Driving this British beauty is a dream for many.

They say you shouldn’t meet your heroes, but that doesn’t really apply to cars. Every once in a while you get the opportunity to not only see a dream vehicle, but to put it in your garage, like this 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 MKII. This classic would’ve been cool even if James Bond had never driven one, but that fact made it even more desirable. We have Beverly Hills Car Club to thank for making this British classic available to the public, making dreams come true.

Wearing British racing green like any proper English car, and lacking any ostentatious use of chrome, this Aston Martin looks quite stately from any angle. That classic grille and those smooth body lines naturally make this a vehicle fit for a king, with all the panache and class you can fit on four wheels. Of course, this was just one of 34 MKII fixed head coupes made, so it’s not exactly your run-of-the-mill Aston Martin. Everything shines up nicely, plus the wire-spoke wheels finish up the authentic appearance.

This is a proper American-friendly car, thanks to the right-hand-drive configuration, so no need to panic about that. While you can clearly see the interior needs some new upholstery and other touchups, the potential in this vehicle is tremendous. Imagine how impressive the interior will look once fully restored, bringing out the full glory of this automotive legend.

What you really need to know is this numbers-matching car comes with a nice 2.9-liter inline-six with dual SU carbs. A four-speed manual transmission means more driving fun and enjoyment, which is what this Aston Martin was ultimately created to do.

Any Aston Martin from the 1950s will be highly sought after now and for the foreseeable future, but this one is especially rare.
