There was only one "Supersonic" Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk IIever made, and it wasn't even made by Aston Martin. It was built as a one-off by Carozzeria Ghia for the 1956 Auto Show in Turin Italy as a tribute to James Bond's carmaker of choice. Legend has it that a filthy rich member of the Vanderbilt family thought it was so beautiful that they bought it on the spot at the show. This is the first time it's ever been for sale in modern history, so don't be surprised when it fetches well over $2 million in November at RM's "Art of The Automobile" auction.
The styling achieved by Ghia here would be used as the DNA for many later Astons, including James Bond's infamous DB5.
"Supersonic" refers to flying faster than the speed of sound, a look that this car achieves while standing perfectly still.
Say it out loud and try not to get turned on at your desk.
Whatever blue that is, you need more of it in your life.
After a full museum grade restoration, it's safe to say this bad boy is running better than new.
Don't be alarmed by Dave's name on there. Between the 40s and the 70s, all Astons had the owner of the company David Brown's moniker on them.
