In a remarkable turn of events after 30 years, the rarest of all Aston Martin models has been found rotting in a garage. In retrospect, the rusty metal junk is actually one of the rare Aston Martin DB1 models and is put up for sale with a price tag of £ 100,000. Interestingly, the expenses on damage repair and overhauling of the wreck are expected to be in excess of £ 250,000. Experts believe that an Aston Martin DB1 model in mint condition could fetch a market price of £ 400,000 at the moment.

The ultra-rare car is the 1949 made Aston Martin 2-litre Sports and was actually the fourth model manufactured by iconic British luxury automotive marque, after it was bought by David Brown. The coveted Aston Martin DB1 car is just one of the 15 models ever manufactured, with eight or nine being identified still in existence. Hence, the rusty DB1 is an immensely exclusive, desirable car and expected to fetch an exorbitant deal from a vintage car aficionado, despite its poor condition.

The rotting metal wreck is in a dire need of special care and buyer, who can spend money and restore its long lost glory again after thirty years of decay. Aston Workshop, a specialist used vintage car dealer, has put the Aston Martin DB1 wreck on the sale for an asking price of £ 99,950, hoping some faithful of the brand buys it off and restores the ultra-rare model back to its original glory days.
