VANTAGE - - The Specialist 22gt Racing -

SPEC­I­FI­CA­TION En­gine 3995cc, in-line 6 Power 282bhp @ 5500rpm Torque 288lb ft @ 3850rpm 0-60mph 8.4sec Top speed 150mph A longer wheel­base and ex­tended roofline – end­ing in the distinc­tive cut-off ‘Kamm’ tail – made the DB6 a de­cent four-seater, while its slightly heav­ier build, softer ride and the op­tions of an au­to­matic gear­box and air-con­di­tion­ing showed that the DB line was mov­ing into GT ter­ri­tory. The base en­gine was car­ried over from the DB5, though the Van­tage now pro­duced a claimed 325bhp. The Mk2, which ar­rived in July 1969, had flared whee­larches over its wider wheels. To­tal DB6 pro­duc­tion: 1967.
