The new Aston Martin Virage model has been premiered at the Geneva Motor Show this week after it was revealed by the British automaker two weeks ago. The Virage is basically a facelifted DB9 with new headlamps, grille and fenders but it’s meant to be a new 2+2 sport coupe that will sit between the DB9 and the DBS models in the company’s lineup.
Virage is made of a bonded aluminum structure with an aluminum, magnesium alloy and composite body on top of it, making this car really light.
It’s powered by a hand-built 6.0 liter V12 engine which is able to produce 490 bhp and 570 Nm of torque and it’s connected to a six speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission and a carbon fiber prop shaft. With this engine, the Aston Martin Virage is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 299 km/h.
The Virage will also come with state-of-the-art technologies such as an Adaptive Damping System which intelligently reads the road for better handling, Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes as standard and a Sport mode which adapts the car’s driving dynamics for a sportier ride.
