Aston Martin - DB6 Superleggera - 1966

[ translate ]

Step into an era of British luxury and refinement with our exceptional 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Sport Saloon. This rare find embodies the ultimate embodiment of the legendary DB series, a timeless symbol of craftsmanship, style and performance. Be enchanted by its charm as we take you on a journey through the history of this beautiful car.
\r
In 1947, David Brown acquired Aston Martin, and his designs are responsible for the company's post-war success. In 1957 he launched the "DB" series, which offered superior handling and power over most competitors, and is recognized as one of the most ingenious designs of its era. The "supperleggera" tag, meaning super light, was partly derived from the DB4's aluminum body panels.
\r
Only 1,504 copies of the DB6 were made between 1965 and 1970. They embody the peak of David Brown's mesmerizing expression of the ultimate "gentleman's touring" car. The design was a development and maturation of ideas from the DB4GT and DB5, using an extended chassis to provide more space for rear passengers. Instead of the rounded rear of the DB5, the DB6 introduced an integrated rear spoiler, the Kamm tail.
\r
The Aston Martins were expertly hand built by craftsmen, each car taking them approximately 2900 hours to build, hence the small number of cars produced. The DB6 was the pinnacle of the DB series, a fusion of style and performance that epitomizes the era. With the alchemy of a lightweight body, formidable engine, rugged stance and optimum handling, it was a highly evolved expression of Aston Martin's proud racing tradition and one of the ultimate sports cars of its era.
\r
This 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Sport Saloon is a well-equipped, left-hand drive, matching-numbers factory example with an automatic transmission. Sourced from the Silver Birch factory over dark blue Connolly skins. According to copies of the factory records, this DB6 was purchased new in February 1966 by Larry Wirth of Kingston, Jamaica.
\r
At the time, Larry Wirth, an art collector and patron, already had his collection in mind, which would become one of the pillars of the National Gallery of Jamaica. But in 1966 Wirth was focused on his new DB6. Options include Normal Air Conditioning engine ventilation system, chrome wheels, heated rear window, Fiam horns with changeover switch, Bosch Kohn TR radio, electrically operated antenna, 3-ear knock-offs, dual Britax three-point seat belts, Marchal driving lights and 12 pints of antifreeze . The Aston was delivered on February 26, 1966. It is not documented how long Wirth would keep the Aston, but factory records seem to indicate that he had it at least until June 1971.
\r
By 2006, the California Aston was in the collection of David Segura in Valencia. The previous owner acquired the car in 2010 and only a handful of miles have been added over the past 13 years, indicating that the car has been largely on static display.
\r
This Aston Martin also has a Dutch license plate and a new MOT inspection (without expiry date due to the respectable age of 58 years) so that you can enjoy this car without any worries this coming summer.
