1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mark 2 Vantage
To consolidate the DB6 with the DBS, Aston Martin upgraded both models to use similar parts. This included wider wheels which necessitated the use of small wheel arches on the DB6.
Aston Martin continued to offer both the Vantage high-performance model and the Volante on the Mark 2. The rarest of these was the Vantage Volante with 15 cars being produced.

Of the 240 DB6 Mark IIs built, it is believed that only 71examples were originally specified in left-hand drive. Beyond that, approximately 45 Mark IIs were ordered in the desirable Vantage specification, equipped with either triple Weber carburetors or AE Brico fuel injection. It has been reported that the combination of Vantage specification and left-hand drive – undoubtedly the most sought-after package offered by the factory – was limited to just nine examples, a surprisingly low figure.
