Description

- Finished in British Racing Green with Natural Connelly Hide interior.
- Converted from RHD to LHD.
- Originally a Demonstrator for a Renowned Aston Martin Dealership.
- 1 of 245 DB6 MKII examples in the world.

The DB6 MKII Vantage was first introduced in August of 1969 and could be identified by the models flared front and rear wheel arches, revised Front Seat design and a host of other small changes. The DB6 MKII came fitted with a 5-Speed ZF Manual gearbox mated to the 4.0L Straight Six engine. This example also has the Vantage engine upgrade fitted from factory so the inclusion of triple Webber Carburettors as well as improved power and torque delivery and 43 bhp extra can be lovingly enjoyed by its next custodian.

DB6MK2/4271/R began life as a Demonstrator for a renowned Aston Martin Dealership in the South of England in 1970. From then the DB6 was lovingly kept as well as professionally converted from RHD to LHD for export to mainland Europe. From the late 1990’s to the early 2010’s we have record of this example being enjoyed and cared for in Hilterfingen, Switzerland as well as earlier records from the AMOC Register showing this DB6 residing in Germany. In the DB6’s more recent history a full restoration and refurbishment was taken on and now is a shining example of how good a car of this age can really look whilst also making this a useable and enjoyable example to own.

This example is now available from Aston Martin Works and has been prepared by our expert team of Heritage Technicians and comes with 1 years Aston Martin Warranty, ready for its next custodian to love and enjoy.
