Aston Martin Ultimate Portfolio 1948 -1968



SKU: 6369 Category: Tags: , , , ,


This second portfolio in the Aston Martin series of books deals with the period after World War II. Although the company managed to survive the war, owner Gordon Sutherland didn’t have enough funds to put into production the promising ‘Atom’ prototype. David Brown was the next enthusiast to take the name forward, along with Lagonda, which he had also purchased. These exciting times for Aston Martin started the 2-Litre, which evolved into the stylish DB2 and the famous Italian-designed DB4. Next came the super-car era and the DB5, made famous by James Bond. This was followed by the DB6, which is now more of a grand tourer than a sports car. This collection of articles from leading automotive magazines covers DB1, DB2, DB3S, DB Mk. III, DB4, GT, Zagato, DB5, DB6, and Mk. II models.
