The Aston Martin DB2 was the company’s first all-new model created under the company’s new owner, David Brown. Powered by a W.O. Bentley-designed Lagonda 2.6L twin-cam engine, the DB2 would cause quite a sensation on motorsports circuits, taking the top three places in the 1951 24 Hours of Le Mans. This gentleman’s sports car would grow into a more practical and versatile saloon car with seating for four; it would aptly be renamed the DB2/4 Mk I. The 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Drophead Coupe is an excellent example of early Mk I design and mechanics, and is even more rare than the already limited production Fixed-Head Coupe examples. In fact, of the 565 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I models produced, it is estimated that little more than 100 examples were made in Drophead Coupe form. Considered quite stylish and opulent during its era, the 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Drophead Coupe continues to be a head-turner in today’s classic car market. If you’re thinking about buying one of these special classics, The Beverly Hills Car Club team would be happy to assist you in your search.
