A 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage was sold for £131,420 (RM723,097) at the Bonhams Harrogate Sale.
A fierce bidding war for the car broke out between online buyers and those in the actual room, but it was an overseas buyer from China who won the bid.
The sports saloon, chassis number 2489/R, is described as a ‘barn find’ due to the fact it has not been used since the 1990s by its previous owner, a garage proprietor in the far north of Scotland. It was sold as a restoration project.
James Knight, Bonhams group motoring director, said, “The demand for Astons, and those that require extensive restoration – known as barn discoveries – is still very much evident.
“The strong result was achieved after a protracted bidding contest, with the online bidder succeeding over representation in the room.”
Other highlights from the sale that totalled more than £1,000,000 (RM5,500,000) and saw 91% of lots sold, including a 1949 Triumph Roadster that was featured in the BBC series, Bergerac, and sold for £23,000 (RM126,550).
