Yet another car name added to the Aston Martin lineup. So, what is different about the new Aston Martin Virage? Nothing but just another name. The Aston Martin Virage will be available as a coupe and cabriolet, and it will sit between the DBS and DB9 models.
The Aston Virage Coupe and the Cabriolet are both equipped with the same 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 497 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission mounted on the transaxle to provide optimum weight distribution.
Performance wise, Aston Martin claims that the Virage can sprint from 0-62 mph in about 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 188 mph. That’s about 0.2 second faster than the Aston Martin DB9 but slow about 0.3 second slower than the DBS model.
Just like other current Aston Martin models, the Virage comes with a new Adaptive Damping System (ADS) with a specific tune, as well as a Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system with bespoke settings, and standard Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes.
Really, looking at the Aston Martin Virage, you can’t tell if it’s a DBS, DB9 or a Virage. But here are a few minor differences, the Virage comes with a new aluminum front grille with five horizontal slits, a revised front bumper, and new LED lights on the front wings.
As for the interior, the 2+2 seater Virage comes with a leather interior, cruise control, satellite navigation, Bluetooth telephone capability and a 700W Aston Martin Premium Audio System with Dolby Pro Logic II and full iPod integration.
Don’t get us wrong, the Aston Martin Virage is a beautiful car. In the end, the Aston Martin Virage is just another DB version with another name. But the stunning video below just might prove us wrong.
