|ASTON MARTIN DB2 VANTAGE, PRISTINE CONDITION WITH JUST REBUILD ENGINE!|
The Aston Martin DB2 was shown at the public at the New York Motor Show of 1950.
This was not the first time that the public could see this very special cars. 3 examples had raced at the grueling 24 Hours of LeMans.
Unfortunately 1 of the three cars was involved by a fatal accident.
The DB2 has been designed by Frank Freeley and was initially built as a two-seater touring car. It was the first real production car for Aston Martin and the new price of the DB2 was in those years around 1.600,- ponds.
The DB1, the car were the DB2 was based on was the first Aston which had the initials of David Brown (the owner at that time) as model name.
The production designs were very similar to the vehicles which raced at Le Mans. The cars had the same engine which was a W.O. Bentley designed Lagonda six-cylinder engine which produces standard 115 horsepower. An optional Vantage upgrade increased the engine power to 125 horsepower.
During the production period which was from 1950 through 1953 only 441 examples were produced.
This specific Aston Martin DB2 Vantage with chassis number LML/50/240 has just arrived. The condition of the car is extremely nice. We have not had an Aston Martin DB2 which was so nicely restored and painted. The interior of the car shows some patina , from the outside the car is extremely nice. The door fittings as well as the bonnet fitting is always a problem with an Aston Martin. These cars have this problems since new and it is nothing to worry about but this example has very nice fittings overall.
The car has been completely restored by a punctual German who needed to make one of the nicest Aston Martin DB2’s in the world.
After the car was restored, it raced the Mille Miglia in 2000 and was sold to a friend of us in Germany who again sold it to a German customer.
We were able to buy this car from him and decided to do a complete engine rebuild. This engine rebuild is expected to be finished very soon.
When the engine rebuild is finished, this extremely nice example with its original Vantage engine is ready to subscribe again for the World's Greatest Road race in the world, the Mille Miglia. Or one can just have fun with the car on an ordinary sunday or one can put it in a corner as investment.
The Aston Martin comes with a FIVA document.
