Feature Flick: Defining the Purpose of the Aston Martin Virage on Ignition

June 5, 2012
Aston Martin Virage Power Slide
On this week's episode of Ignition, host Carlos Lago gets behind the Aston Martin Virage and aims to find out just how well it slots between the luxurious DB9 and sporty DBS.
Lago begins by explaining Aston Martin's reasoning for wanting to fill every conceivable niche in its lineup, something that lead to the creation of the new Virage. With its 5.9-liter V-12 pumping out 490 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, the Virage slots between the luxurious DB9 and sporty DBS quite well. Lago's experience at the test track also seems to confirm that, with the Virage putting down performance numbers between the DB9 and DBS in almost all categories.
After an impromptu smoke show on the track, Lago takes the Virage into the real world, where he explains the true purpose of the new Aston Martin.
