Finished in Cannock Black with Black hides, this Virage coupe we are delighted to offer, is no ordinary Virage. It is, most probably the Ultimate Virage.
Delivered when new in 1991 to its first owner, this car formed part of a significant overseas collection of exotic cars, before being shipped to Aston Martin Works in the late 1990’s for significant and major upgrades, under the direct supervision of Kingsley Riding-Felce, the Service Director in period.
The vehicles rebuild to the unique specifications, similar to the later V8 Coupe, were commissioned by the overseas owner, with no budgetary constraint. With all works carried out to the highest standards by Newport Pagnell’s craftsmen and engineers.
Remaining in the UK after completion, before being sold due to domestic complications, this significant Virage with its ultimate specifications, has subsequently been maintained expertly by renowned specialists and ourselves, whilst covering the 7,400 miles, now recorded.
Accompanying the car is a full record of the transformative works carried out, service and maintenance invoices, MoT’s, build details and magazine feature.
Abbreviated summary of the upgrades carried out:
•Engine rebuild to V8 Coupe 350 bhp specification
•New 4 speed auto transmission and axle ratio change
•Installation of Sports Suspension and 17’’ road wheels
•New V8 coupe derived ABS braking
•Installation of later steering column and wheel with Air Bag system
•Installation of 1996 MY, dashboard and all new instrumentation.
•Bare metal Repaint in original colour
•Complete re-trim in Connolly special grade hides and seats reshaped for comfort. New Black Wilton carpets and Connolly hide headlining.
In summary, this particular Virage is like no other, more powerful, significantly quieter and refined, more comfortable and indeed safer, than its peers. With all of the upgrades carried out, by the original manufacturer, at great expense, this unique and example of the 1990’s Newport Pagnell hand built production cars, is simply ‘in a class far above the average example’ Classic Cars Magazine.
