Where Aston Martin began: Flickr photo of the day


When tractor builder David Brown took over Aston Martin after World War II, he focused on building four cars — dubbed DB2 prototypes — that could immediately take on racing at Le Mans. This one, the fourth built, was Brown's personal ride, and later raced around Europe on its massive for the period 18-inch tires. Caught by Ian Leech at Kensington Palace this summer, the DB2 has a stance that no other Aston can match.
