Shown at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show in Coupe form, with first deliveries in 1990, the sensational new Virage re-stated its forerunner’s muscular looks in the modern idiom, slightly narrower but with increased interior space. With 330bhp, a top speed approaching 160mph was possible and 60mph in under 7 seconds. By 1990 the Virage Volante was announced, with first deliveries in 1992/3. Meanwhile Aston Martin’s Works Service had developed and produced a high performance version of the Virage Coupe equipped with a host of upgrades to improve the overall performance still further.
1 of just 3 examples produced with this exclusive coachwork incorporating the front and rear styling of the Supercharged V8 Vantage model. This particular example is finished in handsome Rolls-Royce Royal Blue with Magnolia hides in piped blue. Walnut veneers and a blue Mohair hood finish the luxurious specifications. Equipped with automatic transmission, Sports exhaust and comprehensive Hi-Fi, Bluetooth, I-pod integration and reversing camera. Sold previously by Nicholas Mee & Co, and featuring in their FullBore E Magazine (Issue 13), this stunning and highly equipped example has covered under 10,000 miles from new and received over 20 Aston Martin services, regardless of the low miles. Without doubt one of the finest Virage Volante examples we have seen, this exclusive car, costing circa £250k when new, is in outstanding condition throughout.
