THE last original Aston Martin DBS to come off the production line has been found in a barn in Surrey and will be sold by international auctioneers Coys in London on March 10.
The car was discovered by Chris Routledge, the managing partner of the auction house, and is one of the features of Coys ‘Spring Classics’ auction at the Royal Horticultural Society.
Aston Martin Mayfair is hosting the barn find car for a week before the event takes place.
Chris Routledge said: “This is the ultimate barn find and an important part of Aston Martin’s history. It has been sitting in a barn since 1980 and now needs to be brought back to its former glory.”
He added: “The windows are broken, the interior trim is missing and it’s rusty, but it’s all there and there has been huge interest from collectors around the world.
“We have estimated the car at £25,000 to £40,000 in its present condition but because of its heritage it could go for an awful lot more than that.”
