Sadly, only 14 examples were built, 13 with the open 2 seater coachwork, and a single example sold chassis only. They are very rarely seen indeed. This was the first that I have ever seen in the showroom of Aston Workshop in Beamish during March 2006.
But one distinctive feature of the 2 Litre Sports can still be seen Aston Martins to the present day. It’s possible to see a familiar shape in the three piece grille. Unfortunately the centre section was not fitted when I took these pictures
After the DB2 was first announced in 1950, the 2 litre Sports become known retrospectively as the DB1. This particular car shown here was the last one made.
