Coupe
Chassis #: DB63232R
High bid of $130,000 at 2010 RM Auctions - Sports & Classics of Monterey. (did not sell)
Sold for $145,750 at 2011 Automobiles of Arizona by RM Auctions.
Standard DB6 features included adjustable shock absorbers, electric window lifts, power-assisted Girling four-wheel disc brakes, a 'Power-Lok' limited-slip differential, a Becker AM/FM radio with a power antenna and wire-spoke wheels, while ZF power steering and a Webasto sunroof were optional.

The 3995cc DOHC inline-six cylinder engine fitted with triple SU carburetors offered 282 horsepower and could propel the DB6 from rest to 60mph in about six seconds. Top speed was in the neighborhood of 150 mph. It total, just 1,321 DB6 coupes were built between 1965 and 1970.

This DB6 has been given a recent restoration and refinished in its original color of Dubonnet Red, and a complete new interior in natural tan Garrett leather. The optional Webasto sunroof was restored, a new stainless-steel exhaust system was installed, the bright-work was re-plated, and a full service was completed. Comprehensive mechanical work included a rebuild of the distributor and SU carburetors, a brake system overhaul including a power-booster rebuild, hydraulic lines replaced as required, a cooling system service performed with all hoses replaced and gearbox service.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at RM Auctions' Arizona sale where it was estimated to sell for $175,000 - $200,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $145,750 including buyer's premium.
