Expected to fetch $278,000 - $334,000 at auction.
As one of just 410 DB2s ever to be built and fitted with the even-rarer 2.5-liter, 120 horsepower Vantage-spec engine, this 1953 example has never been restored, and is considered to be “perhaps the finest unrestored, original example in existence.” Its current long-term owner has had it for over 40 years. In its day, the DB2 Vantage was renowned for build-quality and driving pleasure, and was capable of sub-11-second 0-60 mph times and a top speed of 117mph.
The car was delivered in 1953 to a Pennsylvania lawyer, finished in Moonbeam Gray with a red leather interior. It has since resided in California and New York, before returning to Europe and its current owner. The Aston will be auctioned on Saturday, May 10 by RM Auctions, and is expected to fetch between 200,000 - 240,000 Euros.
