Aston DB6 tops H&H's results... again

| 10 Aug 2012

H&H continued its run of incredible Aston Martin DB6 results at its Donnington Priory sale on 8 August.

Topping the list was a 1967 example that, having been rebuilt from scratch with an uprated engine and covering only 700 miles since, made a heady £164,640.

That was some way ahead of the second DB6 contender, but, given the condition of the car, the £128,800 achieved for the scruffy non-runner, one owner for the past 38 years MkI Vantage was almost more impressive.

Bargain of the sale, if a price of £80,640 can ever be considered a 'bargain', was a gorgeous left-hand-drive 1948 Jaguar MkIV drophead with a cupboard full of concours awards and a £130,000 restoration under its belt.

The cute award definitely went to a late-1920s Austin Seven pick-up, but cute didn't come cheap when it sold for a strong £13,440.
