader. It could be yours for £34,990.

A 1996 Volante convertible, this DB7 boasts a 3.2-litre supercharged straight-six and manual transmission. We wonder if Sir Elton opted to trade up for a V12-powered DB7 Vantage in the years following?

The car is metallic Toro Red with a magnolia interior and a black roof, plus walnut wood highlights and cherry red carpeting on the inside.

The manual transmission makes it very rare indeed, over and above its pop star provenance. Just 66 manual DB7 Volantes were made in this specification.

As for condition? It appears to want for nothing, with a comprehensively stamped history book. The car has had plenty of attention from Aston Martin Works and various specialists, and comes with a large file of receipts documenting work. That’s a good job, too, given that it’s a relatively high-mileage car, with 79,000 miles on the clock.

For a 27-year-old, it comes very well equipped. The fabric roof is electric and there’s air conditioning, cruise control and electric seats. Don’t expect Bluetooth or an aux cable for Apple CarPlay, though. This Aston is firmly from the cassette era.

Is the DB7 priced at a premium because of its celebrity history? Not especially. Some lower-mileage examples that come without a famous name on the V5 are priced higher. The car is available from Baker Brothers in Cobham.
