THE ASTON MARTIN VIRAGE

The Virage was launched and promoted as the luxury carmakers top model, and as the DB7 arrived in 1994, it was slotted in below the Virage in exclusivity and price.

The new Virage was entirely hand built with bodywork in aluminum, and sported a fresh and modern design penned by a duo of design tutors from the Royal College of Art, John Heffernan and Ken Greenley. William Town's sharp-edged Lagonda Saloon had dated quickly, but the Heffernan/Greenley Virage shape was a more timeless design, which successfully blended traditional Aston Martin styling cues, such as the grille shape and front fender vents, into a sleek fastback devoid of excessive exterior decoration.

Power was plentiful from the 32-valve DOHC V8. "Acceleration just never seems to run out", claimed Sports Car International in a road test.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the Aston Martin Works in March of 1991, this Virage was equipped with the desirable 5-speed manual transmission, rigged as a left hand example, and finished in an elegant dark green metallic over black Connolly leather interior.

The cars CARFAX attests to decades in the tri-state area, and records the car's low mileage periodically. However, it should be noted that the cars digital odometer has in the past flicked between the believed original mileage of less than 10,000 miles from new, and another reading; an electric bug that is common for Aston Martin's and Lagonda's of this era. The paint shows very well, and attests to careful and devoted enthusiast ownership, and the interior has a feel of class and exclusivity, and presents equally well.

A great GT car from the legendary maker of thoroughbred sports cars, this Virage must be considered a future collectible that offers fast and spirited performance with era-evoking styling.
