Imagine you want to have something very special in your garage, but also to enjoy it during events on the circuit or during tours and rallies. The preference for an English classic has been around for a long time, because, to be honest, which country is even more possessed by cars (sports) than the English. And if the car is basically not suitable for racing, then they make it that way.
Continuing dreaming: are you going to restore and prepare a car yourself or are you buying one that is already finished and only needs to be perfected with a few personal things? And where to begin? Brand, budget, perfection, style, historical value? Many aspects to decide over. Despite all the options and advice presented: you are the one who wants to enjoy and therefore also the one who decides.
If you love one of the most appealing English brands with a fascinating (competition) history, then Aston Martin must be very highly rated. In that case we would like to tell you what kind of 1952 DB 2 we can offer. Going through the documentation is an evening-filling program in itself. Many documents and books full of photos and technical drawings tell the story of a special car driven and maintained by enthusiasts and connoisseurs of the illustrious brand. The perfection of the Aston and the documentation clearly show that they were really super technical petrol heads with two right hands.
The Aston has been completely restored in the past and has been adapted to all major racing needs. Naturally, all work is described in detail and photographed. A series of years followed in which the car was intensively raced and achieved successes. Everything is well described.
Because of his older age and the accompanying decision to end driving on a circuit, the English owner decided to a Dutch collector who registered the car in 2018. The owner not only collects, but actively participates in all kinds of tours, races and rallies with cars from his beautiful collection. The Aston has been used with pleasure and success a number of times by him and he has subsequently decided to put the car in perfect condition and also to make it suitable for driving on public roads. In this way you can also participate in tours and rallies. The bodywork was completely resprayed in the color Almond Green, the same as at the time of the first delivery. Speaking of matching: that is also the engine according to the supplied Heritage Certificate. In addition to the assembly of the re-upholstered original front seats, various technical matters were also carried out, including the wheel suspension that was adjusted to its original height. As an extra bonus, the engine used for races is also included, along with a number of spare parts.
But because plans and interests change, the owner decided to sell the Aston Martin. This brings a very special Aston Martin DB2 on the market that can hardly be compared with others.
We can write a long story about what has been done about the car, how well it drives and emphasize the quality: but that doesn’t make much sense. You should see, feel and above all hear a car like this in real life. The exhaust symphony that is being blown out into the world on the right side is more like a gala performance by the London Symphony Orchestra. Not to express in words so beautiful!
In conclusion, we can say that this Aston Martin DB2 is the car for the passionate enthusiast is impressed by the history and will take up the challenge to combine style and technology and keep it on the road.
