History of the Aston Martin DB2
The Aston Martin DB2 is sports car produced between 1950 and 1953 at only 411 examples. The model was presented at the 1950 New York Auto Show. It was the first car made under the supervision of David Brown after the purchase of Lagonda company by Aston Martin in order to have a better engine (DB stands for David Brown).
In 1950, Aston Martin offered a Vantage specification like this example with larger carburetors and higher compression ratio (125 hp). The DB2 participated in Le Mans in 1949 and 1950 with success (1950 1st & 2nd in the 3 litre class).
This Aston Martin DB2 has an 2.6-liter inline six engine (still original but restored in 2005). The Coupé version was tested in 1950 by the English magazine The Motor, it could reach a top speed of 187 kmh and 100 kmh in 11,2 seconds.
It has still its original color the Post Office Red (English Post Office, for sure) over a black leather with red piping interior. Very nice car...
