RM Auctions’ Paris sale during the world-famous Retromobile show week next month is one of the few places where you can acquire a Ralph Laurenworthy car collection in the space of an afternoon.

Providing your bank balance is up to the task, of course.

For our latest highlight from the scintillating sale, we have a 1950 Aston Martin DB2, not the most expensive motorcar on offer by any means, but one that appeals to us immensely.

One of only 50 triple-grille “washboard” examples built, it was part of the famed Briggs Cunningham’s three-car entry at Sebring in 1950, and has been totally restored.

The last time it crossed the auction block it sold for around $310,000, but we expect it will bring home quite a bit more this time ’round.

Time to brush up on your French…
