Although the Aston Martin DB2 was officially launched at the 1950 New York Motor Show, this was not the first appearance for the car. It had been used previously at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with much notoriety. The classic DB2 was designed by Frank Freeley and was configured as a two-seat touring vehicle in both Fixed-Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe body styles. It was Aston Martin’s first real production vehicle; the name DB2 derived from the initials of the company’s owner, David Brown. Offering Le Mans performance with touring comfort, power was supplied by a DOHC W.O. Bentley-designed Lagonda six-cylinder engine that gave 115hp in standard form and 125hp in Vantage form. The 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Drophead Coupe is an excellent example of early DB2 production, and is a highly sought-after classic in today’s market. With just over 400 DB2 models produced in total, of which approximately 97 were Drophead Coupe body styles, it is a competitive market for those looking to buy a classic DB2 particularly a Drophead Coupe.
