1966 Aston Martin DB6 for auction

Yesterday we reported that a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage Convertible was auctioned for $830.000 and today we are pleased to announce that an even more exclusive 1966 Aston Martin DB6 will be available for auction in Monterey on August 13, 2010.

The Aston Martin DB6 was based off the DB5, but had a larger and more accommodating Grand Touring drive. For some, like legendary crooner Bing Crosby, this was an ideal car to drive around in. In fact, Crosby was the original owner of this exclusive vehicle. The silver gray coupe is powered by a 4 liter OHC straight 6 engine producing 282hp which was made by AM.

The coupe is in excellent condition and still has all of the original interior and original cheery wood steering wheel. The DB6 did receive new paint and chrome about five years ago. It has also received new wheels, tires, and a new brake system.

I Google his name, yes, he’s legendary. I hope there’ll be more celebrity car auctions so that fans can have a chance to see it, or just a glance to feature it in car showcase.

yeah this thing is already up for grabs, just make sure you have enough money to bid for it.

If you’re interested in bidding, or just following along with its sale, it’s lot number S105, and the auction takes place August 13-14, with the Crosby DB6 scheduled to cross the block on Saturday at 2:10 p.m. local time.

This particular 1966 Aston DB6 was previously owned by the legendary Bing Crosby, adding the celebrity touch to a vehicle that really needs nothing to enhance its value.

The DB6 was originally introduced in September 1965 and was built until 1971, which today, still stands as the longest production run for any Aston Martin model.

great, but i hope all those upgrade is authentic Aston martin parts for DB6.
