ASTON MARTIN DB2
2-seater coupÈ, drophead coupÈ.
Twin-cam Lagonda engine, designed under the aegis of W.O. Bentley, married to Aston's tubular chassis from the DB1. The 116bhp Vantage engine (later 125bhp) is a desirable option, giving 115-120mph, although watch it, because some very early cars were made with column shift. Noisy, and spares expensive - when you can get them.
2580cc (S6 DOC)
Front engine, rear-wheel drive
1950 to 1953
