The Ultimate Aston Martin Barn Find

The last original Aston Martin DBS to come off the production line has been found in a barn in Surrey and will be auctioned by international auctioneers COYS in London on March 10th.

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.

It has been sitting in a barn since 1980 and now needs to be brought back to its former glory,” said Routledge. “The windows are broken, the interior trim is missing and its 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.”

It would be really awesome to see someone buy this car, fully restore it, and show it off at some shows so we can see what it looks like in its full glory!
