    Lancée au Salon International de l'Automobile de Birmingham en octobre 1988, la sensationnelle nouvelle Virage exprima les qualités esthétiques de l'allure musclée de sa devancière dans un nouveau langage en contribuant à la rendre un peu plus étroite tout en augmentant l'habitabilité. La voiture n'était pas allégée pour autant, mais ses 330 ch délivrés par de nouvelles culasses à 32 soupapes coiffant un V8 fiable suffisaient à lui conférer une vitesse de pointe proche de 260 km/h et un temps de 0 à 100 km/h inférieur à 7 secondes.

    Cette Virage à boîte automatique, construite à l'origine aux spécifications du Gulf Co-operation Council, est sortie d'usine peinte en Suffolk Red avec un intérieur Magnolia passepoilé de rouge. Le vendeur acheta la voiture à Aston Workshop en décembre 2019, voiture présentée à l'époque comme « une machine à remonter le temps, à très faible kilométrage...une des 37 produites par l'usine avec le volant à gauche avec seulement 27 000 km au compteur depuis l'origine ». Il était précisé que la voiture avait fait partie d'une collection privée outremer, qu'elle avait été peu conduite et garée au sec la plupart du temps. La documentation jointe comprend des copies de l'historique de la voiture, d'un ancien certificat V5C britannique, la facture de 2019 et un contrôle technique MoT du Royaume-Uni périmé. On notera que ce dernier indique un kilométrage de 1 801 km seulement, sans doute par erreur. Cette voiture exposée en statique nécessitera une révision préalablement à sa remise en circulation.

    On notera également que si le véhicule demeure en France, le taux de TVA sur importation réduit à 5, 5 pour cent sera appliqué sur le prix d'adjudication. Notez également qu'en cas d'acquisition par une société de la Communauté européenne, le montant de la TVA sera calculé sur la base du taux applicable dans le pays concerné. Les droits à l'importation dans d'autres pays européens peuvent varier et des frais administratifs seront facturés en vue de préparer les opérations de dédouanement. Pour toute question concernant le dédouanement, nous vous prions de consulter le Département automobile de Bonhams ou nos transporteurs agréés.

    "Launched at the International Motor Show, Birmingham, in October 1988, the sensational new Virage restated its Aston Martin V8 forerunner's muscular looks in the modern idiom, contriving to be slightly narrower yet providing increased interior space. The car was still no lightweight, but with 330bhp on tap courtesy of the trusty V8 engine's new 32-valve top end, was good enough for a top speed approaching 160mph (257km/h) and a 0-60mph (0-96km/h) time of under seven seconds.

    This automatic transmission Virage was originally built to Gulf Co-operation Council specification and left the factory finished in Suffolk Red with red-piped Magnolia trim. The current vendor purchased the car from Aston Workshop in December 2019, at which time it was described as '(a) time-warp, low mileage example... one of only 37 produced as original factory LHD and having covered only 27,000 km from new'. It was also stated that the Aston had formed part of an overseas private collection, been used sparingly and dry stored for much of its life. Accompanying documentation consists of copies of the Car Record Card, old UK V5C Registration Certificate, the 2019 purchase invoice and a recently expired UK MoT certificate. It should be noted that the latter records the mileage total as 1,801, which may be an error. This lot has been on static display and may require recommissioning prior to road use.

    Please note that if this vehicle remains within France the reduced rate of Import VAT at 5.5% will be charged on the hammer price. Please note that if you purchase as an EU Company, the VAT amount will be calculated based on your registered country's rate. Import rates to other EU Countries may vary and an administration fee will be charged to prepare the necessary customs clearances. If you have any questions regarding customs clearance, please contact the Bonhams Motorcar Department or our recommended shippers.
