Aston Martin to build two new special DB7 models for U.S. market

Aston Martin to build two new special DB7 models for U.S. market
( article from AutoWeek)

Aston Martin will build two special DB7 models next year for the U.S. market, a Zagato-bodied DB7 and a cut-down DB7 Speedster. Up to 100 of each model will be produced, with the Speedster debut likely at next Januaryís Los Angeles auto show. Pricing is expected to be in the $190,000 range.

With a minimal windscreen and no rear seats, the DB7 Speedster will have no rain protection. Inside, the cabin will be fitted with racing bucket seats and metal trim replacing wood. Otherwise, styling will be unchanged, as will the 420-hp V12 engine.

Milanese coachbuilder Zagato, responsible for the gorgeous 1960s DB4GT, will create a special-bodied coupe on a short-chassis DB7. The carís styling is said to be influenced by the 1960s car and has hallmark roof bulges to make extra headroom for helmeted occupants. Performance will be boosted by a more powerful 6.0-liter V12 and suspension stiffened.

Odd brand out

Even though Lincoln is no longer part of Fordís Premier Automotive Group, Lincoln folks holed up in PAGís swanky Southern California digs wonít be moving back to the Glass House in Dearborn. Fordís Jim Padilla quieted that rumor shortly after the announcement that PAG would consist only of Fordís European luxury brands, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
