Aston Martin VirageWed, 23 Feb 2011 00:00:00 -0800
Aston Martin is set to revive the defunct Virage moniker at Geneva. The new Virage is not touted as a replacement for the DB9, but a new model that will sit between the DB9 and range-topping DBS.
The Virage sports clear Aston Martin DNA, looking decidedly like the two models it slides between. The new car also draws on other models in the Aston stable, with a grille inspired by the One-77. Aston states that it is the front fenders that distinguish the Virage from its stablemates, taking in LED side repeaters and featuring a new interpretation of the iconic Aston Martin side strake, details juxtaposed against Aston's signature 'swan wing' doors.
Inside, the Virage once again echoes the DB9 and DBS interiors, featuring the usual expected level of trim and finish; taking in Bridge of Weir leather, a Dolby Pro Logic II sound system and fully integrated Garmin sat-nav.
