The Aston Martin DB6 was launched at the London Motor Show in 1965. The DB6 features revised aerodynamics over the DB4 and DB5, as well as more inside room for passengers, especially in the rear. The upgrades made over the previous models resulted in a comfortable and luxurious Grand Tourer, with an improved high-speed stability. Designed by the famous Tadek Marek, the engine of the DB6 produces 282 hp for the standard version, and up to 325 hp with the Vantage engine option. Power steering and air conditioning also came as options, for more comfort. Very few Convertible examples of the DB6 were produced, making the DB6 Volante (Aston Martin’s term for Convertible) a very desirable classic in today’s market.

When buying a classic vehicle, you must be aware of a certain number of items to inspect. One thing to know about the 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Convertible is that the car’s main enemy is rust as most of the vehicles built in the 1960’s. As the Superleggera construction was dropped after the DB5, the chassis of the DB6 uses steel body panels in addition to the aluminum parts. Those two materials put together are very prone to rust, and it is important that you have a quality pre-purchase inspection to fully understand the extent of any rust damage prior to purchase. Meanwhile some examples have been well restored; a pre-purchase inspection is still highly recommended to ensure the work was top quality and will last a lifetime.
