Description

French title

- Beautiful presentation
- Last of the "Touring" styling
- Hardly used since the engine was restored

Leaving the factory in November 1966, this Aston Martin DB6 was equipped from new with various options: power steering, automatic gearbox, heated rear windscreen, seat belts, chrome wheels and electric aerial. Having had two owners in England, the car left for Luxembourg in 1982 before being sold at auction in 1986 in France by Maitre Osenat. It then came under the hammer of Maitre Poulain in 1987 and again in 1990. The engine was re-built in 1995 and the odometer reads 31 000 km today, having covered just 7 000 km since the mechanical restoration. In 2009-2010, the bodywork was restored by Aston Martin Paris and in 2014 the gearbox was rebuilt by Aston Martin Stuttgart. The blue CM 3282 (original color) Connolly leather upholstery is in lovely condition. The car is being sold with its original owner's manual in French and English, the spare parts catalogue and repair manual.
The last of the line created by Touring, the DB6 was equipped with the splendid 285 bhp six-cylinder twin-cam engine and had the advantage of a larger interior than its predecessors. This DB6 has been carefully maintained and the owner has assured us it is in impeccable condition, with an engine that performs beautifully. Clearly, having spent time at Aston Martin, this Aston must be in perfect mechanical condition.
