Virage Coupe

2008 - 2012

The Virage Coupe is a sports GT which offers seating for either two or four occupants and a highly adaptive suspension system, making it an all-rounder that delivers practicality along with style and pace. From the outside the low stance, visible front intakes, 20" five-spoke alloy wheels and pronounced side sills display the Virage’s athleticism.

Bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights and the famous Aston Martin grille accentuate the vehicle’s rakish frame. The design of the interior is a similarly tasteful exercise, with full-grain leather, high-gloss wood and a graphite/iridium silver centre console.

Overview

The Virage Coupe is a civilised car with the emphasis on comfort and convenience. Nevertheless, it is still highly capable in terms of performance. Its 6.0-litre V12 engine offers a maximum of 490bhp, acceleration from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds, and a top speed of 183mph.

In keeping with the Virage’s emphasis on usability, however, the engine and transmission have been designed for thrust at ordinary road speeds rather than sheer power. 85% of its 570Nm of torque is available at 1500rpm, making acceleration at low and middling speeds extremely brisk – very useful for the varied pace of urban or suburban driving. The noise produced by the usually raucous Aston Martin unit has also been toned down – again, this fits in better with the car’s relatively restrained character.

Technology

Aston Martin Virage Coupe

The Virage’s transmission is a rear mid-mounted six-speed “Touchtronic 2” automatic gearbox, which is shifted by paddles mounted on the steering column. The speed and control of the power delivery when accelerating is mirrored when decreasing your speed, due to the strong yet lightweight carbon ceramic brakes.

One of the most notable features of the Virage is its dual-mode adaptive damping system. The suspension has 10 different settings (five in “Normal” and five in “Sport” mode), enabling you to attain the right balance between comfort and manoeuvrability with some precision. A variety of active safety features contribute to the stability of the vehicle when coping with difficult hazards on the road.
