For a long time, the Aston Martin was the gold standard for the handmade English sports car. It had become a bit of a dinosaur in the mid 80s so a new, less costly model was needed. A design competition was called and 5 design teams participated. One of the requirements was that the body had to fit onto a shortened Lagonda chassis. Ken Greenley and John Hefferman’s design was selected. The existing V-8 engine was modernizwed and 4 valves per cylinder led to 340 powerful PS. The new design was first presented at the Birmingham Motorshow.
Our Aston Martin Virage Volante is registered in Germany. This young classic was part of a collection and has only been driven approx. 8,000 kms. After a long hiatus in the garage it has been dusted off and brought back to live at a specialty repair shop. So this is practically a “new” car despite its 24 years of age!
