Aston Martin Virage Unleashed
I was surprised to find out that Aston Martin will bring to Geneva a new model, dubbed Virage. It is a very beautiful car but in my opinion it looks too familiar if we have a quick look at what other cars Aston offers. It will be available as a hard-top model or a Volante edition and it measures 4703 mm in length, 1904 mm in width, 1282 mm in height and has a 2740 mm wheelbase.
Under that beautiful hood is a powerful V12 6.0-liter 48-valve engine that produces 490 hp (497 PS / 365 kW) @ 6,500 rpm and 420 lb.-ft (570 Nm) of torque @ 5,750 rpm. Thanks to this impressive engine, the Virage will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.6 seconds, onto a top speed of 186 mph (299 km/h).
All this power will be send through the rear wheels via the rear mid-mounted Touchtronic 2x 6-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift by wire system. The car also benefits from a limited slip differential, good for cornering.
Although the British automaker didn’t offer any information about the car’s price, they said that the model is already available for sale at the dealerships. Some of the optional features of the Virage include the 700W Aston Martin Premium Audio System with Dolby Pro Logic II, iPod integration and bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights.
We’ll have more information once Aston Martin brings the Virage to Geneva this March.
