A recently discovered Aston Martin DBS, reported to be the last off the production line, has sold for £43,240
A ‘barn find’ 1972 Aston Martin DBS, apparently the final car ever produced, has just been sold at Coys’ 10 March Spring Classic auction for £43,240.
The Dubonnet Rosso DBS was initially given an estimate of £25,000-£40,000, after it was discovered in a barn in Surrey by Chris Routledge, the Managing Partner of the auction house. Upon checking the chassis number, it turned out that the September ’72 car was in fact the last DBS off the line.
With around 40,000 miles on the clock the car was taken off the road in 1980, where it remained until recently, now looking slightly worse for wear.
Chris Routledge commented on the sale: ‘A great ending to a fantastic story. The car has been sold to an Aston Martin collector who is so excited about having the opportunity to restore the very last production DBS that has almost started to do the work in the auction room.’
