With the introduction of the DB6, Aston Martin decided to drop the superleggera chassis previously used on the DB4 and DB5, in favor of a 3.75 inch-longer and 17 pound-heavier, more common fabrication. This change made for a more spacious and comfortable car, with increased high-speed stability. 1969 was the last year of production for the first version of the DB6, named Mk I. The Mk II version was announced in August and featured standard power steering as well as distinct flares on front and rear wheel arches, accommodating the DBS wider tires. Another difference was the electronic fuel-injection option made available, in alliance with the greater compression ratio cylinder head. Powered by a 4-Liter, 282 hp engine with 6 cylinders in line, the DB6 can reach an average top speed of 150 mph and was quite popular during its time.
Aston Martin didn’t make an exception of the Aston Martin DB6 when it comes to its well-known Vantage option. Increasing the horsepower up to 325, as well as the top speed to a maximum of 155 mph, the Aston Martin DB6 with the Vantage engine specifications make up for a very high performance vehicle for that time. Today, the Vantage edition is highly sought-after thanks to its extra power and performance.
