Flash alert!! Solution found for VIC – see last three posts below
This section is about the Aston-Martin Virage, the last of the true hand-built Astons. If you want to see why Virage owners love the car so much, this video beautifully shows it in motion and describes the feelings it evokes. As the last of the ‘real’ Astons, it’s value has been slow in appreciating, but they are starting to really pick up in price now.
I’ve owned one for the last 17 years or so, and have learned a lot of expensive lessons. This set of pages contains a summary of what I have found out about keeping the Virage running. Just about everything interesting has been discovered by my talented brother-in-law, who lovingly looks after it in Yorkshire.
