Now, you’ve got a chance to buy rare 1965 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Shooting Brakes, one of only six ever built. All you have to do is to prepare at least £400,000 ($600,000), since that’s the expected price for the car, and to go to the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Florida, where the inaugural Bonhams automobile auction will be held tomorrow.
Designed on the orders of the company’s owner, David Brown, as a sports car big enough for his dogs and shotguns, this rare Aston Martin is left-hand drive and sports options such as all-aluminium straight six engine, air conditioning and Vantage specifications. It was converted from DB6s by the coachbuilders, Radford.
A Bonhams spokesman said: “This DB6 was clearly used in the UK as it carried a British registration. Close inspection of the car reveals a remarkably original and unspoilt car. The original leather beige interior remains in place and from stem to stern the car has the feeling of being as it was when its conversion was finished, complete with period luggage rack on its roof.”
“As Aston Martin values continue to escalate, it is the rarest variants that are the most sought-after and in that respect, they don’t come much better than this. Vantage, air-conditioning, left hand drive and with space to actually carry a decent sized picnic or hunting equipment this ultra rare Shooting Brake will stand out from the crowd.”
Other interesting offerings, the matching-numbers 1967 Porsche 911 Targa Soft Window Coupe (Estimate $80,000 – $100,000) is notable for its single family ownership and documented restoration by marque specialists Amalfi Racing. The 1970 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Spider Conversion (Estimate $350,000 – $380,000) was delivered new in Italy finished in Marrone Metallizzato, while the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale (Estimate $140,000 – $160,000) comes to the market following a six-year rebuild.
Among nearly 60 European and American automobiles, you’ll certainly find one proper for you. So, hurry up and book your place at Bonhams Boca Raton Auction starts at 10:00am on Saturday, February 23rd with the motor cars to follow at 12:00pm.
