The 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Convertible (or Volante as Aston Martin names its Convertible models) is a front engine, rear wheel drive sports touring vehicle. Launched in October 1965 and produced until August 1969, the Mk I was the first version of the Aston Martin DB6. Tadek Marek designed the DB6’s double overhead camshaft engine, which developed 282 hp of power at 5500 rpm. The DB6 Convertible was also made available with the Vantage engine option, which increased the horsepower to 325, enabling the car to reach a top speed of 155 mph. Featuring split front and rear bumpers, as well as the rear end curved Kamm tail, the design of the DB6 Convertible is very aesthetically pleasing both then and now. Additionally, the high-speed stability of the DB6 improved largely over its predecessors, thanks to its aerodynamic upgrades.

Buying a 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Convertible is a great experience. Very few models were produced, making the Volante a very desirable vehicle to Aston Martin enthusiasts. A number of modifications were made available to tailor the vehicle to the owner’s special needs, such as power steering and air conditioning options. Finding an example that is filled with factory options can certainly increase the value in today’s market. Although aluminum was still used for the panels, the superleggera construction was dropped with the DB6 and a more common chassis was used.
