Vehicle Overview

The Aston Martin DB2/4 Vignale, yet another striking creation from the visionary Giovanni Michelotti, emerged as a testament to automotive elegance. Inspired by Princess Liliane de Rethy’s bespoke Ferrari collaboration with Vignale, King Boudouin of Belgium couldn’t resist the allure. In 1955, he seized the opportunity, commissioning his own Aston Martin DB2/4. On September 28th, 1954, the DB2/4 chassis arrived at Vignale’s workshops, serving as the canvas for Michelotti’s artistry. With meticulous care, it was transformed into a singular masterpiece, boasting a distinctive fast-back design crowned by a spacious rear hatch—a hallmark of sophistication. This breathtaking Grand Tourer, bearing the emblem of Aston Martin, was finally unveiled to King Boudouin on March 10th, 1955. Underneath its sleek exterior, it housed a potent three-liter engine paired with a 1.73:1 ratio, ensuring both power and poise on the road. As the King took the wheel of this bespoke creation, he embarked on journeys marked by luxury and refinement, traversing the landscapes of Belgium and beyond with regal grace. The Aston Martin DB2/4 Vignale stands not merely as a car, but as a symbol of royal discernment and the enduring legacy of artisanal craftsmanship. Its lineage, intertwined with the aspirations of royalty and the ingenuity of automotive design, echoes through the annals of history, leaving an indelible mark on the world of motoring. Today, it remains a rare gem, cherished by enthusiasts and collectors alike, its silhouette embodying the fusion of power, prestige, and timeless beauty. In the pantheon of automotive excellence, the Aston Martin DB2/4 Vignale reigns supreme—a testament to the enduring allure of bespoke luxury and the enduring partnership between craftsmanship and royalty. Following their construction of the Aston Martin DB2/4 for King Boudouin of Belgium, Vignale began incorporating the crown into their emblem, signifying their role as coachbuilders to royal families.
