Aston Martin Virage (photos)

Feeling that it had room for another coupe touring car in its lineup, Aston Martin created the Virage. This new sport coupe sits between the DB9 and DBS, but offers some new performance technology that takes Aston Martin into the 21st century.

The Virage does not represent a new design direction for the venerable British marque, but a modernization of its car engineering.

The Virage uses an active suspension system, which automatically adjusts damping based on sensor data. It also comes standard with ceramic brakes.

Aston Martin has not released extensive specs on the Virage, but it appears to have the same 6-liter V-12 as used in the DBS, which would be good for at least 510 horsepower.

The interior photos shows expected Aston Martin luxury. The presence of a Bang & Olufsen audio system is apparent from the acoustic lenses at the ends of the dashboard.

There is no shifter on the console. Similar to other Aston Martin's, buttons at the top of the stack allow drive mode selection.
