1952 Aston Martin DB2 Drophead Coupe

The classic Aston Martin DB2 Drophead Coupe and Fixed-Head Coupe models would be manufactured between 1950 and 1953, each being hand-built. It would be the first successful post-war production car for the British manufacturer. First seen in 1949 when several prototypes were entered in the 14 Hours of Le Mans race, the official public debut of the Aston Martin DB2 would come at the 1950 New York Motor Show – albeit more civilized with proper bumpers and modern day conveniences. Under the hood, a 2.6L six-cylinder engine would give drivers 115hp in standard tune, while a Vantage version offering 125hp would be offered at an additional cost. One of the characteristics that define the 1952 Aston Martin DB2 Drophead Coupe and Fixed-Head Coupe models is the hinged front section – hood, nose and fenders – which tilted forward to access the engine. Although the Drophead Coupe convertible would be widely viewed as a particularly stylish and appealing model, it is estimated that 97 examples were produced between 1950 and 1953. If you are the owner of one of these Drophead Coupe examples and are thinking about selling, the Alex Manos team would love to speak with you.
