Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark II

Year of production 1955 - 1957

Category: David Brown era

(1955 - 1957)

Whilst outwardly similar to the previous DB2/4 model, with the Mark II came many detail changes. The car was first shown at the London Motor Show in 1955 and during production run for only 2 short years with a total of 199 cars were built, a majority were built with saloon coachwork as shown here. Other body styles were the desirable fixed head coupe and the wind-in-the-hair drophead coupes. Initially, the engine was the same as fitted to the later examples of the DB2/4 model (VB6J), but as an optional extra, the Special Series engine (VB6J/...../L or L1) could be fitted. The Special Series engine had 165 bhp on tap which was down to higher compression, the fitting of larger valves and high lift camshafts.
