Aston Martin owner, David Brown, was widely known for being quite interested in motor racing. As such, the first Aston Martin DB2 models were actually designed for the track, and ran competitively and reliably in a variety of races including the Le Mans. In fact, three cars were entered at Le Mans in 1950, finishing first and second in class, as well as fifth and sixth overall. These were exciting times for Aston Martin; such successes would be the opening chapter of Aston Martin’s illustrious racing history. First launched to the public at the New York Motor Show of 1950, the 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe would reveal a 2.6L DOHC inline six-cylinder engine that was acquired during the acquisition of the Lagonda company. Depending on the model’s specific configuration, these early DB2 classics could produce more than 120hp. In fact, a DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe tested in 1950 by the British Magazine, The Motor, reported that the DB2 had a top speed of 116.4mph and could accelerate from 1-60mph in just 11.2 seconds. One thing we can all agree on is that the classic 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe is certainly a beautiful and exceptional example of early 1950’s automotive design and manufacturing. With little more than 400 manufactured in total, this rare classic will make an excellent showpiece for your collection.
