Aston Martin Db 2 4 Mk1 Coup (1953)

An elegant follow on from the DB2, now with a four seater (2+2) Saloon (Coupe) or Drophead Coupe body, featuring a much cleaner nose design than before. Early cars have 2.6 Litre Vantage spec engines, later cars (from 1954) have a more powerful 3 Litre engine that compensates for the extra weight.

The DB2/4 MK1 can be considered a practical car, Saloons have an early form of "hatchback" rear window and the later 3 Litre cars boast 140bhp. Only 73 Dropheads were made so values reflect the rarity but saloons are still easy to find.
