Aston Martin presents the new Virage

Aston Martin marquee must be really proud of their new, powerful sportscar. The British car has a front mid-mounted V12 engine. As Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez describes the car we find out that Virage is the best way to go. It is their next level of VH architecture strategy and has everything you expect it to have.
The hand-built V12 6.0-liter engine provides all the power needed for a convertible, while delivering it through a carbon fiber prop shaft to a six speed Touchtronic ll transmission mounted on the transaxle contributes to perfect 50:50 weight balance.
The car has a new developed Adaptive Damping System and it follows the road to provide optimum road holding, adapting to different conditions.
The new Virage has a "Sport" button that allows the driver to select a sharper throttle response and faster gear changes, and in the same time holds the gears without automatically shifting up at the rev limiter. The Aston Martin Virage will have Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes as standard.
