Classic and vintage cars make 1,200km journey across China

It is extremely rare to see an Aston Martin DB2 on the road. It's even rarer to see one on the road, in rural China, surrounded by a herd of goats.

Manufactured from 1950 to 1953 in Warwickshire, England, only 411 models were ever produced. Famed for its design and relatively advanced straight-6 racing engine, the DB2 can today fetch as high as $500,000 dollars at auction.

The DB2's visit to the Chinese countryside was part of October's Classic Car Challenge China (also known as 4C), an annual event that sees participants travel from Beijing to Shanghai on a 1,200km 10-day journey
