After receiving much praise and notoriety for its DB2 model, Aston Martin would release a follow-up in 1953 with the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I. Available as before in both a Fixed-Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe version, the new Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I, as its name suggests, would see the addition of two occasional seats in the rear. While both body styles would look very similar to their predecessor, the 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Fixed-Head Coupe would receive a one-piece windshield in place of the previously divided glass, and the rear roofline would now bulge out slightly to provide additional headroom for rear seat passengers. It should be noted, however, that the wheelbase was not changed; a lot of rearranging was done to squeeze these new seats into the design. A smaller fuel tank repositioned above the spare tire was one such change, yet legroom for the rear passenger left a lot to be desired. The Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I was also the first ever sports car to have a top-hinged hatchback, which allowed for access to a luggage area. In total, it is estimated that 565 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I examples were manufactured, of which all but approximately 100 were Fixed-Head Coupes.
