The DB6 is a great choice for those wishing to purchase a classic Aston Martin from the golden period of Aston production.
It was developed with a view to making an Aston that was more usable day-today. The emphasis was on more room for all, making it a great choice for those wishing to share the pleasure of classic Aston Martin ownership with family or friends. At the same time, no compromise was made in terms of performance or handling, ensuring that the DB6 adheres to the Aston Martin core values of luxury and performance combined with stunning looks.
The DB6 was further refined with the introduction of the Mark II in 1969. Identified by distinct flares on front and rear wheel arches and wider tyres on 1/2" wider wheels, it shared many parts with the 'at the time' newly introduced DBS.
A high-powered DB6 Vantage was also offered. It was equipped with three Weber carburetors and higher compression ratio cylinder head, and it is a version of that car that we have for sale here.
This particular DB6 MKII Vantage has been cherished by its previous owners and has not just one, but three history folders that outline the high level of regular maintenance and care it has received over the years.
All of the cars we have for sale at Aston Workshop are thoroughly checked on arrival and as a result of such regular servicing etc. the car never missed a beat on the induction test drive, behaving beautifully throughout.
Whilst it could benefit from some cosmetic attention with regard to bodywork and trim in particular to make it outstanding, it could just as easily be driven away today and enjoyed with confidence over the coming summer months.
This lovely, original example in the classic combination of Silver with Burgundy Hide offers a great opportunity for anyone wishing to purchase a sound DB6 MKII Vantage. One that can be used straight away, but one that would also benefit from a relatively straightforward Aston Workshop re-trim and refurbishment, either now or when circumstances allow.
We have seen a surge of interest in the DB6 in recent years and the MKII Vantage is becoming increasingly rare, so we would recommend those who are interested contact a member of our sales team as soon as possible for further details to avoid any disappointment.
