Aston Martin DP2155 (DB4 Works Prototype)1959 - 1959
(1959 / 1990)
Initially you may think that this is just ‘another’ DB4 GT! Not so. In 1990, the factory decided that it might be a good idea to purchase and restore a DB4 in order to test out new ideas that could be incorporated into customers cars. UAW 707, an early DB4 in poor condition (chassis number DB4/207/R) was given the designation - DP2155, then the car was extensively modified by Works Service. UAW 707 has become probably, the most developed DB4 in existence.
Modifications performed by Works Service, Newport Pagnell include –
The car was entered into the AML/Brooks Auction in May 2000 and sold for an astonishing £161,000 including buyers premium – a figure in excess of what one might have expected for a DB4GT at that time.
DP2155 was again sold at Bonhams AM Works auction in May 2010, for the sum of £485,500
