In August 1969, just before the introduction of the all new DBSV8, the last in a long line of classic Aston Martin grand touring cars was announced ľ the DB6 Mark II.

An improvement on the well-received DB6, the Mark II was equipped with slight fender flares on both the front and rear wheel arches to accommodate the new DBS sized wire wheels and tires, this also gave the DB6 MK II a wider appearance. For the interior, the Mark II received more comfortable seats, sourced from the DBS, making an already capable grand touring car even more appealing.

Already rare in original in left-hand drive form, this DB6 Mk 2 is even for rare and desirable being one of only NINE examples produced in original LHD with 325 hp Vantage specification.
Originally delivered to Switzerland, this rare left-hand-drive Aston Martin was completed at the Newport Pagnell Works on October 3, 1969. According to factory records, the Mark 2 was first shipped to Dr. Josef Arpad Von Habsburg in Moillesulaz, Switzerland, with Perrin Importateur serving as the agent. It has been reported that the rare Mark 2 Vantage remained in Europe for many years, eventually joining a prominent Aston Martin collection in Belgium. In the late 1990s, the DB6 was imported to the US and has since been cared for by dedicated East Coast Aston Martin enthusiasts. Known to the AMOC, is received first place in the 1999 AMOC Lime Rock Concours and today remains in this excellent show condition.

This DB6 Mk 2 was restored to a high standard and has recently benefitted from some sympathetic cosmetic freshening. This DB6 is exceptional throughout and a welcomed addition to any garage or collection. It is the ultimate mechanical specification, preferred original color combination and last and ultimate specification of the series.

It is not every day that one comes across such an attractive and ideally optioned example. This DB6 Mk 2 is ready for immediate road use or show and will serve as an excellent long-term investment.
