Early history of unknown, until the 2000's when owned and cared for by long term client of Autosport Designs living in Paris at the time. In 2010, this DB6 Vantage was entrusted to well-known and respected UK Aston Martin marque specialists RS Williams Ltd for a complete restoration. The restoration included various bespoke updates including its 4.7 liter Vantage specification engine, suspension handling kit, telescopic rear shock conversion, bespoke air conditioning and stereo systems. No stone was left unturned, the workmanship and result can be seen today, the DB6 Vantage still in superb-restored condition and with only the slightest patina. The restoration cost at the time was approximately $300,000 and it remains superb throughout.

Having relocated to the United States, New York City, Autosport Designs, Inc. has been honored and continues to maintain and store this DB6 Vantage for the past eight years. Due to a busy schedule, the DB6 was used and enjoyed for weekend day trips, here on Long Island and only in seasonal weather conditions, never in inclement weather and returned to Autosport Designs, for immediate cleaning and storage once again. The client would perform this exact exercise with his DBS, also restored and uprated by RSW, continually alternating from one to the other.

The DB6 Vantage has received its yearly full-service maintenance regardless of use, should anything have been noted on the day trip, it was looked at immediately to keep this DB6 in its current exceptional condition and ready for immediate use at a moment's notice.

On a recent road test, this DB6 Vantage performed without fault and can only be labeled as a breathtaking Aston DB6 in comparison to the factory original specification. The factory would be proud and of course, they are given RSW's reputation and build quality. Today, all systems are working as they should and as originally intended by the factory when delivered new.

Available with complete documentation and ownership history from new, factory books, original factory build sheet, this DB6 Vantage is most certainly one of the finest examples of the model, anywhere.
