The ‘4’ tacked onto the end of the DB2’S ti­tle de­notes the ad­di­tion of two extra seats. The 2+2 seat­ing was made more hab­it­able by a higher rear roofline, and there was a handy ‘hatch­back’ open­ing rear win­dow. The extra weight slightly took the edge off the per­for­mance, so As­ton boosted ca­pac­ity to 2.9 litres in 1954, tak­ing power to 140bhp. The mkii of 1955 in­cor­po­rated a rear-end restyle, and there was also a rare ‘notch­back’ hard­top ver­sion of the drop­head. Around 750 DB2/4S were pro­duced in to­tal.
