Sure, we love new cars with modern power and sleek design. But there is something special about the old icons. Today we get a look at a beautiful old school Aston Martin which is set to hit the auction block relatively soon. Today we get a look at a 1958 Aston Martin DB4 Coupe. However, this isn’t your typical DB4.
Let’s take a trip back in time to Paris in 1958. On the eve of the 1958 Paris Auto Show, Marcel Blondeau had a party for the clients of the Garage Mirabeau. As part of the event, Marcel displayed the all-new Aston Martin DB4. A few days after the party, that same white DB4 would make its first public appearance at the Paris Auto Show. The design itself would become one of the most iconic cars in history, and for good reason.
Upon leaving Paris, chassis number 102/L went back to the factory for pre-delivery maintenance, eventually making its way to France. Through the years, the car was draped in deep burgundy before being repainted with its original Desert White. The vehicle is the second DB4 made and fully documented, adding to its charm and appeal in the process.
This isn’t your typical classic car; this one comes with quite a story and one that played a significant role in the history of Aston Martin. Take a closer look at this beautiful classic in the images and head over to RM Sotheby’s to find out more. Place your bid and keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more classic cars, new rides, and more coming soon.
