DB6 Shooting Brake
The major stylistic alteration introduced with the DB6, in deference to its 007 forefather, was the Kamm-tail rear. So what happens if you take that bluff tail to its logical extreme? You get a slab-reared estate car; the style and elegance of Carrozzeria Touring's archetypal British grand tourer, with a chunkier glasshouse at the rear for transporting your garden waste. A jack of all trades, and master of all too, no?
The example you see here is one of just three built by FLM Panelcraft of London, and was purchased new in 1967 by racing legend Innes Ireland. It's now available to buy from Hexagon Classics... need to get your Alsatian to Monaco in double-quick time? Click here, pronto!
