Watch as incredible Aston Martin V12 worth £35k is found abandoned in a car 'graveyard' | The Sun

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 to his channel.

Marvelling at the classic, he said: "I cannot believe the condition of this car.

"It is heartbreaking to see that it's been left here since 2013.

"This is absolutely criminal."

The car's tax disk shows that its cover ran out in November 2013, while a DVLA check shows that it has been registered with a Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN).

This means that the Aston's owner has told the DVLA that it will not be taken out on the road, allowing it to not be taxed or insured.

The video shows its paint heavily chipped and worn away, while mould has set in on the soft-top and brambles grow through the windscreen wipers.

Rust also appears to have taken hold, while the condensation on the windows suggests an issue with damp inside.

The explorer was able to open a door and hop on, revealing the former glory of the sports car's red and black interior.

Now though, it is covered in a thick layer of dust and cobwebs.

Even the fuzzy dice hanging from the rear-view mirror look worn out.

The explorer added: "This should never happen to a car like this. It is such a shame."

Social media commenters were quick to agree.

One wrote: "I drive past this quite regularly, always baffles me why such a nice car was left."

Another added: "I am tearing up, why does this happen?"

And a third said: "Makes you want to go down with a portable jet washer and blast the moss off it."

Perhaps worst of all, the car has retained a good chunk of its value over the years.

The registration reveals it to be a 2003 V12 Vantage model.

Equivalent Astons from the same year are available online for as much as £35,000 if they are in good condition.
