New Aston Martin Virage Revealed

Aston Martin will be revealing its new £150,000 work of art ‘The Aston Martins Virage’ at the Geneva show; Although set not to replace the DB9, the Virage is playing all the right cards that’s suggest other-wise in our opinion. The name ‘Virage’ shows the revival for the 1990s model name that lands between the DB9 and the DBS with a perfect fit.

Boosting a 6.0-litre V12 engine with a recorded 490bhp which by the way is the mid-way between the DB9’s 470bhp and the DBS’s 510bhp and a combined with a 420lb ft of torque; which in plain and simple English, it goes 0-62mph sprint in 4.6secs and a top speed of 186mph. We are certainly inclined to disagree with Aston about the Virage not being the replace of the DB9.

Attempting a very thin line between the DB9 and DBS is not an easy task but the Virage might have seemed to have pulled it off with some impressive tweaking of the carbon-ceramic brakes, 10 different stiffness settings between the normal and sport Adaptive Damping Systems (ADS), a ‘Sport’ button on the facia which allows drivers to select a sharper throttle response for faster gear changes.

A new intergrated joystick control for the Garmin sat-nav makes life a lot easier in terms of control and to cap it off, standard equipment for the Virage stands at cruise control, Bluetooth and heated seats (Sport seats only).
