2012 Aston Martin Virage Volante

The Aston Martin Virage Volante was produced for only a single year, with a total production number of 388 Volante examples ever built and just 81 examples in UK right hand drive, making the Virage Volante the rarest of the 1st generation of Gaydon era ‘Grand Touring’ Aston Martins.

The Virage, introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show was a model designed to fit in the Aston Martin range between the DB9 and the more focused DBS. The Virage Volante also included a number of elegant cosmetic upgrades over the DB9 specification, almost all of the body panels were brand new and the car sat both lower and wider than the DB9. The Bi-xenon headlamps with LED side lights / indicators had already been used on the 4 door Rapide and the new grille was inspired by the one used on the One-77 where the five horizontal vanes have an aerofoil profile. The side strakes were the longest ever used on a production Aston Martin and ran above the grille aperture for the first time rather than the traditional middle line. All of this combined to give the Virage Volante an overall more opulent feel over the DB9.

The Virage Volante’s hand-assembled naturally aspirated 6.0 litre V12 engine produces 490 bhp, an increase in power of 20 bhp on the then performance of a DB9, and 420 lb ft of torque. With a top speed of 186 mph and a 0 - 62 of just 4.6 second, the Virage Volante was one the fastest convertible GTs in the world at the time of manufacture.

Particular attention was given to making the Virage more refined than the DB9. One of the ways this was achieved was with additional sound insulation on the front and rear bulkheads. Another was a revised version of the adaptive damping system, developed with Bilstein as also used on the DBS but tuned for a GT rather than a sportscar as in the DBS. The Virage Volante was also supplied as standard with brakes based on those already in use on the DBS with cross drilled Carbon Ceramic Matrix discs.

With more reserved body styling than the DBS, greater performance than the DB9 and low production numbers, perhaps it's more fitting to think of the Virage Volante as a modern-day ‘Prince of Wales’ specification.

Registered to its first and only owner in March 2012, the car offered has covered only 5,300 miles in total. Finished in the superb colour combination of Onyx Black over Obsidian Black hides with chancellor red stitching. The car is complimented by a black fabric hood and 20inch 5 spoke silver wheels.

In addition to its standard specifications, this 2012 model year example benefits from numerous additional extras, including alarm upgrade, premium audio, red brake callipers, embroidered chancellor red Virage logo and front parking sensors. The useful wind deflector is also supplied with the car along with a storage case for when not in use. The car is also supplied with its original umbrella as well as an Aston Martin battery conditioner.
