About the Aston Martin DB MkIII:
The Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark III, or Aston Martin DB Mk III was made by Aston Martin from 1957 until 1959. It used evolution of the W.O Bentley designed Lagonda 2.9 litre straight six engine, redesigned by Tadek Marek. It was the first Aston Martin to feature the elegantly shaped grille which would become a signature of the brand in years to come.
With it’s 2.9 litre engine, the Aston Martin DB Mk III produced around 160hp, good for 0-60mph in 9.3 seconds and a top speed of 120mph – impressive numbers for 1957, and certainly impressive enough for Ian Fleming – James Bond drove a DB Mark III in the 1959 Goldfinger novel (which was replaced by a 1965 DB5 for the movie of the same year).
The MkIII was only produced between late 1957 and early 1959 with a total of 459 saloons, 5 fixed head coupes and 85 drop head coupes being built.
