1970/H ASTON MARTIN DB6 MK2 Volante
Tom Hartley Jnr
The DB6 MK2 Volante is the rarest of all DB convertibles, with only 38 examples ever being produced. Much more refined than its DB4 and DB5 predecessors, benefiting from power steering along with a 5th gear. With its flared arches and wider wheels it's much prettier than the MK1 in addition the seats were upgraded with vastly improved support. The best known owner of these very rare cars is HRH The Prince of Wales who has retained his example from new and in recent years used as the mode of transport by Prince William and Princess Kate to leave Buckingham Palace on their wedding day. With the exception of His Royal Highnesses car, the example we are offering here must be the very best of them all, with only 3 owners and 24,089 from new. Recently stripped to bare metal and repainted in its original colour of Silver Birch by the best Aston restorers in the business and the original engine uprated to R.S. Williams revered 4.7 litre specification. In addition the chrome has been re-plated and the roof replaced using the correct Everflex material. However the leather trim remains original and is maybe the best we have ever seen on a car of this age, a true testament to the cars little use since new. Complete with its original tonneau cover, tool kit, instruction booklet, original build sheet plus a host of old MOT's. A very special example that would enhance even the finest of Aston Martin collections!
