Aston Service Dorset: Virage

The Aston Martin Virage was produced from October 1988 to 1995 with chassis numbers running from AMSLR 50000 to 500426.

The car was three years in development with a revised 5.4 litre all-alloy V8 engine fitted, this had four valves per cylinder to aid breathing and over come the power problems associated with fitting catalytic converters.

The outcome was a car that met worldwide restrictions and was suitable for sale in all countries. Described in April 1990's issue of Sports Car International as,
"truly a supercar and distinctively British".

Aston Service Dorset: V8 Vantage

The Vantage was produced from April 1995 to June 1999 with chassis numbers running from AM1R 70091 to AM1R 70240.

Power was increased from 330 bhp to 550 bhp by the use of two Eaton superchargers, transmitted via a 6 speed ZF gearbox.

This ensured its reputation as an unsubtle 'muscle car' and that was before they offered the V600 upgrade option, producing 600 bhp and costing an additional £43,732 making the total price of £233,682 in October 2000.

Aston Service Dorset: V8 Coupe

The Coupe was made from March 1996 to December 1999 with chassis numbers running from 79001 to 79101, a total of 101 cars were made.

It was marketed as the successor to the Virage but with an external appearance that more resembled the Vantage though without the haunched rear end and with the addition of a new mesh front grill.

The car was often described as a 'Vantage without attitude' and benefited from a much smoother ride.

Aston Service Dorset: Le mans

The Le Mans version of the Vantage was produced to celebrate the 40 year anniversary of the the DBR1's victory at Le Mans. Only 40 cars were produced with both 550 bhp and 600 bhp engines offered.

They were made from December 1999 to October 2000 and were given chassis numbers 70229 and 70241 to 70279.

The reshaped side vents were modeled on those of the DBR1 as were the look a like pressure fuel caps.
