Profile

The DB6 succeeded the legendary DB5 in 1965, offering it's occupants a similar level of performance but with more interior room, improved ride quality and added functionality. This is also the first opentop Aston to carry the 'Volante' name.

The Marek designed 4 litre straight six produced 325bhp in Vantage guise. Although slightly down on acceleration compared to the lighter DB5, the DB6 now hit a genuine 150mph top speed.

Passenger comfort was vastly improved over the DB5, with a 10cm increase in wheelbase making for a far more practical GT. For the first time, power steering was also an option.

The Mark II DB6 arrived in 1969, differentiated by flared bodywork.

At around 5000 when new, the DB6 was amongst the most expensive of it's contemporaries, but nothing compared to the 1 million now being asked for the rare Vantage Volante.
