The Aston Martin Virage isn’t particularly well known. Chalk it up to limited U.S. availability, less-than-attractive styling, and the way it’s overshadowed by countless other Astons. Whatever the reason, the Virage is undoubtedly a strange amalgamation of new and old, bringing both top-dollar components and obvious cost cutting measures. Under the hood is equipped a burbling V-8 engine, which is basically a refreshed take on an old design, while the steel bones receive a lightweight, hand-formed aluminum body. The interior gets lovely leather upholstery, but the various components were pulled from rival automakers. All told, the Virage is an odd Aston, but an important model nonetheless.
