The Volante convertible had been the big seller of the ‘old’ V8 line-up, so the only surprise was that it took Aston Martin more than two years from the Virage coupé’s introduction to come up with a soft-top equivalent, making its debut at the Birmingham Motor show in 1988. Designed by John Heffernan and Ken Greeley it was praised for its fresh contemporary styling. It proved to be quieter and more comfortable than the earlier V8’s and was indeed the first truly new Aston Martin in nearly 20 years.
The new V8 engine was a development of the tried and tested 5.3 litre V8, but with new cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder for better breathing and to overcome power losses inevitable with the use of catalytic converters.
Our beautiful Virage Volante is presented in its original colour scheme of BMW Diamond Black Edinburgh with a Black mohair convertible hood. The interior is upholstered in Parchment hide piped with Black with a Parchment Alcantara headlining and Black carpets, all remain in superb condition throughout. There can be few better Virage Volantes currently available than this clearly well cared for example and is offered with a Aston Martin heritage certificate.
It is certainly very well equipped, boasting air conditioning, electric heated leather seats, power-assisted steering, power seats and adjustable tilt steering wheel a stylish and luxurious modern classic that is ready for its new custodian.
