NEW: 2012 Aston Martin Virage

Aston Martin is coming out with this stunning new Virage for 2012. The Virage is based on Aston Martin's new VH architecture and is meant to be in between the DB9 and the DBS. It has a bonded aluminum chassis, with a combination of aluminum, magnesium and composite body panels. Aston Martin uses their signature 6.0-liter V12 with 490 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Utilizing the six-speed automatic "Touchtronic 2" gearbox to push this beast 0-60 mph in about 4.5 second. The Virage's top speed is an astonishing 186 mph!  
Aston Martin fitted a double-wishbone suspension on all four corners, with their impressive Adaptive Damping System (ADS) with Sport mode as standard equipment. This rocket has carbon ceramic disc brakes with six-piston calipers up front and four-pistons in the rear. All wrapped up with Pirelli P Zero tires as standard equipment.

 The interior wrapped in premium leather with aluminum accents. Great design details like contrast color piping on the comfortable leather sports seats and aluminum covered speaker grills. The new 'crystal' head key Aston Martin uses can be insert in the middle of the console or use it keyless. Don't break because it costs about $10k to replace. Well that's the rumor anyway.



Crystal key
There are no details on when this car actually comes out or its price range. But its probably gonna be between the price of the DB9 and the DBS.
