With pleasure, I have wellcomed this beautiful "Boticelli Blue" Aston Martin DB2 convertible back into my stock of classic cars. LML 50/91 was initially sold new by the Aston Martin dealer in Paris, Majestic Auto to Mr. Hugues Dumond who also lived in Paris. Aston Martin connoisseurs know that early DB2 could only be obtained in RHD, the only continental modification being a Speedo in Km instead of Miles. Extremely charming is the fact that this Aston Martin is so nicely documented. Many letters of successive owners corresponding with each other exchanging stories of racing advertures (in Le Mans and Silverstone) illustrated by splendid black/white photographs , unfortunate break downs, exhilarating drives, vengance on the car by a furious (ex) wife, publicity shots, wedding & baptism, etc..., etc... Also the book "The Aston Martin" from Andrew Whyte features on page 60 this car with a nice black/white photograph taken at Silverstone. A voluminous file with many evenings of reading pleasure. The car itself is as you can see from the photographs, a beauty. Extremely sound chassis and body nicely finished in the original "Boticelli Blue" color. The interior is very attractive, showing a little bit of patina, in black leather. Recently we fitted a brandnew tailor made, black double duck hood. Mechanically, this DB2 is a real pleasure to drive with lots of power from the upgraded now 3 liter engine (nr VB6J286). This engine swap is well documented during the cars' previous racing life with letters written by the Aston Martin specialist captain Ivan Forshaw (Aston Service Dorset). All together this DB2 has spent 25 years in France (several previous owners) and 25 years in England with only 1 owner and recently a couple of years in Belgium. During that period my workshop took care of this Aston Martin and made sure she passed every year the rather severe "Controle Technique" test as a normal car. Worth mentioning, are the attractive aluminium Alfin-drums, which were available as an option.
