DescriptionFisher Performance Cars are delighted to offer this special two owner Aston Martin DB6 MK2. Finished in AM Midnight Blue over Black leather interior. Fitted with a Borg-Warner Automatic gearbox and a Webasto folding Roof. A genuine UK car supplied by HR Owen, South Kensington and is now part of a private collection where it has been stored in climate-controlled conditions.
This car had a full body restoration at The Aston Workshop in 2000 with all supporting documents, invoices and pictures supplied. From 2001 – 2007 the car was maintained at Aston Martin Works service then with GTC up to present day.
The culmination of the Aston Martin’s long running line of ‘DB’ six-cylinder sports saloons and thus considered by many to be the last ‘real’ Aston, the DB6 was introduced in 1965, updating the DB5. Although recognisably related to the Touring-styled DB4 of 1958, the DB6 abandoned the Superleggera body structure of its predecessors in favour of a conventional steel fabrication, while retaining the aluminium outer panels. Increased rear-seat space was the prime DB6 objective, so the wheelbase was now 4” longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with more raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows. Opening front quarter lights made a reappearance but the major change was at the rear, where a Kamm-style tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds. These many dimensional changes were integrated most successfully, the DB6’s overall length increasing by only 2”.
A chance of owning an automotive piece of art and a true British masterpiece.
