Supplied in chassis form to Vignale and bodied in an elegant fast-back design, this ultra-rare Aston Martin was originally ordered for His Majesty the King of Belgium. Currently undergoing a full ground up restoration at Aston Workshop, this project represents a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to acquire one of the rarest and most collectable Aston Martin cars ever made.
Interest in classic Vignale bodied cars has dramatically increased recently, with Ferrari examples achieving phenomenal prices at auction. This car is understood to be the only classic Aston Martin ever bodied by Vignale, and as such it is of significant historical importance, both to Aston Martin & Vignale.
The car was delivered to Vignale as a DB2/4 chassis only on 28th September 1954. It was then completed in a one-off distinctive fast-back design, with a large opening rear hatch. This stunning Grand Tourer was then delivered on 10th March 1955. It was fitted with the latter, three litre engine and the 1.73:1 ratio.
A totally unique & significant Aston Martin from the 50's with fantastic styling, guaranteed to please the most discerning collector and sure to become one of the most sought after Astons of all time.
