The market for legendary vehicles is never short on enamoring content, and thanks to RM Sotheby’s prolific auction site, buyers have been gifted with a quintessential venue to procure some of history’s most influential cars. Now, the site has listed a stunning 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III for auction.
The iconic platform that you see here is one of the last of its kind and marks the final year of the DB2/4’s evolutionary run, which came to a close in 1957. It was one of the first to adopt the company’s revered grille shape and a three-door, 2+2 design that would eventually rise to prominence some years later, putting the manufacturer ahead of the curve when it came to futuristic design sensibilities. Aesthetically, the car remains unmatched and boasts a sleek, functional exterior, Aston’s iconic badging, and classic color palette. It’s interior is equally as enticing, thanks to a great-looking wood-grain wheel, an immaculate dash layout, and reupholstered seating. Below the hood, you’ll find the company’s lauded 2.9-liter inline-six engine, which was built to mimic the powerplant used in Bentley’s offering, and updated by Tadek Marek.
