Extremely late-model Aston Martin DB6 Volante is set to be sold this month
A highly original Aston Martin DB6 Mk1 Volante Vantage is set to be sold later this summer. One of just 29 ever built, the 1969 Aston is believed to be the last Volante-spec DB6 to leave the factory, and will headline the auction list for this Summer's Barons auction at Sandown Park on 28 July.
The convertible Aston has been under single-ownership since 1981. In that time the car is said to have been used sparingly, and only ever in the dry. It has an estimated sale price of £500,000-£750,000.
Elsewhere on the auction list so far is a 1987 Ford Escort RS Turbo, complete with all the origjnal fittings and an upgraded stainless steel Scorpion exhaust. The car is one of the most popular from the late 1980s hot-hatch golden era, and is expected to fetch between £5000-£7000.
Barons’ director Tony Cavell said, 'We are very excited to have the remarkable Aston Martin consigned to the sale, and the reaction has already been outstanding, with a significant amount of interest shown in the car.'
A 1961 Facel Vega, 1989 Porsche 911, and a rare 1929 Renault 6NN Torpedo are also part of the consignment, with the latter set to fetch up to £12,000.
