While in Florida, the car featured in the Antique Automobile Club of America’s Concours d’Elegance, held in Orange Park, Florida, securing the overall victory in the sports car class in 1986.
The car was repatriated in 1987 when it was bought by a Mr Peter Bennett of Cheshire. In 1993, a Mr Phillip Guy instructed a senior figure at Aston Martin to source the best DB6 that he could find.
