The Aston Martin DB3S was manufactured from 1953-1956. It featured a feline body and a classic cutaway section behind the front wheels – famous in the Ferrari 250TR models. It was distinguished by raised eyebrows and a redefined ’humped oval' grille which is a trademark that is still used in the Aston Martin production cars.
Beyond great looks, it has a strong racing pedigree. In 1955 the DB3S took victory at Silverstone and placed second at Le Mans with drivers Peter Collins and Paul Frere behind the wheel. That same year, the DB3S also took the victories at British GP and Goodwood Nine Hours. At the 1956 Le Mans, the DB3S came second for the second time with Stirling Moss and Peter Collins at the wheel.
