Aston Martin Virage Volante 2011 Design Car Exterior Interior

Aston Martin Virage Volante 2011 Design Car Exterior Interior – The new Virage is built on the same aluminum ‘VH’ architecture that was used for the DB9 and the Rapide sedan. This VH architecture takes inspiration from the aerospace industry where weight reduction is the ultimate goal.

The model will be further distinguished by a new aluminum metal front grille with five horizontal vanes, inspired by the One-77 , a new front bumper, distinctive front wings with six LEDs, single bi-xenon headlamps, and a rear diffuser which houses a body-colored blade accentuating the width of the car.

For the interior, Aston Martin is offering a combination of seven of the finest Bridge of Weir leather used down either side of the fascia and along the seat and signature swan wing doors. The creation of the interior alone took 70 out of the 200 man hours needed to complete each vehicle, ensuring the highest quality one comes to expect from such a car.

Standard equipment on the Virage will include: a new fully integrated Satellite Navigation system that has been developed in conjunction with Garmin, heated seats (Sports seats only), cruise control, satellite navigation, Bluetooth telephone preparation, and the 700W Aston Martin Premium Audio System with Dolby Pro Logic II and full iPod integration.
