Selling An Aston Martin DB6 Mk II
Rear wheel drive with a front engine, the new generation of Aston Martin DB6 was launched in August 1969 as the Mk II. Under the hood, a 6-cylinder double overhead camshaft was naturally aspirated, a featured two valves per cylinder and a capacity of 4 Liters. Quite powerful with 282hp at 5,500 rpm, the Aston Martin DB6 Mk II boasts a maximum speed of 150mph. Longer than the previous Aston Martin DB4 and DB5, the new wheelbase meant more luggage space, inside room and comfort for drivers and passengers. The overall weight of the vehicle wasn’t badly affected by these changes, with only an extra 17 pounds (the weight was quoted at 3,300 lbs for the Coupe model) being added. Previously used on the DB4 and DB6 models, the superleggera construction technique was dropped with the DB6. As a result, the steel tubing underneath was substituted for more common folding metal, although aluminum was still used on the panels .The DB6 Mk II’s design is iconic; with flared fenders to accommodate the wider DBS-style tires and the aerodynamically efficient Kamm tail.
Aston Martin DB6 Mk II Seller’s Guide
With standard power steering as well as several other options (such as air conditioning, the AE Brico electronic fuel injection and a sunroof for the Coupe model), the Aston Martin DB6 Mk II was a perfected version of the already well-appreciated Mk I. When the Mk II was released, the all-new DBS was being produced and some of the newly designed parts were used for the DB6. Perpetuating the tradition, Aston Martin made the Vantage engine option available for the DB6 Mark II. This upgraded unit was equipped with three Weber carburetors and higher compression ratio cylinder head. The Vantage specs boosted the horsepower up to 325, making the DB6 one of the fastest and most efficient vehicles of the era.
