It is a 1950 Aston Martin DB2. The car has been in the same family for 52 years, and comes with an extensive history file, an original purchase invoice and a great deal of correspondence, including letters from David Brown dating back to 1955. Brown bought Aston Martin in 1947 and his initials give the DB models their name. How about $500,000? That was the selling price at the RM Auctions in London on Wednesday.
