MODEL HISTORY & PRODUCTION
The Aston Martin DB2/4 is a grand tourer sold by Aston Martin from 1953 until 1957. It was available as a 2+2 hatchback marketed as a Saloon, as a Drophead Coupe (DHC) and as a 2-seat Fixed Head Coupe.

The DB2/4 was based on the DB2, which it replaced. Changes included a wraparound windscreen, larger bumpers, revised grill and repositioned headlights. The Lagonda engine was initially the same dual overhead cam straight-six design by W. O. Bentley which was used in the Vantage version of the DB2. A 2.9 litre DB2/4 tested by The Motor magazine in 1954 had a top speed of 118 mph and accelerated from 0-60mph in 10.5 seconds.
