‘Red Dragon’ Aston Martin auction could go for $2.12 million

by SpeedLux

A 1936 Aston Martin that once belonged to the known racer Dudley Folland, who renovated and placed a Welsh dragon on it, is to be auctioned for about ₤ 1.6 million ($2.12 million).

He purchased the automobile after World War II and adjusted the bodywork to resemble an effective early Ferrari.

Carmarthenshire-born amateur racer Folland made the modification after losing to a Ferrari in a 12-hour race in Paris and a 24-hour event in Spa.

The auction for the Aston “Red Dragon” was due to put on Saturday.

John Polson, Bonhams motoring expert stated that “Folland picked ‘Red Dragon’ because it was the most competitive British constructed automobile available in the early years after the war.”
