1990 Aston Martin Virage

Vendor supplied images

Highlights

  • Recent import to be offered with UK road registration
  • Appears highly original throughout
  • Reportedly drives smoothly

The Appeal

The Virage was Aston Martin’s flagship model, positioned above the all-new DB7 and boasting the enviable status of being entirely hand-built in Newport Pagnell. It was also one of the final appearances for Tadek Marek’s glorious quad-cam V8. So in many ways, the Virage marked the end of an era.
This left-hand drive 1990 example has recently arrived back on UK shores and is currently undergoing registration. While it’s yet to be driven on UK roads, the vendor has found that it appears to drive well, running smoothly and going through the gears correctly. The Virage appears very original and well-preserved throughout and the vendor comments that it appears free from notable imperfections.
For those seeking an old-school V8-engined Aston Martin GT, a Virage is well worth a look and this one would be a great option.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
