Following on from the success of the Aston Martin DB5, the DB6 first entered production in 1965 and was to run well into 1970, being produced side-by-side with the DBS at the Newport Pagnell factory in the UK. The DB6 MK2 was introduced in 1969, featuring flared wheel arches and standard power steering.
A convertible body style was also offered, as was the normal Aston tradition, although now called “Volante”, a name still used by the company today. Early DB6 Volantes had a short chassis body, only 37 were produced and are distinguished by a shorter tail. A handful of 'Shooting Brakes' were also produced by British coachbuilder Harold Radford.
