The Aston Martin DB6

The Aston Martin DB6 debuted in 1965 and was the culmination of a decade of engineering developments and the third of the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera designed DB cars. Superleggera was Carrozzeria Touring’s patented lightweight construction method and Aston Martin constructed the bodies for the DB4, DB5 and DB6 under license at their factory in the UK

1766 DB6 examples were produced with the 3995cc straight six double overhead cam engines with triple SU carbs

producing 282 BHP in standard configuration.

The Aston Martin DB6 is the final and most refined derivative of the DB series Aston Martins.- Improvements over the DB5 included:

  • Wheelbase 100mm longer
  • Squared off rear spoiler which improved aerodynamics and improved stability at high speeds
  • Location of the battery moved to the boot for optimal weight distribution
  • Raised roofline which aided comfort for rear passengers
  • Steeper raked windscreen
  • Improved comfortable seats

The Aston Martin DB6 MK 2 was introduced in August 1969 with many new parts from the upcoming DBS

Only 240 MK2 examples were produced and upgrades included:

  • Wider Avon wire wheels with 3 ear knock offs as standard
  • Flared wheel arches
  • Power steering now standard equipment
  • Clutch plate was replaced by a 10.5-inch version
  • Pleated leather seats as per DBS design

This Example:

This Aston Martin DB6 is a MK2 example with the desirable Vantage specification. The registration document (RC1) shows the first year of registration as 1969 and reflects a “Used” status with the previous registration numbers showing Transvaal and Gauteng license numbers.

According to the accompanying Heritage Certificate, this example was dispatched to its first owner on the 17th of September 1969.

It was purchased in 2012 by the current owner for restoration with the previous owner before him having owned it since 1985 (only two owners over the past 37 years). A complete bare metal restoration commenced with one of the leading restoration specialists in Johannesburg and this is extensively documented in a restoration file and is available for inspection.

This is an opportunity to secure an important model in Aston Martin’s history and the ultimate specification incorporating all development updates throughout the lifecycle of the Italian designed Carrozzeria Touring DB cars. In addition, this restored & rebuilt Aston Martin DB6 MK2 Vantage will allow its new owner to enjoy the best roads in the world without delay.
