In 1958, Aston Martin introduced its beloved grand touring sports saloon, the DB4, which came of age in 1963, with the popular DB5. By 1965, the series had reached its ultimate evolution with the DB6, which was produced in Mk 1 form until 1969. In the uprated Vantage state of tune, the Tadek Marek-designed and race-developed inline six-cylinder motor was improved to produce 325 horsepower, while Touring of Milan's celebrated coachwork design, now with its restyled rear section in folded steel rather than in the traditional superleggera method, was stretched to accommodate a wheelbase 3.75 inches longer than its predecessor. The addition of a Kamm-style tail crowned the DB6's ravishing presence. Many enthusiasts reckon this last series of Touring-designed Aston Martins was the best of all, offering the most sublime combination of gentlemanly luxury, refined street manners, and straight-line performance. .
