Description

1990 Aston Martin Virage Coupé, the 24th of 427 Virage Coupés produced. One of only 427 Virage Coupés produced between 1988 and 1995, '50023' was first registered in 1990 as 'G505 VUU'. An automatic transmission model and the 24th production car built, it was registered to one S Miller before changing hands in 1992, passing to one Alan Phillip Mennell of Epworth, Doncaster. In 1996 the Aston changed hands again, this time passing to Mr S Hester of Lamina Dielectrics Limited, Billingshurst, West Sussex, at which time it was registered on private plates 'RO 1179'. Between 1996 and 1999 the car had various works carried out at ADD Speed Engineering of Horsham, West Sussex.

The previous owner acquired the car in January 1999 at 29,136 miles. Reregistered as 'G121 WFG', it subsequently was used in the summertime only and kept in a climate-controlled garage as part of a private collection, which included two other Astons. While in the previous ownership the car underwent considerable refurbishment, works undertaken including replacing the offside and nearside lower front wing sections. Genuine Aston Martin parts were used, as evidenced by invoices and documents on file. It was a labour of love by its enthusiastic owner (since deceased) that was rewarded when the Virage was driven in front of H M The Queen in April 2005 at The Royal Windsor St George's Day Festival of Aston Martin.
Chassis "50023" was then purchased by a Dutch gentleman at Aston Martin Works in May 2012 and exported, the mileage total at that time being recorded as circa 35,000. For the next three years the Virage was kept on static display at an Aston Martin agent in Holland, since when it has remained in storage, unused. Approximately £6,500 was spent on re-commissioning in November 2015 (supported by a schedule of work to the brakes, new battery, sensor check, new vacuum houses, etc). The bodywork in Buckingham Green has recently been re-lacquered, while the tan leather interior is original and in very good condition, as is the engine bay. Accompanying documentation consists of the last UK V5C document; the original service booklet (completed to November 2015); and a comprehensive history file containing bills and invoices dating back to the first two services by the factory followed by marque specialists in the UK and Europe.
It should be noted that battery disconnection has caused the odometer to show an incorrect reading in the 65,000 miles range, which will require a reset. MoT certificates and the stamped service booklet confirm the actual mileage total in 2015 as 35,000
