British automaker Aston Martin produced the Virage between the years of 1989 and 1995. It was presented at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show and was declared to be their top of the line model. This flagship model luxury coupe was hand-built and exclusive. The well-appointed cabin was in a 2 + 2 seating configuration. It featured a V8, which set it above the 6-cylinder DB7 model that Aston Martin produced at the time.
This limited edition car featured a hand-formed, lightweight aluminum body and a luxurious interior that included fine wool carpeting and leather seats. It had a V8 5.3-liter engine capable of producing upwards of 330 hp. It used four valves per cylinder and Weber-Marelli fuel injection. It had a top speed of 157.2 mph with a 0-60 time of a mere 6.7 seconds. This front engine rear wheel drive car had a curb weight of 1790 kg or 3946 lbs and was stopped by vented disk brakes. It was available with a variety of transmissions including a 4-speed, 5-speed, 6-speed and automatic.
The Virage launch coincided with the purchase of Aston Martin, by Ford, for its premium brands group. It was quite large for a British sports car and had body stylings with distinct angles and a modern muscle car look. Some fans say that this gave the aging brand a new look, but critics say that it lacks the svelte and sexy lines of Aston Martins of the past.
By the end of its run, 1,050 Virage and related models were produced. Though a relatively new car to be called a classic, this limited run makes it poised to quickly appreciate in value, which could make it a desired car for collectors.
