Designed by John Heffernan and Ken Greeley, the Aston Martin Virage
made its debut at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988. It was praised
for its fresh contemporary styling and was a quieter and more
civilized approach to that of the earlier Aston V8's. It was the
first truly new Aston Martin in nearly 20 years and the new V8
engine was a development of the tried and tested 5.3 liter V8, but
with new designed cylinder heads, featuring four valves per
Sports Car International praised the "eager and quicker revving"
nature of the 330hp engine, with its Callaway-designed heads and
Weber-Marelli fuel injection. "Acceleration just never seems to run
out" they concluded.
The Virage Volante debuted at the 1990 Birmingham Motor Show as a
strict two-seater, but a 2+2 version was shown at the 1991 Geneva
Motor Show. Production numbers are estimated to be between 224 and
233 examples by the time production ended in 1996.
The Wide Body conversion by Aston Martin Works Service became
available for the Volante during 1992, which included the Cosmetic
Widebody consisting of the wide body conversion with larger front
air dam and larger OZ Racing split rim wheels.
This example is 1 of only 13 Widebody Volantes imported to the USA
making it extremely rare.
