In 1953, the addition of two small rear seats would make the classic Aston Martin DB2 into a 2+2; and thus it became the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I. In addition to the two-door Fixed-Head Coupe, the DB2/4 was offered as a sophisticated convertible, the Drophead Coupe. Available from 1953 to 1955, they were first supplied with the 2.6L engine in Vantage tune as first seen in the DB2. This powerful engine offered a peak power of 125hp. From April 1954 until the end of production in October 1955, a 2.9L engine with 140hp and a top speed of 120mph was available as standard.
