 This stunning left hand drive DB2/4 was subject to a meticulous complete restoration in 2009. Every aspect of the car was removed and has been re finished to the highest of standards.
 The well-documented restoration file show the complete body shell being removed and every aspect of the chassis being brought back to the condition it left the factory in.
 The exterior has been finished in the original colour scheme of Deep Carriage Green and Beige interior.
 If you do not fall in love with the looks of this DB2/4 then simply turn the key and the roar of the beautifully W.O. Bentley designed straight 6 will win you over immediately.
 More recently the well-known and accredited Century Classics have maintained this DB2/4. With as view of entering the Mille Miglia they were given the task of checking and fixing every mechanical aspect of the car, this included:
Cylinder head overhaul with fitment of the larger MK3 valves.
Complete steering overhaul, including an uprated steering box.
Complete brake overhaul with re-lined shoes.
New wheel cylinder and re-built master cylinder.
All new wheel bearings.
Gearbox rebuild including new bearings, oil seals and clutch.
Stronger DB4 style wheels fitted with new tyres.
Renew Fuel pipes.
Complete engine check including sump removal and big end bearings checked.
 All of the work carried out by Century Classics has made this a potentially Mille Miglia eligible and has an FIVA ID card, which is absolutely necessary for 1000 Miglia S.r.l. entry.
Due the extensive maintenance work this DB2/4 must be one of the finest driving Aston’s on the road, starting first time, every time, the driving experience truly is sublime.
 The Aston Martin DB2/4 was launched from Feltham in October 1953 and was offered as a sporting 2+2 hatchback or an open Drophead Coupé.
 Although similar to the DB2 it replaced, changes included a smaller fuel tank, rear suspension upgrade, wraparound windscreen, larger bumpers, and repositioned headlights.
 A number of special bodied cars were also produced by Italian coachbuilders Carrozzeria Allemano, Bertone, and Vignale who were commissioned at special request by private clients.
 David Brown had purchased the Lagonda company a few years earlier, primarily to obtain the W.O.Bentley designed, double overhead camshaft straight six, which he wanted as a replacement for the aging Claude Hill four cylinder unit.
 He knew success in motorsport would benefit sales, and used the 2.6-litre, six-cylinder unit to power the works DB2s which were campaigned at Le Mans and across Europe throughout the early 1950s.
 The DB2/4 engine (VB6J) was initially tuned to 125bhp, propelling the car to 120mph and 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds.  However, in the summer of 1954, the capacity was increased from 2,580cc to 2,992cc, which raised power to 140bhp at 5,000rpm and reduced the 0-60mph time to 10 seconds dead.

om Aston Martin DB2
Aston Martin DB2 är en betydande modell i Aston Martins historia och spelade en avgörande roll för att etablera varumärket som en ledande tillverkare av lyxiga sportbilar. Här är en översikt över dess historia, specifikationer, produktionsnummer och tävlingshistorik:

1. Historia: Aston Martin DB2 introducerades 1950 som efterföljaren till Aston Martin 2-liters sport. Det var den första Aston Martin som drevs av företagets egendesignade motor. DB2 hade en elegant och aerodynamisk kropp designad av Frank Feeley.

2. Specifikationer:
- Motor: DB2 hade till en början en 2,6-liters inline-sex-motor, känd som "W.O. Bentley"-motorn. Senare versioner, inklusive DB2/4 och DB2/4 MkII, var utrustade med en större 2,9-litersmotor.
- Effekt: Effekten varierade mellan olika versioner, men den varierade i allmänhet från cirka 105 till 140 hästkrafter.
- Växellåda: DB2 erbjöds med en 4-växlad manuell växellåda, och några senare modeller hade en 3-växlad automatisk växellåda som tillval.

3. Produktionsnummer: Aston Martin producerade DB2 i olika iterationer från 1950 till 1953. De exakta produktionsnumren för varje variant är följande:
- Aston Martin DB2: Cirka 411 tillverkade enheter.
- Aston Martin DB2/4: Cirka 565 tillverkade enheter.
- Aston Martin DB2/4 MkII: Cirka 199 enheter tillverkade.

4. Tävlingshistoria: Aston Martin DB2 nådde anmärkningsvärda framgångar inom motorsport, vilket bidrog till Aston Martins rykte för att producera konkurrenskraftiga sportbilar. Några viktiga tävlingshöjdpunkter inkluderar:
- 1950 24 Hours of Le Mans: Aston Martin DB2 slutade 1:a och 2:a i 3,0-litersklassen, vilket markerade Aston Martins första totala seger på Le Mans.
- 1951 Spa 24 Hours: DB2 vann loppet i 3,0-litersklassen.
- Monte Carlo Rally 1952: Aston Martin DB2 uppnådde en klassseger.
- 1953 Mille Miglia: Aston Martin DB2 slutade 1:a och 2:a i 3,0-litersklassen.

Framgången för DB2 och dess racingprestationer lade grunden för efterföljande Aston Martin-modeller och befäste varumärkets rykte för att producera högpresterande sportbilar.

Sammantaget är Aston Martin DB2 en viktig modell i Aston Martins historia, som representerar övergången till egen motorproduktion och etablerar varumärkets närvaro på marknaden för lyxiga sportbilar. Dess kombination av elegant design, prestanda och motorsportframgång bidrar till dess önskvärdhet bland samlare och fordonsentusiaster idag.
