Aston Martin DB2 Comment

by Mike –

Below is a comment that was sent to me directly by Tom Price about my recent Post on the Aston Martin DB2.

Text and photo by Tom Price,

Aston Martin raced three DB2 Prototypes in 1949 including the first Lagonda powered 6-cylinder (previous Aston Martins were all 4-cylinder). A photo of my 6-cylinder car racing at Monaco several years ago is below.

This car raced at Le Mans in ’49 and ’50 with DNF both years and finished third overall at Spa in ’49.

Tom Price’s Aston Martin DB2 at Monaco

This Aston is really hustling around Monaco! I notice that the grille shape of this DB2 is different than the one I originally wrote about. I think that means that this Tom Price DB2 is an earlier model.

Thank you Tom for sharing this information and photo.

I love it when you all share stuff that I don’t know especially the owners of these special cars.
