A second generation of Aston Martin’s V8 model was launched in 1988 as the Virage. It was an expensive and limited production model that had a hand-formed aluminum body, Wilton wool carpeting, Connolly leather and a 330-horsepower 5.3-liter engine.
The engine was upgraded by Callaway in Connecticut, USA with the use of four valves per cylinder and Weber-Marelli fuel injection.
The Virage presented here is finished in an unusual yet very desirable color combination of red with a tan leather interior. It is equipped with the sought-after five-speed transmission and was formerly owned by noted collector Jim Diamond, who was known for the outstanding quality of his motor car collection. It has since been acquired by another respected enthusiast, who has likewise maintained and garaged the car ever since. As presented, it shows less than 22,500 original miles and is fully equipped and original throughout.
