1957 Aston Martin DBR1/2 Yours for £20 Million

Classic Cars

If demand sees the car sold for £22M, it will become the most expensive car ever sold.

In the 1957 Aston Martin DB1/2, British car dealer Talacrest may have the most expensive car in the world on its hands. The Berkshire-based classic Ferrari specialist is asking for £20 million, and if demand sees the price rise by £2m, a distinct possibility given the car's pedigree, then it will become the most expensive car ever sold. Motorsport legends Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori raced this Aston to the checkered flag at Le Mans 24 Hours in 1959.

To date, it remains the British marque's sole winner at the legendary endurance race. Aston Martin's most successful racing car ever built, the DBR1 also won at Spa, the Nurburgring 1000km, Sebring and with Sir Stirling Moss behind the wheel ran out as the winner in the 1959 Tourist Trophy at Goodwood to help the British carmaker take the 1959 World Sports Car Championship. While being beautifully maintained and road registered, the instantly recognizable racing car has been regularly raced in various historic race events over the years with great success.
