The first version of the DB6, called the Mk I, was produced from 1965 to 1969. In August 1969, the Mk II was launched, with revised seats and flared wheel arches to fit the wider tires also used on the Aston Martin DBS. The introduction of an optional AE Brico electronic fuel injection and the standard power steering made the new version especially nice to drive, and is quite popular with collectors today. The design of the Aston Martin DB6 was close to those of the DB4 and DB5, its main differences being the longer wheelbase, split bumpers and Kamm-style tail. The aerodynamics were also greatly improved, giving the car more stability at high speed, which was particularly valuable with an average top speed of 150 mph.
