There’s a pretty wide range of colors to choose from, plus you can request any paint code used by Aston Martin or any other manufacturer, there are also plenty of interior trim types and leather tones available.
There are a number of other exotic sports or big touring cars such as the Audi R8, Bentley Continental GT, Jaguar XKR, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, and Porsche 911 Turbo. Each version offers a unique driving experience with wildly varying price tags. The 2012 Aston Martin Virage may not be the ultimate driver’s car, but what it lacks in maximum excitement it makes up for with stunning good looks, everyday handling, and loads of character.
2024 Aston Martin Virage : Interior
Inside, the interior of the Virage uses seven premium posts from Scandinavia and takes more than 70 man-hours to complete. Easily deciphered buttons combine with a central display to create a user-friendly interface, and the dash-mounted transmission selector will never get old. The Virage was the first Aston to feature a massively improved Garmin-sourced navigation system and 6.5-inch high-definition display, but Aston Martin’s electronic interface is a bit behind the times. Virage also retains the flashy Aston Martin instruments and their strange counter-rotating dials. Although the trip computer has a digital speedometer as a backup, the small numbers of the speedometer also render it largely useless.
The driver’s seat is extraordinarily comfortable with ample leg and headroom for taller drivers. But since no people will fit in the back seat, you can opt for the storage rack offered on the coupe instead. The trunk for larger items is quite generous for an exotic sports car; 6.5 cubic feet for the coupe and 5.4 cubic feet for the Volante. As for the Volante, visibility isn’t great with the roof up, and wind blasts can be tiring.
2024 Aston Martin Virage : Engine
The Virage is powered by a V12 engine with the same thrilling experience as the Aston Martin DB11 and Aston Martin DBS and has plenty of power accompanied by the amazing cry song. The rear-wheel drive 2012 Aston Martin Virage is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 that produces 490 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. A conventional six-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles is standard. Aston Martin estimates the Virage will sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and claims a top speed of 300 km/h. The heavier convertible Volante version should be several times slower.
