1992→1993 Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake

In England, shooting brake wagons are big business. Many high luxury cars such as bentleys, jaguars, and aston martins were made into shooting brakes. what this really did though was take your super expensive new sports car and turn the performance from heroic to pathetic.the Virage wagon is a classic case of this. its performance was great but add about an extra 800lbs of material onto it and its not so good anymore. what this car did excel at was fast cruising with a weekends worth of gear on your way to your mountain retreat. Call it the ultimate hot hatch.
