The Aston Martin DB Mark III, launched in March of 1957, would be the third and final derivative of the widely popular DB2 Aston Martin. Produced for just two short years, the DB Mark III is often confused with the DB3 sports-racing car of the early 1950’s. After the DB2, the DB2/4 and the DB2/4 Mark II, many believe the DB Mark III should have been the DB2/4 Mark III but it wasn’t and made little sense in the progression of Aston Martins built before and after. Regardless, the 1958 Aston Martin DB Mark III (and other model-years) would be faster, offer better road handling, and would be better looking than ever. The most notable exterior changes included the addition of a very graceful DB2S-style front grille and modestly revised rear fenders that incorporated Hawk taillights. Inside, a new instrument panel would group all of the gauges directly ahead of the driver rather than in the center as before. Engine improvements, however, were the biggest change for the lineup, as was the addition of disc brakes after the first 100 cars were produced. Standard horsepower was increased to 162hp, yet optional twin exhaust and dual SU carburetors could be added to boost that to 178hp.
