DB7 i6 Stratstone LE coupe

(1999)

Shortly before the ending of DB7 i6 production in May 1999, Stratstone of Mayfair, the London dealer of Aston Martins commissioned a small series of identical DB7's for their customers. But unlike the previous Stratstone commissioned cars, the GTS/GTS II, the Stratstone limited edition, the car was built entirely on the line by Aston Martin themselves.
