Aston Martin Virage was first launched at the British motor show in Birmingham October 1988 by Victor Gauntlettâs team and after larger number of suggestions the name Virage (bend of corner in French) was used. The car had great mixed reports from the media and a large number of orders were placed at the time of the show. The Virage Volante was not launched until 1990 Birmingham Motor show. Production started in roll the cars out to the new owner in Autumn 1992 and a total of 426 Virage Coupes and seven Virage LE (Limited Editions) were built including a number of 2 door shooting brakes and four door shooting brakes, four door cars and a number of special bodied cars carried out by the Aston Martin Works Service department. The total number of Virage Volanteâs built was 234 and the last seven cars were wide body and used the later V8 Coupe engine with a four speed automatic gearbox with sport mode used in the later V8 Coupe. This car was the very last Aston Martin Virage Volante ever built chassis number 60234. The car has the V8 Coupe engine and four speed gearbox, the 6.3 cosmetic wide body, finished in DB7 Mendip Blue paint with Parchment Connelly leather trim piped with Pacific blue, dark blue Wilton carpets, with blue Mohair hood covering. The car has a great service history file with only two previous owners and 22,500 miles, with a full tool kit, original service and handbook and keys. The original OZ polished wheels are in outstanding condition. Just a lovely example of the very last Aston Martin Virage Volante built.
