1951 Aston One off the 2 Team Cars Ex Mille miglia/Lemans For Sale

DB2 1951 Team Cars
Building on the experience of the previous season with the DB2 and a little more development time, the new Works cars were designed to be an incredible 200kg lighter than the 1950 examples. This was achieved by stripping out any unnecessary trim from the interior, the use on 18 gauge alloy for the bodies (instead of 16), Plexiglas side and rear windows and drilling the chassis.

XMC76 (LML/ 50/ 50) and XMC77 (LML/ 50/ 55) were entered in predominantly the same events as the previous year. At Silverstone, #76 came 6th overall and 1st in class, #77 retired. At Le Mans, #76 was 7th overall and 3rd in class, bettered by #77 which was 5th overall and 2nd in class. The 1951 team cars continued to be raced by the factory during 1952 and 1953.

Despite their age (all are over 60 years old) and immense value, all five DB2 team cars are still being actively raced even today at AMOC and other classic events worldwide.

THE ASTON MARTIN DB2/4 The need to widen the appeal of the already-successful DB2 resulted in the launch of the 2+2 DB2/4 in October 1953. Modifications to the rear of the chassis plus a reduction in fuel tank capacity from 19 to 17 gallons liberated sufficient space within the existing design for two child-sized occasional ...
