It was first produced in 1953 with the aim of creating an unrivalled Grand Tourer that combines both supreme comfort and dynamic handling and performance by replacing the existing 2.6L Inline 6-cylinder engine with a 2.9L Inline 6-cylinder engine. This improved overall power to 140bhp with a top speed of 120mp/h. A total production number of 439 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mk 1 saloons were built.
