2011 Aston Martin Virage
Aston Martin has introduced a new model – Virage, which of course will be exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show.
Virage will fulfill the gap between DB9 and DBS models in the Aston Martin line-up. Still, it looks much more like DB9 with new headlights, restyled grille and front fenders. There will be a Volante version, too, which is kind of sexy.
Aston Martin Virage is powered by 6.0 liter V12 with 497PS (365 kW) and 570Nm (420 lb-ft). The engine is mated to a 6-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission. 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and top speed of 299 km/h (186 mph).
The car is made of a bonded aluminum structure with an aluminum, magnesium alloy and composite body on top of it. It has 50:50 total weight distribution, which makes handling awesome.
Virage also boasts an Adaptive Damping System (ADS) and Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes.
The interior is superb - a Walnut fascia trim and Iridium Silver center console.
Price list will be announced in next two weeks.
