The occasional exotic car barn find is not rare, but a set of nearly identical Aston Martin twins has been found. The set of Aston Martin DBS cars were discovered stowed away for over a decade and have been shipped off to a garage for some revitalization. The twins engines are still turning, which is incredible after such a lengthy hibernation period.
Not one but two Aston Martin DBS cars have been discovered in a barn. Both are the DBS, with one born in 1969 and the other in 1970.
The twin exotic sports cars hail from a private collection, and had been nearly forgotten as the owner’s health declined. Twin number one is a 1969 Aston Martin DBS Vantage with a manual transmission. It is a rarity due to the fact that just 70 examples were created with right-hand-drive and a manual gearbox. It features a straight-six and has its birth certificate and owner’s handbook intact.
The photos of the DBS Aston Martins above are their first in over a decade. They have been rescued and will be restored.
Twin number two (Plate EGU 29H) is a 1970 Aston Martin DBS. This one boasts a 5.0-liter V8 engine with just under 28,000 miles on it. It needs a bit of attention but the interior and exterior of both twins has held up considerably well. The set should fetch a good price at auction due to their conditions, rare perks and unique story. Will the same buyer want two Aston Martin cars with similar colors and histories? They hit the auction block at Silverstone Auctions Restoration Sale today, April 12th, 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham.
The interior is in decent condition
