(1953)

This unique DB2/4 (LML/761) was purchased chassis only together with a 3 litre DB3 specification engine direct from the factory by a close friend of David Brown, Mr. J. O'Hana of Casablanca. Mr O'Hara then shipped the car to the coachbuilding firm of Serafino Allemano, Carrozzeria Allemano of Turin, Italy. Here it received this unique Berlinetta coachwork designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi who was also responsible for the Ghia Supersonic. At least to my eyes, it is incredible that the coachwork looks as modern as the (remarkably similar) 1958 DB4 but designed five years previously. Some believe that this car was actually built by Bertone but as yet this has not been confirmed.

The car eventually turned in in the US in the late 1970’s and has undertaken a full Pebble Beach restoration wining it’s class in 1994. In 2007, the car was being sold by California specialists, The Blackhawk Collection.

I managed to catch up with the unique Allemano at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance where AM were the featured marque.

To the right of the first photograph we can see another enthusiastic AM photographer taking an interest in the unique Allemano. Hiding behind the hat and sunglasses is non other than the then CEO of AML, Dr Ulrich Bez.

The Allermano was still in 2013, on display at the Blackhawk Collection, Danville, California.
