Auction organizers are counting on great interest to the car, which contributes to the rich history of the car. DB2 model was discovered only recently in the south of the Netherlands. The car was stolen in 2002, and then melted and transported to the Netherlands. The legal owner, a resident of the United Kingdom, has died, without waiting for news about his cars. The car owner was living in the city of Bulldoze (county Hertfordshire). Since the owner is no longer alive, law enforcers gave the car to his family, and they decided that it would be more correct to sell a rarity at auction for a starting price of $ 1.3 million.
