Bring­ing back a name from the 1990s, the 2011 Vi­rage slot­ted into the range be­tween the DB9 and the DBS – and even avid Aston fans won­dered if it wasn’t a vari­ant too far. The idea was to sell a more ag­gres­sive car than the DB9 (but one that wasn’t as ex­treme as the DBS). All the pan­els ex­cept the roof were sub­tly restyled, while the V12 gained an ex­tra 20bhp, though the over­all feel was still very much GT. Sales were slow, and when the thor­oughly re­vised DB9 was launched for 2013MY, the Vi­rage was qui­etly dropped.
