Making its debut at the 1958 Paris Motor Show, the car was not only the second DB4 ever produced, but also the first one to be shown to the general public and built as a left-hand drive. As only one of 50 ever made, this particular unit — chassis DB4/102/L — was presented by Marcel Blondeau of Garage Mirabeau to his exceptional clientele during a private party held just before the Parisian convention.
Following its display at the Paris Motor Show, the car made its way back to Aston Martin at Newport Pagnell for a series of post-demonstration work. A year later, it would return across the English Channel, being officially delivered to Garage Mirabeau, and subsequently change across various owners, spending most of its life in France.
Now being offered for sale over at RM Sotheby’s, this 1958 Aston Martin DB4 is expected to fetch a staggering €925,000 EUR, or roughly $1.1 million USD.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, Volkswagen has reported $10.7 billion USD in profits across 2020.
