A rare Aston Martin DB1 has emerged for sale for £140,000 after spending 30 years languishng in a garage.<br />
<br />
The 1949 sports vehicle was one of just 15 DB1s made by the famous British marque.<br />
<br />
They were the first production models created under the ownership of David Brown and were in the forerunners for the 'James Bond' Aston Martin DB5 cars.<br />
<br />
The DB1, which has a 2.6litre engine, was raced with some success by Aston Martin engineer Shaun Magee in the 1970s.<br />
<br />
It was bought by the current owner in 194 by which stage it needed some restoration work.
