THIS is the moment an urban explorer finds an incredible £35,000 Aston Martin abandoned in a car graveyard.
The YouTuber, known as The Bearded Explorer, posted a clip of the eerie discovery on his channel.
He marveled at the classic and said, “I can’t believe the condition of this car.”
“It’s heartbreaking to see it left here since 2013.”
“This is absolutely criminal.”
The vehicle’s tax disc shows the cover expired in November 2013, while a DVLA check shows it was registered with a statutory off-road notice (SORN).
This means the owner of the Aston has told the DVLA that it will not be put on the road, so it will not have to be taxed or insured.
The video shows the paint severely chipped and worn, while mold has formed on the top and blackberry bushes grow through the windshield wipers.
Rust also appears to have set in, while condensation on the windows suggests a problem with moisture inside.
The explorer was able to open a door and climb in, revealing the former glory of the sports car’s red and black interior.
However, it is now covered in a thick layer of dust and cobwebs.
Even the fluffy dice hanging from the rearview mirror look worn.
The explorer added: “This should never happen to a car like this. It’s such a shame.”
Social media commentators were quick to agree.
One wrote: “I drive past it quite regularly, it always baffles me why such a beautiful car was left behind.”
Another added: “I’m in tears, why is this happening?”
And a third said: “Makes you want to go down with a portable pressure washer and blow the moss off.”
Perhaps worst of all, the car has retained a good portion of its value over the years.
According to the registration it is a V12 Vantage model from 2003.
Equivalent Astons from the same year are available online for up to £35,000 if they are in good condition.
It came after a £300,000 DB4 once owned by a “real-life James Bond” was found in a shed in Devon.
Meanwhile, a group of Australian TikTokers discovered a vintage car graveyard hidden behind a house in Melbourne.
