Current CarRichB's Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III Saloon (1958)
Last updated: Monday 22nd October 2012
1958 Aston Martin DB 2-4 Mark III (known simply as the DB Mark III) was the last of the Feltham Astons before construction moved to Newport Pagnell. The DB Mark III with it's 3ltr twin OHC straight six by WO Bentley and body designed by ex-Lagonda designer Frank Feeley is notable as being the first Aston Martin to use the iconic radiator grill shape based on the DB3S sports racing car and which is characteristic of every Aston Martin since. It is also the Aston Martin first used by James Bond in Ian Fleming’s Novel Goldfinger where he selected the Aston DB III in preference to a Jaguar Mark 2 from Q’s pool of cars for his mission to pursue Goldfinger through France to Switzerland!
