The coupe version of Aston Martin’s new 2012 Virage got a lot of attention at its recent Geneva Motor Show debut. Much better looking yet all but ignored was its sexier sibling, the Virage Volante.
“The stats: 0-60 mph: 4.5 seconds Top speed: 186 mph. Price: $210,000-plus”
Positioned just below the decadent DBS, James Bond’s vehicle of choice, the Virage has a suitably rakish skin over an aluminum, magnesium and composite chassis and body panels, with a hand-built throaty 490 hp 6-liter V12 lurking within.
A true GT in the best Aston tradition, the leather interior is of course as well-tailored as one of Bond’s Savile Row suits.
