Although strictly speaking not the first post-war Aston Martin, the Frank Feeley styled DB2 was the model that set the course for the Feltham marque for the next two decades. With a relatively large capacity six-cylinder engine developing ample power, stylish bodywork in either open or closed form and a well appointed cockpit, Aston Martin hit on a successful formula that lasted until the DBS of the late 1960s.
