One of only 71 DB6 Mk2 Vantages ever made chassis number '4184/R' comes with the all-important Aston Martin Assured Provenance (issued January 2021), original vantage engine, gearbox, suspension and brakes were found to be to original specification matching numbers car, and no evidence found of repairs to either the body or chassis. The interior upholstery has been re-trimmed and the carpets renewed, and the car has been fitted with an after-market 8-track radio/cassette and its associated speakers. Internal Invoices for a fuel filter, spark plugs, and a new Bosch battery (2018).
The Tadek Marek-designed six-cylinder engine had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5, and remained unchanged. Power output on triple SU carburettors was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, and for the first time, there was optional power-assisted steering. Introduced in July 1969, the DB6 Mark 2 incorporated many components shared with the new DBS, most obviously the latter's wider wheels, which necessitated flaring the front and rear wheel arches. All Mark 2 Vantages came with the highest (325bhp) 'C' state of tune, while all cars benefited from power-assisted steering as standard. Production lasted until November 1970, during which time only 240 DB6 Mark 2s were manufactured, 71 of which were to Vantage specification. The wheelbase was now 4" longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with more-raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows. Opening front quarter lights made a re-appearance, but the major change was at the rear where a Kamm-style tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds.
