Aston Martin 1951 

Great Britain

DB 2 


 

From 1950, optional "Vantage" engine with 120 bhp, increases top speed to 117 mph. Increased again to 125 bhp in 1951, giving 120 mph, optionally available for both models saloon and convertible.
DB2 Convertible was introduced in October 1950. Mechanically similar to the DB2 Saloon, this version is fitted with wind-up windows and a top that stowed away neatly without spoiling the generally smooth lines of the body.
DB2 models from October 1951 are distinguishable by the one-piece radiator and brake duct grille.
