For Your Eyes Only: Aston Martin Virage

by Gunnar Heinrich ::: img SportsCarShop.com ::: 1991 Aston Martin Virage

AT least a decade behind its time and featuring enough borrowed parts from Audi, Chrysler, VW and Ford that you could be forgiven for thinking it a kit car, the Aston Martin Virage coupe remains nonetheless a very special red herring for Aston.

Only 365 coupes were produced between 1989 and 1995 and despite prodigious power: a 5.3 L V8 producing 330 hp and 364 lb-ft torques, a Chryco sourced three-speed slush box and hefty 4,000 pound saddle ensured grand-touring rather than sports car performance (0-60 in 6.5 seconds).

This Virage is hold up in Oregon (pronounced Ore-GEHN, never Ore-GON), is offered @ $48K and has a sly Roger Moore twinkle in its Audi 200-sourced-eye. For those, clearly, of particular taste.

Thanks, Jim!
