Description

The DB2/4 was based on the DB2, which it replaced. Changes included a wraparound windscreen, larger bumpers, and re positioned headlights. Aston Martin DB2/4 was first launched in October 1953 and launched at the London Motor Show in 1953. Built went on till 1955 and a total of 564 cars were built, of which 73 drop head coups and 12 chassis only were sold for special body cars. The Lagonda engine was initially the same dual overhead cam straight-6 designed by W. O. Bentley and used in the Vantage version of the DB2. Displacement for this engine, designated the VB6E, was 2.6 L (2,580 cc/157 in³), giving 125 hp (93 kW). In September 1953 for the Saloon and in April 1954 for the Drophead, a 2.9 L (2,922 cc/178 in³) VB6J version was used, raising power to 140 hp (104 kW) and maximum speed to 120 mph (193 km/h). Of the 565 Mark I models produced, 102 were Drophead Coupé models. A 2.9-liter DB2/4 tested by British magazine The Motor in 1954 had a top speed of 118.5 mph (190.7 km/h) and accelerated from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 10.5 seconds. A fuel consumption of 23.0 miles per imperial gallon (12.3 L/100 km; 19.2 mpg US) was recorded. The test car cost £2621 including taxes. Although three works cars were prepared for the 1955 Monte Carlo Rally and two for the Mille Miglia, the company pursued its competitive ambitions more intently with the DB3, which was designed specifically for sports-car racing. A DB2/4 Mk I Drophead Coupé appeared in the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film “The Birds”. This vehicle has been restored.
