The Aston Martin DB2/4 Supersonic by Ghia.

Vehicle Overview

The Aston Martin DB2/4 Supersonic made its dazzling debut at the 1956 Turin Motor Show, captivating enthusiasts with its striking design and impeccable craftsmanship. As the final iteration of this iconic design, it holds a special place in automotive history, shrouded in mystery and intrigue. Aston Martin and Carrozzeria Ghia remain tight-lipped about the origins of this masterpiece, offering no specific information about its construction. It appears to have been a bespoke creation, possibly commissioned by a private individual with a penchant for automotive excellence. However, Ghia officially showcased the car in 1956, adding to its mystique and allure. Speculation suggests that renowned race driver Harry Schell may have been the driving force behind the creation of the DB2/4 Supersonic. Schell was first spotted with the vehicle in 1956, using it as his means of transportation to various racetracks where he was employed as a driver for Vanwall. Adapting the Supersonic body to fit the DB2/4’s 2+2-seat layout required meticulous attention to detail. Upon closer inspection, stylistic differences become apparent when compared to other Supersonic models produced for Fiat and Jaguar. These subtle nuances speak to the bespoke nature of the DB2/4 Supersonic, tailored to meet the specific desires of its discerning owner. Despite the secrecy surrounding its creation, the Aston Martin DB2/4 Supersonic remains a symbol of automotive excellence and ingenuity. Its timeless design continues to captivate enthusiasts, evoking a sense of awe and admiration for the artisans who brought it to life. As a rare and unique masterpiece, it stands as a testament to the enduring allure of Aston Martin and the artistry of Ghia, leaving an indelible mark on the history of automotive design.
