Specification

The Aston Martin DB6 was unveiled at the 1965 London Motor Show, and was notable for being the first model produced following the company's factory relocation from Feltham to Newport Pagnell. The DB6 was a 2+2 Coupé grand tourer that succeeded the DB5, featuring both aerodynamic and engineering improvements over its predecessor. The model ran from September 1965 to January 1971, with less than 1,800 examples being produced during this time.

The DB6 featured a 3995cc twin-overhead camshaft straight-six engine that produced over 280bhp at 5,500rpm in standard specification, enough to accelerate the car to 60mph in 8 seconds and on to a top speed of 150mph! Although the DB6 weighed around 7 kilos more than its predecessor, it was actually more practical than a DB5 and more stable at high speeds thanks to its longer wheelbase, more-raked windscreen, and distinctive rear Kamm Tail spoiler.

The example we are delighted to offer was first registered in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1966 before moving to its second keeper six years later. The second owner used and enjoyed the car regularly, treating it to a large amount of work in 1979, including a rear axle overhaul, fresh clutch and flywheel, and a complete interior re-trim featuring reupholstered seats in red leather, new headlining, door cards, and carpets. The same keeper went on to own the car right up until 2018, carrying out plenty of further maintenance to the vehicle, including refurbished suspension, brake system overhaul, new wire wheels, and more recently a complete, bare metal respray in its original colour Silver Birch.

The car maintains its original handbook, workshop manual and an incredible history folder detailing the vast amount of work the car has had done over the years as well as old MOT certificates dating back to 1974. Being the last in a long-running line of six-cylinder 'DB' cars, the DB6 is considered by many to be the last true Aston Martin, with this example presenting itself as a great addition to any collection as well as a real investment opportunity.
