The Virage was launched and promoted as the luxury carmakers top model, and as the DB7 arrived in 1994, it was slotted in below the Virage in exclusivity and price.
The new Virage was entirely hand built with bodywork in aluminum, and sported a fresh and modern design penned by a duo of design tutors from the Royal College of Art, John Heffernan and Ken Greenley. William Town’s sharp-edged Lagonda Saloon had dated quickly, but the Heffernan/Greenley Virage shape was a more timeless design, which successfully blended traditional Aston Martin styling cues, such as the grille shape and front fender vents, into a sleek fastback devoid of excessive exterior decoration.
Power was plentiful from the 32-valve DOHC V8. “Acceleration just never seems to run out”, claimed Sports Car International in a road test.
