Aston Martin’s engineers accomplished a feat of engineering prowess, altering the chassis and reshaping the very essence of this classic to create a masterpiece that transcends time. The transformation of the DB2/4’s rear chassis and the reduction of the fuel tank capacity might seem like small changes, but they yielded monumental results. Aston’s engineers liberated just enough space to introduce two child-sized occasional rear seats, breathing new life into the classic sports saloon. The innovation didn’t stop there. By folding down the rear seat backs, a cavernous load-carrying platform emerged, doubling the luggage capacity. The revolutionary opening rear door concept transformed the DB2/4 into a trailblazing precursor to the modern ‘hatchback.’

Beneath the skin, the DB2/4 retained the hallmark elements that defined Aston Martin’s commitment to excellence. The rectangular-tube chassis, independent front suspension, and the well-placed live rear axle spoke to the brand’s dedication to engineering precision. The power unit, a 2.6-litre, six-cylinder, twin-cam masterpiece designed at Lagonda by Willy Watson under the guidance of W O Bentley, captured the essence of power and finesse.
