Happy Birthday: Aston DB

DB2 (1949-53)

In 1949, the DB2 was launched. It was stunning - both in terms of looks and performance and build quality. It was the car that established the Aston Martin character for the post-war generation, realising Brown’s vision for the company. Under the bonnet was a W O Bentley dsigned (for Lagonda) twin-cam. The car itself evolved into the DB2/4 MkI/II and eventually just the MkIII with a droop snoot style front end.
