Produced by Aston Martin between 1950 and 1953, the classic Aston Martin DB2 was an exceptional post-war sports car that achieved notable success in motorsport especially at Le Mans. First unveiled as a standard Coupe, a Drophead Coupe convertible would also become available. Praised for offering all the comforts of a highway touring car while boasting the performance of a Le Mans racecar, the only comparable car of the era would be the Jaguar XK120. It is said that more than 100 of the Aston Martin DB2 cars were ordered during its release at the 1950 New York Motor Show. This demand would remain throughout the DB2’s short production; orders would come in as fast as Aston Martin could produce them. Although little would change from year to year, the 1952 Aston Martin DB2 would see a new front grille. Because these classics were meticulously made and customized to the buyer’s needs, it is vitally important that you authenticate any potential purchase. In total, little more than 400 examples of the classic DB2 were ever made. While there are DB2 registers online, it is hard to gauge how many of these classics still exist today.
