Looking at Luxury

Although your home is the most important purchase you will make in your life, Housing Japan understands that it is only one element of fine-living here in Tokyo. To enrich the offers we present to our clients, we have begun a program of introducing select products from renowned luxury brands.

We begin with this, a prime example of vintage automotive art, the Aston Martin DB6 Volante.

Classic cars are extraordinarily valuable for a number of reasons. Foremost of which is that they are, quite simply, very beautiful. Second to that however, is their rarity. Examples like this Aston Martin were hand made, to a small customer base, and so those that remain are limited in number and extremely hard to find. They also represent the pinnacle of human achievement, in terms of design, elegance and performance.

As the years go by, demand and interest for these rare items only increases.

Unquestionably elegant, this Aston Marin DB6 Mk2 Volante embodies the very class and style that the British brand is world-famous for. Built between July 1969 and November 1970, it is a car that is synonymous with royalty from when the Prince of Wales received one on his 21st birthday that he still owns to this day.

Only 38 examples of this car were ever made, with the rarity of this particular model being emphasised further by its original colour combination of Goodwood Green with a Beige interior that was meticulously crafted during a full restoration by Aston Martin Works.

One of only a few to have been restored at the Aston Martin Works, Newport Pagnell, where it was originally built, this truly special car operates to an exceptional standard, from the engine to the luxuries of an electrically powered roof that was fitted as standard.

The car is available to view by apoitment at the Aston Martin brand center in Aoyama.

Currently for sale, it is priced at £1.5m (transaction must be conducted in pounds sterling).
