Aston DB6 leads successful day for Historics


A 1967 Aston Martin DB6 made £123,200 as Historics’ 1 June sale netted £1.58million at Brooklands.

The two-owner, automatic GT had apparently covered just 130 miles in the past decade.

British classics performed well, with a number of Jaguars going under the hammer.

They included a 1959 XK150S coupé (£48,160), plus two E-type Roadsters: a 1974 Series 3 (£44,800) and a 1966 Series 1 (£112,000) shown below.

In front of a record crowd, the Jaguars contributed to a 72% sale rate from the 110 cars that found new homes.

Models such as a rare 1961 Lenham-Healey Six  (£20,720), a fastidiously maintained 1972 MGB GT (£10,500) and a 1965 Lotus Seven (£5-10,000) were also snapped up.

A pair of 1957 Mercedes-Benz 190SLs did their bit, too, selling for £61,600 and £62,720.

But it was Porsche that proved to be the marque of the moment, with every example on offer selling, covering everything from a barn-find 1970 911T (£26,880) to a 1980 911SC (£15,680).
