Coupe
Chassis #: DB6MK2/4214/LC
Engine # 400/4536/VC
Sold for $700,000 at 2015 RM Sotheby's : Amelia Island.
The Aston Martin DB6 arrived in late 1965, and it brought with it an improvement to comfort and practicality over the DB5. The chassis grew by 3.75 inches, and the rear axle was relocated in order to create additional cabin space for two rear seats. Even with these extensive changes, the DB6 only weighed 18 pounds more than the DB5.

In the front, the Aston Martin DB6 had a similar design to the car it succeeded. Towards the back were numerous differences, starting with a higher and more vertical windshield and a slightly raised roofline, which allowed for additional interior headroom. Also in the back was a Kamm-style tail at the rear in an effort to provide additional downforce. Inside were several additional small changes, with the most notable being redesigned and more supportive rear seats.

The Aston Martin DB6 was in production for four years before an updated version was released, the MK II. The updated version was given slightly flared wheel arches over the original DB6, which allowed for the larger wheels and tires. Aston Martin also offered AE Brico fuel injection for an option on the DB6 Mk II; the Weber carburetors remained as standard equipment. For customers seeking more, they could upgrade to Vantage specification. With a higher compression ratio, along with several other improvements, horsepower was raised from 282 brake horsepower to 325 brake horsepower.

This DB6 is a MKII example that was originally delivered to Canada. Allegedly, this is one of the final DB6s built. The car left the factory finished in Aluminum silver paint and trimmed in Dark Blue Connolly leather with a grey headliner. The car received several optional accessories, including front and rear seat belts, two wing mirrors, a pair of Lucas driving lights, and a Bosch New Yorker radio. Additionally, the car was given a rare factory Coolaire air conditioning system.

This car was purchased new by Oskar Rajsky, of My Lord Shirt Manufacturing Company. Mr. Rajsky collected the car from the factory directly and drove the car around Europe for a few weeks of vacation. The car was then shipped to Canada and delivered back to him through Performance Centre, of Toronto, Ontario, on May 15, 1970.

The car has remained in Rajsky's care in the Toronto area and has never been given a restoration, except for just one repaint in its original color. The interior is completely original.
