First Registration 1966, Aston Martin DB6 Vantage, MkI
ZF 5-Speed Gearbox
Aston Martin Heritage Trust Certificate
Swiss Road Registration with „Veteran“ entry
In the 1960s, the DB6 was the consequent continuation of its predecessors, the DB4 and DB5. It was built between 1965 and 1970 in 1,327 numbers and only 417 of these were built as the more powerful Vantage version. Despite a lot of styling cues from the DB4 and DB5, its mission was expanded to become a four-passenger car, which involved lengthening the wheelbase by four inches. The windshield was raked and the roof rose about an inch in the rear for more headroom. The fastback design was born. The Tickford-built body terminated in a handsome, curved Kamm tail which wasn’t only aesthetic, but actually increased high-speed stability.
This DB6 Vantage is equipped with the DOHC in-line six-cylinder and produces 325PS instead of 286PS in this version. The extra power was also achieved thanks to three Weber twin carburettors instead of the SU carburettors, among other things. With this power, the Vantage was attested a top speed of over 240 kilometres per hour. The ZF five-speed gearbox was also reserved for the Vantage.
This stunningly beautiful DB6 Vantage is in excellent condition and has been in the same ownership for 12 years. On behalf of this owner, the car was stripped down and very extensively restored. The full restoration is documented with numerous photos. In the process of this restoration, the technical components, including the engine, were completely reconditioned. The Aston Martin Heritage Trust certificate also confirms that the chassis and engine numbers are matching.
