In case you didn’t know, we have an affinity for classic cars. While we love all things automotive, the classics have a special appeal. Today we get a look at a real legend, a 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III Coupe. Aston Martin introduced the Mark III in 1957. The ride served as an evolution of the DB2/4, featuring a grille shape that would go on to define Aston Martin styling.
The car originally came in a 2+2, three-door hatchback arrangement, offering a sleek design with stunning lines from front to back. The ride was powered by a 2.9-liter inline-six derived from a Bentley design, taken to a new level by Tadek Marek. The car was packed with 178 horsepower, offering exceptional power for its time. It even offered an optional dual-exhaust system, boasting a 0-60 mph time of just 9.3 seconds.
The handling and comfort were elevated as well, blending performance and luxury seamlessly. This particular Mark III coupe is in immaculate condition inside and out. The ride is a showcase of an important model in the companies history. The ride even features design elements that can still be seen on the Aston Martins of today.
