DB6/DB6 Volante 1965-1971
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.
