Speaking of the word “England”, the first image that came to mind was a black trench coat, a black felt hat, a gray scarf, shiny leather shoes, a briefcase, and a rush through the streets of London. When it comes to sports cars related to the UK, there is no doubt that the UK’s top super sports car will come to mind – Aston Martin.
If you go back to 1913, Lionel Martin and Robert Bonford created the Aston Martin brand. The combination of drivers and engineers opens the legend of a luxury supercar. Since its inception, Aston Martin has been expensive, remarkable, and through more than 100 years of accumulation and precipitation, its characteristics have been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
Aston Martin has many models. The DB series, Vantage series, Vanquish, one-77, Virage, Vulcan and Zagato all have their own characteristics. Vantage is more sporty, DBS focuses on control, DB9 is more luxurious…
The DB series is the oldest product of the Aston Martin family. It is the representative of “eternal and elegant” and the aesthetic legend of the sports car world. Since the launch, the DB series has launched a variety of models, along the pace of time, let us review the classic luxury dreams.
DB1: David Brown bought Aston Martin in 1947; in 1948, he introduced the first DB1 model in the DB series named after David Brown. DB1 is based on the second-war Atom model of the pre-World War, producing only 15 cars.
DB2: In 1950, Aston Martin introduced the second generation DB series DB2. DB2 is more like a car. With the lagonda 2.6l inline six-cylinder engine, the vehicle performance has been greatly improved. The first DB2 was designed for competition and participated in many 24-hour endurance races and achieved excellent results.
DB2 / 4:1953, aston Martin introduced a DB2 / 4 MK1 model with three versions. In 1955, DB2 / 4 MK2 was introduced. The configuration of the new car is the same as that of DB2 / 4 MK1, and the appearance is slightly changed.
DB3: First introduced in 1951; it was developed on the basis of DB2 and is the Aston Martin car developed for this event.
DB Mark III: DB Mark III was first introduced in 1957 and is a serial production successor for the DB2 / 4 MK2. It is available in coupe and convertible versions. In the last DB2 series, the DB Mark III is powered by a six-cylinder engine with a maximum horsepower of 162 N·m and a top speed of 193 km / h.
DB4: In 1954, DB4 went into production. DB4 made its debut at the London Motor Show in 1958. It marks the beginning of the heyday of Aston Martin. Tadek Marek is equipped with a Tadek Marek inline six-cylinder engine with dual camshafts.
DB5: The elegant and luxurious DB5 was launched in 1963. DB5 defines the luxury of that era, and its appearance has made Aston Martin truly gain the attention of the whole world. This is an on-screen aesthetic legend, a classic bond and collector’s project. It is equipped with a 4.0-liter aluminum alloy engine with a maximum power of 282 kW and a top speed of 233 km / h.
DB6: DB6 was launched in 1965. It is still powered by a 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, but its performance has been greatly improved, with a peak horsepower of 325 N·m and a top speed of 245 km / h.
DB7: In 1993, DB7 was reintroduced after nearly 20 years of obsolescence. Since its launch, DB7 has been considered the best car in modern Britain and one of the most beautiful cars in the world. Unfortunately, the model was discontinued at the end of 2003.
DB9: DB9 is a handmade car from England. If the DB series is the aesthetic legend of a sports car, there is no doubt that the DB9 is the most timeless and elegant GT sports car in the legend. Its body is made of high-rigidity lightweight aluminum alloy. It is the smallest aluminum alloy in the DB series. Its strength is twice that of DB7. It was discontinued in 2003. DB9 stands for comfort, luxury and good results after listing.
For Aston Martin, the car is not only a means of transportation, but also an attitude and taste for life. From the beginning, a century has passed, and Aston Martin has his own insistence on shape and performance. The concept of “high quality, high performance, high appearance” has not been overwhelmed by history. It is because of their own persistence that it has withstood setbacks and hardships and step by step to the status of “the top British sports car owner”. Spirit and faith deserve everyone’s admiration.
