The mystery of the spied Aston Martin 'DB9' with the longer, LED-enhanced headlights has been put to rest: while built on the same architecture, it's not a DB9, or even a DBS... it's a Virage.

Aston says it will reveal more when the car is unveiled at Geneva, but it has confirmed that the Virage and the convertible Virage Volante will slot into the line-up between the DB9 and the DBS.

Power is provided by Aston's tried-and-true 6.0 litre V12, producing 365kW and 570Nm of torque and mated to a six-speed Touchtronic II automatic transmission.

Suspension is managed by a double wishbone arrangement at each corner, and a newly developed Adaptive Damping System is standard, along with a programmed Sports mode.

The wheels are 20-inch alloys sitting over carbon ceramic disc brakes with six-piston calipers up front; four-piston at the rear.

The styling is classic Aston, although the company says it features a new aluminium front grille inspired by the limited-edition One-77, with five horizontal vanes creating an aerofoil profile.

Inside, the Virage gets a new satellite navigation system developed with Garmin, running through a 6.5 inch high-resolution touch screen. Standard equipment includes all the mod-cons: cruise control, Bluetooth handsfree and a 700W Aston Martin Premium Audio System with Dolby Pro Logic II and iPod integration.



Speaking with TMR today, Aston Martin's Operations Manager for Australia, Marcel Fabris confirmed that the first customer deliveries of the Virage and Virage Volante will begin in July this year.
