Produced between 1965 and 1969, the first version of the Aston Martin DB6 was called the Mk I. With its stretched chassis, compared to the DB4 and DB5, as well as its relocated rear axle, the DB6 has additional rear seat space. The superleggera chassis used on Aston Martin’s previous models was dropped with the DB6, giving the car an extra 17 pounds of weight but also increasing the high-speed stability. These changes made the DB6 a particularly comfortable and luxurious Grand Tourer. The DB6 is also a very enjoyable driver’s car with its Tadek Marek-designed engine, featuring a double overhead camshaft 4-Liter. Offering 282 hp of power at 5500 rpm (325 hp with the Vantage option), the Aston Martin DB6 reached an average top speed of 150 mph. Last but not least, the DB6 Coupe is one of the most appreciated designs of its era, thanks to its curved Kamm tail on the rear end, and its split front and rear bumpers.
