(1953 - 1955)

Introduced to the public at the London Motor Show in 1953, the DB2/4 offered a true first in the motoring world - since then much imitated. It's Aston Martin that we have to thank for bringing the world the 'sporting hatchback' although, unfortunately they failed to patent this innovation. This innovation came about as the DB2/4 was a four seater (really a 2+2) unlike the pure two seat DB2, and rear access was required for the occupants luggage. With the rear seats folded down, the DB2/4 had a colossal luggage capacity. The rear screen was significantly larger than on the DB2 which aids easy identification.
