This unusual Aston Martin DB2/4 is one of several such chassis ordered by the American industrialist Stanley Harold 'Wacky' Arnolt to be bodied by Carrozzeria Bertone in Italy and sold as Arnolt Aston Martins. Franco Scaglione designed the flowing lines, and the result is distinctly Italian, particularly as seen in the smoother lines, although still very much Aston Martin. This car is the first of three special Bertone Spyders to be finished and was kept by Arnolt for many years.
