Aston Martin Db2   Rvr (1952)

The first of Astons "DB" series of road cars to be sold with the famous initials (Two-Litre models were retrospectively called DB1, only 14 produced). The car was powered by the Twin-cam, W.O. Bentley designed Lagonda engine, developing 116bhp in standard form and 125bhp in "Vantage" guise.

A distinctive design offered in both two seater Coupe and Drophead Coupe form. Only 411 cars produced in total but still available for a lot less than the later DB series cars.
