Sport Roadster
Coachwork: Bertone
Chassis #: DB3/6
This car is one of 10 DB3s produced, and is one of eight fitted with the standard right-hand drive 'open' coachwork by Bertone. The cars were the first true 'space frame' sports-racers from the company under David Brown's ownership. This car was raced successfully in a number of hill climbs and UK racing events during the 1953 and 1954 seasons, including the British Empire Trophy Race on the Isle of Man, the Ulster Trophy Formula Libre race, the British Grand Prix Sports Car race held at Silverstone in 1953, and was first in class at the 1953 Rest and Be Thankful Hill Climb. The car has had five owners since new, and was restored to its original specification in 1992. Since then, it has been driven by Sir Stirling Moss in the Japanese LaFest Mille Miglia in 2005, and it competed in the 2001 Mille Miglia Storica.

Aston Martin DB3/6 is one of ten DB3s built by Aston Martin between 1951 and 1953. Entered in the 1953 Tourist Trophy race and other sports car events in the United Kingdom, it was campaigned privately at various race events and hill climbs by British driver Desmond Titterington. It was rebodied in 1954 with an eccentric gullwing design but was rebuilt to correct specifications in 1975. The DB3 was the first postwar Aston built for sports car races. It has the 2.6-liter straight six-engine developed from the W.O. Bentley-designed Lagonda engine.
