Aston Martin V8 Virage: A Modern Revolution in Grand Touring
The Aston Martin V8 Virage, produced between 1988 and 1996, stands as a significant evolution in the prestigious lineage of this iconic British brand. As a grand tourer, it shifted away from previous designs to embrace a more modern aesthetic coupled with advanced engineering.
It featured a hand-built 5.3-liter V8 engine, delivering impressive power and making it one of the fastest luxury cars of its era. The vehicle was known for its exceptional handling and comfort, attributable to its well-crafted chassis and suspension.
This model marked Aston Martin's transition into a new era of luxury sports cars, reinforcing its reputation for elegance and performance. The Virage, initially introduced at the Birmingham Motor Show, became a collector's favorite, celebrated for its contribution to the marque's rich heritage.
As the flagship model, it sat above the 6-cylinder DB7 introduced in 1994, maintaining its status as the exclusive and hand-built choice in Aston Martin's range until it was succeeded by the Vanquish in 2000. Throughout its life span, 1,050 units were produced.
The second generation of the Virage, introduced in 2011, aimed to blend the DBS's technology with the comfort and refinement of the DB9 and Rapide. However, it was discontinued after 18 months due to its close similarity to the other models.
Key specifications of the Virage include a top speed of 155 mph, increasing to 174 mph post-1993 enhancements. It could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds, reduced to 5.5 seconds after 1993. The car's dimensions were 4737 x 1854 x 1321 mm, and it weighed 1790 kg. It featured front ventilated and rear solid brakes rotors, with the option of a 5-speed manual or a 3-speed automatic transmission, later updated to a 4-speed automatic.
Its design, attributed to John Heffernan and Ken Greenley, was recognized for its contemporary styling, representing the first truly new Aston Martin in nearly two decades. The Virage remains a symbol of the brand's commitment to luxury, performance, and innovation.
