Luxurious grand touring and race-inspired sports cars are Aston Martin’s legacy, with or without James Bond. The 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Coupe is a classy, yet sleek two door providing a dignified and spirited experience.
Aston Martin’s DB6 is the final installment of the historic classic-era DB series. Until the arrival of the modern DB7 in the early 90s, Aston Martin kept the iconic series on hiatus for decades. Collectors and enthusiasts laud the DB6 for its functional aerodynamic body design, but this beautiful car would look just as good on a fashion runway.
With its iconic styling, this car always turns heads. This is not the kind of vintage automobile you see every day. Driving enthusiasts, however, point to the DB6’s sporty performance as the main attraction, despite being appreciative of its seductive design.
Under the hood, or bonnet, is a dual overhead cam (DOHC) straight 6 cylinder engine capable of producing 282 brake horsepower with 280 pound-feet of torque. This is a very powerful 6 cylinder engine for the year 1967. Some factory options available on later models produced even more horsepower.
Combining fashionable elegance with racing performance is the Aston Martin way. Their luxurious sports cars still carry that heritage today, but timeless classics such as the DB6 paved the way. Rolling out the red carpet for an Aston Martin is prestige well-earned by the independent British automaker.
This particular example features a gorgeous Dubonnet red exterior paint finish with a black interior. A 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive handles the dirty work of shifting gears. Best of all, it is available and looking for a new owner.
More details regarding the history of this specific beauty are available on the Weekend Heroes website. Complete service history dating back to 1991 is also readily available. Serious buyers may set an appointment to see the car in person, in Munich, Germany. With only 1,788 DB6 models ever produced from 1965 to 1970, the opportunity to add one to your collection is rare.
You may never become 007, but driving any vintage Aston Martin will certainly make you feel like a top-secret intelligence agent. Getting behind the wheel of this Coupe may be your one chance to see if you have what it takes.
