Recognisably related to the Touring-styled DB4 of 1958, the DB6 abandoned the Superleggera body structure of its predecessors in favour of conventional steel fabrication. The wheelbase was now 4" longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with more-raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows. Opening front quarter lights made a re-appearance, but the major change was at the rear where a Kamm-style tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds.


The Tadek Marek-designed six-cylinder engine had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5, and remained unchanged. Power output on triple SU carburettors was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, and for the first time, there was optional power-assisted steering. Introduced in July 1969, the DB6 Mark 2 incorporated many components shared with the new DBS, most obviously the latter's wider wheels, which necessitated flaring the front and rear wheel arches. All Mark 2 Vantages came with the highest (325bhp) 'C' state of tune, while all cars benefited from power-assisted steering as standard. Production lasted until November 1970, during which time only 240 DB6 Mark 2s were manufactured, 71 of which were to Vantage specification.
