Aston Martin would first release the DB2 as a motorsports car, with competitive showings and notable successes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Mille Miglia races. In fact, three DB2 models participated in the 1949 Le Mans race and finished first and second in class, and fifth and sixth overall. This success would pave the way for impressive export sales and popularity throughout both the European and American automotive markets. They would write the opening chapter in Aston Martin’s illustrious post-war racing and production history. Fast-forward to the 1950 New York Motor Show, and Aston Martin is debuting a production version of the DB2. Powered by a 2.6L DOHC inline six-cylinder engine that was conceived by Willie Watson and W.O. Bentley at Lagonda, buyers were offered 115hp in standard tune and more than 125hp in Vantage tune – a performance-driven special option. Both the 1951 Aston Martin DB2 Drophead Coupe and Fixed-Head Coupe options would use a four-speed gearbox and a very early space-frame chassis that offered a modern independent front coil-sprung suspension. In total, it is estimated that just over 400 examples were produced between 1950 and 1953, of which approximately 97 were Drophead Coupe models.
