*One of only 46 fuel-injected examples made
*Extensively upgraded in 2007
*Present ownership since 2009


Distinguishable by its flared wheelarches and DBS wheels, the DB6 Mark 2 came with power-assisted steering as standard and could be ordered with AE Brico electronic fuel injection. When DB6 Mark 2 production ceased in 1970, a total of 245 had been made, of which only 46 left the factory fitted with the optional fuel injection like this example.
Originally an automatic transmission model, '4161/R' was built for the UK market and despatched from the factory on 14th October 1970 to Aston Distributors. Its original colour scheme was Verde Acqua with pigskin interior trim. The current owner purchased the DB6 18th November 2009 from Aston Workshop, which a couple of years earlier had carried out extensive upgrades for the car's then owner, Mr Neal Mercer of Buckinghamshire. Works carried out include enlarging the engine to 4.2 litres capacity and rebuilding it with up-rated camshafts and a special high-performance crankshaft and con-rods, while the cylinder head was ported, gas-flowed and fitted with larger valves at the same time. In addition, the car was fitted with an up-rated water pump and up-rated starter motor, while the cooling system was improved by installing an aluminium radiator. Other aspects receiving attention included the dashboard (lighting upgraded); headlining (renewed); seat belts (added in rear); and the engine bay (tidied up). One of the rarer of the David Brown-era Aston Martins, this DB6 Mark 2 FI is offered with Aston Workshop's bill for £45,289; a (part) V5C document (subject to re-application as the motor car was exported); and a copy of the 2009 sales invoice.
This rare and desirable MK2 has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note this Lot is subject to UK import tax at the reduced rate of 5% if it is to remain in the UK.
