  • 87111 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' London event, 24 October 2019. Estimate:£250,000 - £300,000 In single ownership for over 30 yearsOne of just 46 DB6 Mk 2s originally fitted with AE Brico fuel injection; converted to Vantage specificationReading just 28,275 milesManual gearbox, matching numbers By 1969 Aston Martin was winding down production on the DB6. As attention turned towards the newer, more modern-looking DBS, Aston Martin unveiled a final swan songthe DB6 Mk 2. Mechanically, the Mk 2 was largely unchanged from its predecessor; the Borg & Beck clutch plate was replaced with a 10.5-inch version, and the previously optional power-assisted steering was now fitted as standard. Both the ZF five-speed manual gearbox and the automatic transmission were available, as was Aston Martins Vantage engine. Visually, the new Mk 2 benefitted from several DBS components and upgrades whilst distinctively improving the look of the DB6 with attractive flared arches, which accommodated the wider 8.15×15-inch Avon wheels. Alongside the now-familiar Vantage engine, a new option of Brico fuel injection was offered and fitted to just 46 cars. One of those rare cars is offered here, as confirmed by the build sheet on record. According to correspondence on file from previous owners, DB6MK2FI/4231/R was modified many years ago to the triple-Weber-carburetor full Vantage specification. The history file suggests this DB6 Mk 2 was purchased new by Robin Hamilton, the famous Aston Martin racing driver notorious for his DBS V8 and Nimrod Group C development. The car passed to a further three private owners until it was discovered by the current family custodians. It was purchased at Hyde Vale by the current owners in 1988 at 26,962 miles. Although used sparingly by the owner, himself a Rolls-Royce concours judge, invoices on file report repairs to the bodywork, including outriggers and sills, and subsequent consistent upkeep throughout the next three decades in line with the exacting standards of the owner. Finished in stunning Tudor Green metallic paintwork, the car has had a very recent mechanical recommissioning with all perishable items being replaced. A service was carried out, replacing all fluids, and the engine has been adjusted to ensure a smooth idle. A fresh MOT has also been carried out with no advisories to ensure peace of mind for the next owner, along with a new battery and four new 72-spoke MWS chrome wire wheels and correct Avon 205VR15 tyres. The engine bay presents in good order, and the interior is in superbly original condition, in keeping with a well-cared-for, low-mileage example.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
