Shown at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show in Coupe form, with first deliveries in 1990, the sensational new Virage re-stated its forerunner's muscular looks in the modern idiom, slightly narrower but with increased interior space. With 330bhp, a top speed approaching 160mph was possible and 60mph in under 7 seconds. By 1990 the Virage Volante was announced, with first deliveries in 1992/3. Meanwhile Aston Martin's Works Service had developed and produced a high performance version of the Virage Coupe equipped with a host of upgrades to improve the overall performance still further. The '6.3 litre package' consisted of an engine rebuilt to 6.3-litres with power rising to 465bhp and over 170mph (274kph). Front and rear suspension was uprated, with Racing Group 'C' AP anti-lock brakes, Goodyear 285/45/ZR18 tyres, and flared wide-arches to accommodate. The total package could cost in excess of £50,000. As Virage Volante production continued, some cars were specified from new with elements of the 6.3 package.
