Rare Aston Martin races to £750K

Dorset auction house Duke’s has sold a rare Aston Martin classic car for £754,000

The convertible DB6 Vantage Volante was previously owned by Sandra Bernstein, the wife of media entrepreneur Sidney Bernstein. It had belonged to the family since it was bought by Mrs Berstein in 1968 and, despite its age, only has a recorded mileage of just 38,833.

The dark blue Aston Martin, famously the car marque of choice for James Bond,  is one of just 29 produced, making it, as Duke’s said, “one of the rarest post-war Aston Martins”. The auction house said the car was “so special due to its single family ownership and its remarkable originality.”
