The DB1, known formally as the 2/2.6-Litre Sports, stands as a living tribute to David Brown, the iconic British entrepreneur. Its rarity makes it a highly coveted asset among Aston Martin enthusiasts. The vehicle has been in the possession of its current owner for nearly three decades and previously had an exciting life in the hands of Shaun Magee, an Aston Martin engineer and former race car driver.
The car promises to be more than just a trophy for its new owner; it's a restoration dream waiting to happen. Once returned to its former glory, it could be the showstopper in some of the globe’s most distinguished automotive events.
Damian Jones, a top-tier motorcar expert at H&H Classics, expressed excitement about the auction. "This DB1 is a truly remarkable artifact, with an intriguing past," he said. "As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, it seems serendipitous to feature a car that has been under singular ownership almost as long as we've been in business."
Jones continued, "Whoever becomes the new custodian of this rare gem will not only acquire an invaluable piece of motoring lore but also have the extraordinary opportunity to chart its future adventures."
H&H Classics anticipates a lively event full of eager vendors, potential buyers, and classic car connoisseurs.
