Identifying Aston Martins is harder than you would think!

Recommended Posts

I did a recent photo-shoot at The Aston Martin Owners Club Spring Concourse, held at The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. Part of their Centenial celebrations. There were hundreds of fabulous machines there on a rare, bright sunny day in London! I've started processing, uploading and key wording some of the images I took, but trying to get the precise model is not quite so easy as you might imagine!

John, I could be wrong, but I think the first picture D8C2DB is actually a Mark 3 not a 2/4.


I was once married into a family that collected and raced Astons, I was force fed them for about 13 years!

One of their race cars was a 3 and that one looks very much like it. If I remember rightly the 2/4 has a "lower profile" grill than the 3.


Apologies if I am wrong, it was sometime ago that I escaped that world.

You are quite right Richard,  Actually, I did discover my mistake on this one, after doing some more online research and have now changes the caption to DB Mark III!  Thanks!

Since this thread is supposed to be about discussing pictures, I thought I had  better post one!  I think this is a  rare, pre-war Aston Martin Ulster racing car, dating  back  to 1935.   Not the greatest composition in the world, but I do have a few more images  to go on, where this car is being driven.
