Description

With only 565 produced examples, the DB2/4 Mk1 is quite a rare sportscar. These Feltham built Aston Martins are now becoming very collectable, after years in the shade of the iconic DB4-DB6 range.

The engine is a W.O Bentley designed Lagonda twin-cam six cilinder. The early DB2's had a 2.6 litre version, while from 1954 on the larger 2.9 litre block came in use.
