The 1966 DB6 replaced the DB5 and was a much updated car. Underneath, out went the steel platform construction and in came a modern monocoque design with steel inner panels and floorpan covered with the aluminium body. Though longer by 3.7 inches (94mm) in the wheelbase, which gave a slightly better ride quality, the DB6 used the same suspension layout as the DB5 with double wishbones at the front and a Watts linkage/trailing arm live axle rear. The engine was also the DB5's, but slightly up in power especially in Vantage form which had 325bhp (242kW). While similar in the nose, the DB6 had a distinct cut-off rear which was accentuated by a raised rear lip which doubled as a spoiler. It made the car more aerodynamic, increasing downforce and high speed stability. The interior had Wilton carpet, leather seats, multiple gauges and a wood/aluminium wheel.
