The Aston Martin Virage was officially unveiled eighteen months ago, but already the British company has announced it will stop production of the coupe and convertible positioned between the more basic DB9 and the flagship DBS.
Just over 1,000 units of the Virage Coupé and Volante were built. But the planned arrival of new DB9 would render the Aston Martin “in-the-middle” obsolete.
Therefore Aston Martin will drop the Virage in favor of the new DB9 which will feature a more aggressive styling and more power. This move leaves no room for the Virage, hence its short-lived lifespan. Most likely the upgrade of the DB9 will result in an increase in price, but at this stage this is fuel for speculation.

Just over 1000 units? That’s even less than an F40!
I wonder why they stop making Aston Martin Virage. Is it because it is not appealing to people anymore? But I don’t think that is the reason. Well, whatever the reason is, for me, Aston Martin still got nice designs for cars.
