Benefits of Driving a 2012 Aston Martin Virage Coupe

The Virage fits into the Aston Martin lineup between the DB9 grand-touring coupe and the top-performance DBS and competes with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Porsche GT2 RS--or at a lower price, the Maserati GranTurismo. As more of a high-powered grand-touring coupe, the Virage doesn't compete with exotic, track-focused sports cars, but it appeals to those who want one of the edgier offerings short of that. Yet with adaptive damping and a softer normal mode for the automatic transmission, the Virage is easy to drive and comfortable in normal traffic conditions. Modern tech conveniences like high-end audio, navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity aren't ignored, either.

What's new for 2012?

Aston Martin has brought back a model name from its past (the 1980s and '90s) for the Virage, a new model that's built on some of the same underpinnings as the DB9, but with higher performance--yet it's not quite as hard-edged as the brand's top-performance DBS. The Virage comes either as a coupe, or as a 'Volante' convertible and is powered by a 490-hp version of Aston Martin's V12 engine.

Model Strengths

  • Strong, charismatic V12
  • better comfort than a full-fledged racer
  • well-detailed interior
  • no lack of tech features
  • customization options

Model Review

The Aston Martin Virage comes in a choice of two models: the 2+2 Coupe, or the Volante convertible. Both are built on the same bonded 'VH' aluminum chassis that underpins the DB9 and the DBS sports cars, with more aggressive, dramatic sheetmetal compared to the DB9.
