Fastback Coupe
Coachwork: Mulliner
Chassis #: LML/747
Engine # VB6J/185
Sold for $165,000 at 2008 Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction.
From 1953 through 1955 there were just 41 examples of the hand-built DB2/4 Saloons created. The cars were created at the DB works factory in Farsley, while the aluminum bodywork was tasked to the legendary coachbuilder, Mulliner at Newport Pagnell. Near the close of 1954, David Brown purchased the Tickford Coachwork and eventually moved production to that location.

The DB2/4 was fitted with a new three-liter engine that was capable of a zero-to-sixty time of just 10.5 seconds with top speed in the 118 mph range.

This example was given a $200,000 restoration that was completed in 1994. It has won awards at Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, and other shows. It is painted in Blue Haze with medium blue leather piped in grey.

In 2008, the car was brought to the Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by the Worldwide Auctioneers. It was estimated to sell for $160,000 - $180,000. Those estimates were proven accurate as the lot was sold for a high bid of $165,000 including buyer's premium.
