A British revival

Aston Martin, the evocative British sportscar manufacturer, revived a proud name in the new Aston Martin Virage.

The Virage arrives either as a 2 seater or a 2+2 seat car, and can be had as a coupe or convertible (Volante). The Virage features the latest styling from Aston Martin, and has a new, hand-built 6.0 liter V12 that is capable of 490 horsepower and 570 Newton meters of torque, allowing the Virage to do 100 km/h below 5 seconds. With the 6-speed Touchtronic II transmission mounted in the rear, the Virage benefits from a perfect 50:50 weight balance from front to rear, with handling further helped along by an Adaptive Damping System.

The Virage sits between the DB9 and DBS, providing customers with a car that remains luxurious and understated but delivers increased performance and crucially performance that is always accessible for effortless driving. The Virage is on sale now.
