Aston Martin Db6   Red   Fvl (1966)

Following on from the success of the DB5, the DB6 first entered production in 1965 and was to run well into 1970, being produced side-by-side with the DBS at the Newport Pagnell factory. DB6 MK2 introduced in 1969, featuring flared wheel arches and standard power steering.

The DB6 bodywork had a new tail design, offering improved aerodynamics and also had a revised rear 1/4 windows and a higher rear roof line. Options now included power steering (on MK1 cars), air conditioning, automatic transmission, limited slip differential and a 325bhp Vantage engine option.

A convertible body style was also offered, as was the normal Aston tradition, although now called "Volante", a name still used by the company today. Early (1965-1966) DB6 Volantes had a "short chassis" body, only 37 were produced and are distinguished by a shorter tail. A handful of "Shooting Brakes" were also produced by British coachbuilder Harold Radford.
