The 1930 Aston Martin International 1.5-liter short-chassis tourer is one of only 81 built. It was restored in 1995 and afterward its owner, David Venables, put it to high-speed tests, taking part twice in the Brighton Speed Trials. In February 2011, it was featured on the cover of The Automobile magazine.
