20 Cars that Marked the 1990s

6. Aston Martin DB7


The Aston Martin is famous for being James Bond’s favorite car, and the DB5 was truly iconic. But it was the DB7 model that was introduced in the 1990s, and despite the fact that only 2,461 DB7s were made over the course of three years, this vehicle will always be remembered as one of the coolest. It featured the new TWR-built engine with twin overhead camshaft, light alloy wheels, and a water-cooled supercharger. In 1996, Aston Martin launched the convertible version named the DB7 Volante.
