This fabulous Aston is one of only 5 „X“- (for Experimental) designated cars made in developing the DB2/ 4 model. X4 was completed on the 22nd November 1952 and on the 2nd January 1953 it was delivered to the Aston agent Tice & Son Ltd. According to the build-sheet the Aston was originally painted in deep black with contrasting red leather interior. The current color is classic British Racing Green with the lovely patinated brown leather, probably fitted in the early Eighties. In the mid-Eighties the car was bought by non other than Peter Livanos, Aston Martin Ltd owner at the time and a dyed-in-the-wool Aston collector and aficionado. He lent the car to Stirling and Susie Moss to be used by them in the 1987 running of the famous Mille Miglia historic rally. A few years later, during a chance meeting at the Monterey Historics, Livanos, in his typical generous fashion gifted the car to Stirlings son Elliot. Since 1992 the DB2 “X4” has been registered in Elliots name, but in recent years was on static display at the British Motor Industry Heritage. In 2019 the Aston was imported into Switzerland and carefully recommissioned with a new fuel pump, the brakes disassembled, cleaned and adjusted and new ignition wires installed. The radiator was flushed and repainted at the same time. In 2020 the cylinder head and the water pump have been overhauled and the engine was completely new resealed. In addition, the front steering knuckles have been overhauled and new Avon Turbosteel tyres have been fitted. This Aston Martin is in good to very good condition with age appropriate patina. The last Swiss MOT including the important veteran status has been completed in August 2020.
