1953 Aston Martin DB2 Vantage
Location: United Kingdom
Mille Miglia Eligible.
The Aston Martin DB2 Sports Car debuted at the April 1950 New York motor show and remained in production until 1953 with 411 cars being produced. Available in either a two seat Coupe or Convertible form. Power came from Aston Martin Lagonda’s twin overhead camshaft 2.6 litre six cylinder engine which produced an impressive 125bhp. This in turn would propel the car from 0-60mph in just over 11 secs and onto 116mph.
The Aston Martin DB2 Vantage offered here at Autostorico is finished in Maroon Red with Red leather interior. This original RHD example was supplied new to its first owner in 1953 by Aston Martin, Wimborne, Dorset. Chassis No: LML/50/213 spent its early years in Belgium before being shipped to North America returning to the UK in 2013, when its current owner an avid Aston Martin fan purchased it. Since then the car has been in regular use and has been maintained to the highest possible standard, with recent works carried out by Trinity Engineering totalling £40,000.
Supplied with an extensive history file including current V5 registration document, previous MOT’s and copy of original build sheet and other related material.
