The prototype DB2 appeared as one of three Aston Martins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1949. The production model of the DB2 was first shown at the New York Auto Show in April 1950. Although demand was high, examples 2 to 4 were reserved for use in the 1950 24 Hours of Le Mans. The cars took the first two places and were entered again in 1951. The success brought fame to David Brown’s ascendant company and convinced its management to build a series of cars specifically designed for racing, starting with the DB3. Only 238 Vantage specification cars of the Aston Martin DB 2 were produced between 1950 and 1953.
