About the 1992 V8 Virage Volante For Sale

​Hand built by Aston Martin in 1992, Chassis 003 was the launch car for the 2+2 Virage Volante and displayed by Aston Martin at the 1992 Geneva Motor show, finished in Giallo Fly (Yellow) with Tan hides and manual transmission. This ex’ factory owned Virage Volante was subsequently sold by Aston Martin directly, to form part of the renowned Brunei collection, after being extensively rebuilt by Aston Martin into its current and ultimate Virage configuration, becoming the first of just 19 Virage Volante’s built to full 6.3 Litre Wide Body Specifications.

Returning to the Newport Pagnell Works in 1998 for refurbishment, all later specification braking, suspension, wheel and tyre equipment, transmission, interior fittings and instrumentation were simultaneously applied and the car equipped with the latest ABS and air bag safety systems.

Remaining in climate-controlled storage in the UK, this ultimate specification Virage Volante, was subsequently resold and UK registered in 1999 having covered a mere 100 miles. The second owner, a long-term Aston Martin enthusiast, covered just under 20,000 miles, over his 19 years of ownership with all services and maintenance having been carried out by Aston Martin main agents.

Refurbishment Works completed

​​In 2016 this car was sold to a collector who commissioned refurbishment works, including a full body bare metal re-paint in Aston Martin Gallaway Green, a new tailored woven fabric roof covering and the engine removed, dismantled, rebuilt and dynamometer tested. A printed Dyno sheet, dated 2020 and included in the extensive history file, records 490 bhp at 6,200 RPM with a maximum torque at 4,500 RPM of 443 Lbs ft.

Purchased in 2018 by the last owner, a prominent AMOC member, a number of discrete upgrades and a detailing programme has latterly been carried out, to concours winning standards.

Chosen by the discerning selection committee of the prestigious 2023 Concours of Elegance, held at Hampton Court Palace, for inclusion in their main concours car display, as well as having recorded class wins at AMOC organised concours events, as recently as 2022, we do not know of any finer example of the model to exist.

With its extreme rarity, prodigious performance, it’s outstanding concours condition, low mileage and with its Geneva Motor show credentials, this reference quality example of the 6.3 litre Virage Volante, an ‘Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove’, undoubtedly qualifies as the best in breed and is likely to be unrepeatable, at the price level being sought.
