The follow up to the DB5, the classic DB6 focused on aerodynamic improvements, because the DB6 was the first Aston to enter a wind tunnel. The DB6 was slightly prettier and 9 m.p.h. faster than its predecessor. The speed came from a redesigned back end that reduced drag and helped the car stick to the road.
The Grand Tourer could hold all its passengers in comfort with improved leg and head room.
