ASTON MARTIN VIRAGE VIRAGE 1990
The first public launch was at the 1988 Birmingham International Motor Show; the Aston Martin Virage succeeded the previous generation of V8 models coach-built cars from the Aston Martin Lagonda factory at Newport Pagnell.
Although still constructed using traditional methods, of steel chassis and aluminum bodies’s the Virage was a more modern vision on what had gone before, and included a revised 5.3 liter V8 with 4 valves per cylinder and catalytic converters as well as the more contemporary body styling.
This particular special Virage should not be viewed in the same way as any other Virage’s. Chassis number 50079 was built for the personal collection of a member of overseas royalty, resulting in a car that is truly unique. During 1998, the car underwent a remarkable enhancement program by Aston Martin Works Service that included a complete mechanical refurbishment bringing the engine and transmission up to the very latest specification, the brakes and suspension upgraded to sports dynamics, a complete bare metal re-spray to the traditional British Racing Green and the interior completely re-trimmed in deep red using special grain Connolly hides, Wilton carpets and revised instrumentation including a steering wheel incorporating a driver’s airbag.
The later V8 coupe wheels really finish the car and benefit from the larger brakes. The later uprated automatic gearbox with the sport mode option fitted. The leather luxurious leather continues through the roof and rear pillars.
Finished in its original build colour scheme with so many little very special touches to make the car so unique in so many ways, this car is in fantastic condition throughout, befitting the mileage of just 12,000 miles from new.
Supplied with an extensive history file which includes details of the refurbishment in 1988 and subsequent maintenance, all carried out by marque specialists, this is now offered for sale with service to schedule and a 12-month warranty including roadside assistance and MOT.
A coach-built car fit for royalty, this particular Aston Martin must be seen to be fully appreciated and is now available by appointment.
