The final production model Aston Martin DBS is among the highlights of a classic car sale at Coys in London on March 10.
The lot is valued at £25,000-40,000 ($37,959-60,735).
It was built in September 1972 and retains its original colour (Dubonnet Rosso). It also features an exceptionally low mileage (just over 40,000 on the clock), making it a particularly attractive proposition for collectors.
Coys' Chris Routledge said: "This is the ultimate barn find and an important part of Aston Martin's history. It has been sitting in a barn since 1980 and now needs to be brought back to its former glory.
"The windows are broken, the interior trim is missing and its rusty, but it's all there and there has been huge interest from collectors around the world.
"We have estimated the car at £25,000 to £40,000 in its present condition but because of its heritage it could go for an awful lot more than that."
The lot is on display at Aston Martin's showroom in Mayfair.
Nik Boxall, a spokesperson for Aston Martin, said: "The Aston Martins that normally grace our showrooms are always pristine and in top condition, but this car is very special and it is part of Aston Martin Heritage.
"Somebody will buy it, restore it and then we would love to have it back so that people can see the difference."
