The Aston Martin DB2 is one of the rarest racing cars produced by the British company as only two DBR2s were ever built. It was, and still is, a beautiful car design which captures the spirit of car racing from a bygone era. The DBR2 came into existence in 1957 and after moderate success in England, both cars went on to race extensively in the United States. DBR2/2 was driven by Stirling Moss to victory in the Bahamas in 1958 and was later owned by the Chairman of Aston Martin in the 1980s. These days both cars would command a price tag of around Â£8m each.
