The last year of production for the Aston Martin DB6, 1971 models are very desirable among today’s collectors. This luxurious Grand Tourer was one of its generation’s best driver’s vehicles. Its 4-Liter engine produces 282 hp at 5,500 rpm, reaching an average top speed of 150 mph (up to 155 mph with the 325 hp Vantage engine option). Much emphasis was placed on the aerodynamics for the bodywork of the 1971 Aston Martin DB6 Coupe. The longer wheelbase and the Kammtail design both reduced the rear lift issue that the previous Aston Martin models had, and increased high-speed stability. The car was available with the ZF five-speed manual transmission or the Borg-Warner three-speed automatic.

The 1971 Aston martin DB6 Coupe Mk II first appeared in 1969, characterized by optional fuel injection and flared arches fitting wider tires. The later model used several parts from the newly designed DBS and most critics said that the improvements made it an even better driver’s car than the Mk I. Because only 245 examples were made, the Mk IIs are often worth more than the first models.
