Based on the DB2, Aston Martin also provided the nippy GT car with a somewhat roomier body from 1953 and transformed the two-seater into a four-seater. In addition to a modified panoramic windscreen, larger bumpers and offset headlights, the car was one of the first to feature a new type of tailgate with an integrated rear window. Until 1955 the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark I was built, afterwards it was replaced by the Mark II model, which was still produced until 1957 and finally the Mark III came on the market as the last stage of development, which represented the conclusion of the DB2/4 and was built until 1959.
