1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 Coupe

This DB2/4 was the personal car of the well-known French Aston Martin marque specialist and expert M. Pierre Lamy, who built this car for his own use and to his own specification, incorporating a number of practical and performance enhancements. Those who knew Pierre say that he had an extraordinary personality that left no one indifferent, a real character apparently. He was meticulous, hardworking and nothing was ever left to chance with his cars. We understand that he was also celebrated for his preparations for the Tour Auto, which he assisted for many years, with organiser Patrick Peter.

His DB 2/4 was his own vision of “the ultimate” Aston Martin. Pierre wanted a car that would be as comfortable on the Champs-Élysées as it would be lapping hard at Montlhéry. Mr Lamy spent 10 years working on this car himself and incorporated his own ideas and upgrades into the build. He preserved the luxury interior with its leather and wood trim and added numerous gauges and a beautifully finished Roll cage, and on the mechanical side of things, Pierre paid meticulous attention to competition detail, with triple Weber 45DCOE52 carburettors replacing the original twin SUs. Aviation specification armoured hoses were installed for all under-bonnet fluids. The suspension was completely overhauled, using new components throughout, for international competition use and where he considered necessary, they were reinforced. The braking system was also completely upgraded to front discs with competition front callipers and custom made fittings.  The rear window was replaced with an exact Perspex item to the full original dimensions, giving greatly improved rear visability. This exceptional Aston Martin was the culmination of Mr Lamy’s years of expert experience with the marque and we believe would be perfect for events such as the Tour Auto. Now offered for the first time in many years at a very fair price for such a rare and much modified DB2\4 at £165,000
