an't think of anything to give that special someone in your life? Need something to give your morning commute a lift? Why not Aston Martin's new DB7 convertible? We can guarantee you will be the first one on your block to have one.

The DB7 Volante made its world debut at both the Detroit and Los Angeles Auto Shows this January. As you can see, its elegant soft-top and classic flowing lines and proportions made it an easy choice in the voting for "One ofthe Most Beautiful Cars in the World'' award handed out by an independent panel of Italian artists, sculptors, photographers and graphic designers.

The Volunte will go on sale in a progressive rollout across the world during this summer, but as you would expect, more than 600 CoupCs have already been sold in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific to people who just couldn't wait. How much does it cost? If you have to ask, you can't aford it.

David Price, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin Lagonda, described the DB7 Volante and CoupC as "undoubtedly the most sophisticated and technologically advanced Aston Martins ever to be introduced.'' A classic 2+2 front-engine, rear-wheel drive British sports car, the DB7 is powered by a supercharged six-cylinder, in-line 24-valve 3.2 litre engine that develops 335 horsepower. Features include twin airbags, side-impact beams, full "on board" diagnostic equipment and anti-lock disc brakes on all wheels.

The DB7 was designed and developed with the assistance and support of Sir David Brown who was the owner of Aston Martin Lagonda from 1947 to 1972. Its elegant flowing lines are the work of Scottish designer Ian Callum, a former senior designer with Ghia of Turin. Full use has been made in the car' s development of Ford Research Centers and proving grounds in Europe and the United States during a million-mile test program.
