Up for Auction: Stunning 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Cabriolet

Classic Cars

The 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Cabriolet is truly a handsome and unique vehicle. Any car enthusiast would seriously consider shelling out some serious coin for this rare piece of automotive history. As one of the most exclusive cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the '54 Cabriolet is set for auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 1st. One of 565 models built between 1953-1955, only twelve were built in rolling chassis form for freelance coachbuilders.

8 of those 12 were sent to Carrozzoria Bertone for bodywork, and the Cabriolet up for sale is the 5th of those 8. The 1954 DB2/4 Cabriolet has a 2.6-liter VB6E engine that produces 125hp. It can hit a top speed of 120mph. The car contains most of its original specs, and can sit between 2 to 4 people on collapsible chairs in the back. Actually, the only non-original feature on this sports car is a telescopic steering column and left-hand drive. After 4 owners and over $288,000 dollars invested in its restoration, the sports car is expected to fetch anywhere between $721,000 - $1,000,000.
