Of all the cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB6 is arguably the ultimate development of the David Brown “gentleman’s express” concept of a Grand Touring motor car. The DB6 continued the attractive styling of covered headlamp nose, while the back ended in an aero-efficient “Kamm tail” which featured a small upswept spoiler. The chassis was extended 3.75-inches in order to accommodate for the first time a pair of usable rear seats and the body panels were, as always with an Aston, of hand-formed aluminium. The new DB6 also featured enhanced options to include; power-assisted Girling disc brakes and a limited slip differential. The interior coddled the lucky occupants in the finest Connolly hides and Wilton wool carpet – quite the anomaly when one considers that all this limo luxury travelled zero to 60 miles per hour in under seven seconds and had a top speed of 148 miles per hour!
# 3241/R was supplied new on the 10th November 1967 by Rose & Young Ltd, Caterham Surrey to Mr N Jaweather of Footcray, Kent. The last owner, a prominent Italian lawyer & a resident of Rome, kept and enjoyed the Aston as his daily motorcar for over 30 years until Hexagon Classics acquisition in the summer of 2015!
