This particular Aston Martin DB2/4 MkIII drophead was recently auctioned off for £206,000 at Barons British Heritage sale at Sandown Park.

It has actually a fascinating story. It was first owned by David Brown when it was new, but it has has spent the last 30 years hidden beneath a tarpaulin!

Fortunately though it was recovered form its dreadful condition and they decided to sell it in the exact same condition. The highest bidder for this legendary Aston was a private British collector who £206,866 (including premium). That’s more than twice the initial value of the car at the Auction.


The car is now going through a restoration program, and after that it will cost a whole lot more than the auction price!

“It was an amazing lot that attracted a huge amount of attention and exceeded all expectations,” said Barons’ Managing Director, Laurence Sayers Gillan.

“The final result goes to demonstrate how important it is to give these rare or special motor cars the correct level of promotion – when a car is consigned to us, we make sure that the world is told it’s coming up for auction!”
