Classic Car Overview

The Aston Martin Virage is the last carrier of the true magic ofhand-built Aston Martins. And this particular one, with its 5.3 liter V8 engineand stainless-steel straight-through-exhaust pipes, is also the last one thatsounds like it.
From the only ca. 365 coupes built just 54 are over here in the United States. Yes1 of 13 with a 5 speed manual transmission. So it is unlikely you meet anotherone on the open road. A very rare car indeed. It just oozes coolness. And thewall of appreciation that the car is getting from bystanders is amazing....


Every screw and bolt has been touch by a passionate craftsman, every panel hasbeen beaten into shape by the hands of a skilled artisan. It's as if theconsciousness of the men who put this car together entered the machine and ifyou are near it you can feel that. Not unlike how Japanese sword-smith couldbestow certain character qualities on samurai swords by mentally forging theminto it as they were beating the blades to perfection.


This is why the car cost over a quarter million dollars when new. This is an incredibleopportunity to own a piece of very rare Aston Martin history at a fraction ofthe price. Values are bound to rise and have risen continuously over the lastcouple of years. This Virage is the last Aston-secret.


It looks amazingly good from every angle especially with all the modern Astonslooking the same these days. While the shape is incredibly understated, thiscar has enormous road presence. This is a big car. The design agedfantastically like an expensive wine and people not familiar with the modelhave a hard time dating it. Back in 1991 it had a number of advanceddesign-features that are common only today, such as flush fitted glass allaround, integrated bumpers, integrated rear spoiler (not even visible from mostangles) and minimal amount of shut lines.


This is a GT in the most literal sense of the word, not a sports car but agrand cruiser with plenty of power on tab (around 340 BHP in its currentconfiguration) that can push past 160 MPH. It comfortably seats two grownupsand two children.
The interior is like a first class cabin featuring wood, acres of the finestleather and an Alcan Tara headlining. I call it a "zero altitude Learjet".

This car came with the original 16" Aston aluminum wheels. Those originalwheels are included in the sale. The areas around the window frames lookexcellent as does the rest of the car.


I put the 19" Savini Avarus wheels and Goodyear low profile tires(basically still new) on the car that not only dramatically enhance the lookbut also the driving dynamics. The wheels have no scratches.

 

This is a fantastic, original preservation car that drives andsounds great. I have stored it in a climate controlled heated in winter andcooled in the summer garage.

 

This car is wrapped in 3m matte black and carbon fiber 1080 carwrap films with accent pin stripping in lime green and light blue. Thismaterial can be removed with no damage to the paint. The windows are alsotinted dark for a very dramatic look. This car turns heads and receives a lotof attention just driving down the road!

 

About the Virage in General:

The Virage was AstonMartin’s replacement for the decades-old V8 models, introduced at theBirmingham Motor show, in 1988.

This V8-powered car wasintended as the company's top model, with the 6-cylinder 1994 DB7 slotted belowit. Although the DB7 switched to a V12 engine and claimed the performancecrown, this V8 model remained the exclusive, expensive, and hand-built king ofAstons. It was replaced in 2000 with the Vanquish.

When compared to thepreceding V8, the design was fresh and more modern. It looked more like aLagonda than the V8 it replaced. Indeed, the chassis was an evolution of theLagonda's, with a de Dion tube rear suspension, located by triangulated radiusrods and a Watts linkage, and a double wishbone unit at the front.

The Virage was a largecar with an all-aluminum body, and the 32-valve 5.3L V8 engine's 364lb·fttorque elevated its performance to near super car levels. "Accelerationjust never seems to run out", claimed “Sports Car International” on afirst test. They also praised the "eager and quicker revving" natureof the 335BHP engine with its Callaway-designed heads and Weber-Marinelli fuelinjection. "Nothing sounds quite like an Aston V8," they concluded.The 3,946lb car could reach 160mph. It reaches 60mph from standing in about6.5seconds.
