Exotic Car Barn Find: Two Rare Aston Martin DBS Models

Aston Martin DBS

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. read more

Aston Martin exotic cars have starred in more than just James Bond flicks. Now the Aston Martin DBS from the show ‘The Persuaders’ is up for grabs at Bonhams auction. I have no idea what The Persuaders is about, but the DBS is about to change hands for a lofty sum.

The 1970 Aston Martin DBS is classic and aggressive. The car has been famous and is well-preserved and now up for grabs at auction.

This 1970 Aston Martin DBS looks more like American Muscle than British flexing. It was created with special mods specifically for its starring role in The Persuaders, and was a prominent point in all 24 episodes of the television series. The two leading stars, Roger Moore and Tony Curtis, both signed the inside of the boot lid. read more
