Selling A 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe
After acquiring both the Aston Martin and Lagonda companies, industrialist David Brown would set his sights on the racetrack. Marrying the engineering principles of both companies, the Aston Martin DB2 would be born. Unveiled as a racecar for the 1949 24 Hours of Le Mans, the classic DB2 models would finish first and second in class, as well as fifth and sixth overall. These early racing successes would open the door for Aston Martin’s illustrious racing history. The company would then set their sights on a production version, which was launched at the 1950 New York Motor Show. The 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe would be powered by a 2.6L DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, which had been acquired during the purchase of the Lagonda company. It was capable of more than 120hp and could reach a top speed of 116.4mph according to an article by The Motor in 1950. It also revealed a 0-60 time of just 11.2 seconds, which was quite impressive for a car of its size and class. If you’re the owner of a 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe, you certainly have a rare and respected classic on your hands; little more than 400 were manufactured in total throughout the three years of production.
