Gloriously styled, faster than Malcolm Tucker's temper and spectacularly British, there is an endless number of reasons to own an Aston Martin DB6.
After the final move from Feltham, the new Aston Martin DB6 from 1965 was the first Aston Martin to be totally engineered at the new works in Newport Pagnell. The successful 4-litre six-cylinder double overhead cam unit was carried over from the DB5, and market appeal was increased by improving interior room by adding 4 inches to the wheelbase and offering greater overall headroom. Total length increased by only 2 inches over the previous model however, and although the new DB6 looked far more substantial, it weighed in at only 17lbs more than the DB5. These improvements proved popular, DB5 sales of 1063 cars being eclipsed by total DB6 sales of 1,755.
