The Aston Martin Virage is designed to sit between the DB9 and DBS in the company's range.

Essentially the Virage blends the understated luxury of the DB9, with more power and performance - similar to the DBS.

Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez said: "100 years of automotive history has demonstrated that evolution delivers the best solutions in time. So it is with Virage; it is the next level of evolution in our VH architecture strategy and it does everything with the perfection that you would expect today. It is the perfect balance of opposites."

Powering the Aston Martin Virage is a hand-built 6.0 litre V12 which produces 490 horsepower and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft). Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission and carbon-fiber prop shaft.

The Aston Martin Virage's handling has been engineered to deliver an engaging yet more refined driving experience. A newly developed Adaptive Damping System (ADS) constantly adjusts the suspension system to provide optimum road holding, adapting to different conditions. The system now selects up to five different stiffness settings within normal mode, and a further five stiffer settings within sport mode.

The Virage features a 'Sport' button on the facia which allows the driver to select a sharper throttle response and faster gear changes, while also holding the gears without automatically shifting up at the revolution limiter.

The Aston Martin Virage is equipped with Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes as standard. Powerful, resistant to fade and much lighter than conventional cast-iron discs, the CCM braking system helps reduces overall weight, and additionally the lower rotational mass improves acceleration.

The Virage features single bi-xenon headlights which neatly follow the lines of the car's bodywork to give a more crisp and modern appearance from the front. A new aluminium metal front grille, inspired by the One-77 supercar, features five horizontal vanes which are chamfered creating an aerofoil profile. The new front bumper is clean and uncluttered, contributing to the overall simplicity of design. The Virage's side sills extend the neatness of the front bumper through to the rear diffuser.
