A DB7 with a V8 engine?

The DB7 was originally launched in 1994 with a 3.2 liter straight-6 engine, producing 335hp. Then in 1999, for the DB7 V12 Vantage, the engine was replaced with a 5.9 liter V12, delivering 420hp.

So what do we have here? A DB7 with a V8 engine?
The guys at Newport Pagnell created this one-off for the Saudi Arabian Royal family, squeezing a 6.3 liter V8 into the engine compartment (they had to add a bulge to the hood to manage it). Interestingly, this V8 powered DB7 is more powerful than the official V12 edition, at it brings 452 horses!

Other modifications (besides the engine and bulging hood) include: modified suspension, better brakes, improved steering and an ugly V8 batch on the rear end.

Like it? Then you’re in luck, because it’s up for auction on September 1, at Historics at Brooklands. It has only driven 3,220 miles and is probably going for US $110.000 plus.
