The DB 2/4 is presented on the London show in 1953. It is the 2-seater of the DB 2. It is extended a bit, and by lifting the curvature of the roof somewhat there is space for two additional jump seats. The DB 2/4 is thus probably the first coupe of the world with a rear seatback that can be put down, and a tailgate. The tailgate, however, corresponds with the rear window. Now, at least it is possible to access the boot fairly directly. Besides the 'Hatchback' there are the notchback and a convertible.The engine is taken over at first from the DB 2, an engine that is also mounted into the Lagonda sedan. Soon, the stronger 3 liter version of the Vantage is used. With the Mark II the angular rear fenders disappear. An extraordinary space is created for the on-board tools: in front between the seats.It is not necessary to advertise Aston Martin. The vehicles are quite successful, e.g., with the victory of the 24 hours of Le Mans and the brand name becomes legendary.               Top of page               Index
