1968 ASTON MARTIN DB6 COUPE This is a lovely Aston Martin DB6 that was sold new to a Scottish noble and businessman. It has been fastidiously maintained and is in excellent cosmetic, mechanical, and running order throughout. It is very complete with Aston Martin build sheet, tools, jack, and manuals. This car is in Lafayette, CA THE MODEL Introduced in October of 1965 at the London Motor Show, the Aston Martin DB6 was the ultimate development of Aston Martin’s legendary line of six-cylinder David Brown cars. Taking the already impressive DB5 as a base, the DB6 included revised aerodynamics were revised to reduce rear end lift at high speed, particularly through the inclusion of the Kamm tail. The wheelbase was also lengthened to improve stability and provide more space for the rear occupants. A ZF 5-speed gearbox was standard, and the engine was a 4 liter triple carbureted variant of the lovely alloy twin-cam inline-6 designed by Tadek Marek. The car was a powerful and elegant sports touring car, one which remains a timeless blue-chip classic thanks to its blend of all the ingredients that make a car universally appealing. Aesthetically and mechanically, the car is captivating and appealing, while the touch of star quality from the association of Astons with James Bond is still quite culturally relevant.
