- Fitted with a DB4 ‘pre-production’ engine
- Upgraded transmission and braking because of the serious improved power
- Absolutely superb design
- Wonderful color combination (Deep Carriage Green with Sea Green contrast roof, with red leather interior). Matching colors.

David Brown had a good eye for styling. Even his tractors were looking good.

The shape is extremely elegant and because of the chrome accents on the roof for example very chic.

 

CONDITION EXTERIOR

Currently, the Aston presents in an outstanding condition exterior wise. Due to the investment in the car at Aston Martin Works the car looks fabulous. The car has an excellent paint with a beautiful deep shine. The panel fit is just superb and probably nicer then new. The chrome is in excellent condition as well. All exterior emblems are still fitted on the car. The chrome wired wheels are new so exterior wise this car is pristine and in a show condition.

 

 

CONDITION INTERIOR

The interior of the Aston is just superb. The former owner is a very serious Aston Martin collector with a lot of knowledge about the brand. He knows how to care for his cars and what to do with them. Money is not an issue so he could have easily decided to renew the entire interior. Luckily he didn’t as the Aston still carries its original leather on the seats. An absolute unique appearance as most cars have a renewed interior. The carpet has been renewed over the years and is in period correct material. The interior is in an absolute unique and beautiful condition. All meters are functioning properly and no attention is needed.

 

DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Driving this Aston is fantastic. Due to the powerful engine the car gives a great sensation. The engine starts with a push on the button and the car is very well tuned and set. Brakes are working effectively, gearbox is shifting easy and the steering is rather straight for a DB2. Altogether a very special car with an impressive history which has very recently been restored/prepared by Aston Martin Works and brought to a very high level.

 

Car currently holds a UK registration.

Car comes with a large historical file, including factory record, restoration invoices and photos, instruction book, a collector’s dream.
