Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II

 astonmartin dbmarkiiThe Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II is a grand touring car produced by Aston Martin from 1955 to 1957. It was the successor to the DB2/4 Mk I and was updated with a number of improvements.

The most significant change in the DB2/4 Mk II was the adoption of a larger 3.0-liter engine, which produced 140 horsepower. The engine was mated to a four-speed manual transmission and was capable of propelling the car to a top speed of 120 mph. The car also featured improved brakes and suspension, making it a more capable performer than its predecessor.

The DB2/4 Mk II was available in both coupe and convertible body styles, with the latter known as the “Drophead Coupe”. The car’s styling was more refined than that of the DB2/4 Mk I, with a more streamlined body and a slightly longer wheelbase.

One notable feature of the DB2/4 Mk II was its “Hatchback” design. The rear of the car featured a large tailgate, which could be opened to reveal a surprisingly spacious cargo area. This made the car more practical for long-distance touring.

The DB2/4 Mk II was built in limited numbers, with only 199 examples produced. Today, it is a highly sought-after collector’s car, prized for its combination of performance, style, and rarity.
