It’s no secret that we love GT cars here at the Pursuit. In fact, if it wasn’t for the Conti GT, I’m not sure this site would exist. So h/t to Jalopnik for showing us the way to the auction write up for this 1954 Aston Martin DB2-4.
It’s British, it’s a coupé, and most importantly, these photos of the car are amazing. If you’re at the Coys of Kensington auction house in England, it will be up for auction this weekend.
It’s gets better though, Bentley fans. This Aston Martin DB2 was built right after Aston’s owner, David Brown, had purchased Lagonda. And if you’re up on your Bentley history, you know that W. O. Bentley left Rolls Royce when his contract was up to work at Lagonda where he designed the engine that was used in the DB2. According to its Wikipedia entry, the 2.6l, 6 cylinder powered DB2 had a top speed of 116.4 mph (187.3 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 11.2 seconds.
