Description

This car is in auction on THE MARKET by Bonhams website. The auction is LIVE NOW. The price shown is the lower estimate.

All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.

This 5.3-litre, 3-speed automatic Virage was supplied by Aston Martin London to Mr Simon Miller of Denham on 1 May 1990 with its first registration ‘G505VUU’. The factory records show that he placed his order in April 1988, ahead of the public debut of the car in October of that year - clearly he had some inside knowledge - it was the 24th production car out of the 427 built.

The second owner, property developer and car trader Mr Alan Mennel of Doncaster bought the car in 1992 and four years later it moved to Billingshurst, West Sussex into the keeping of Mr Simon Hester of Lamina Dielectrics where it carried the private registration ‘RO 1179’.

The fourth owner was Keith Dare, a farmer from Axminster in Devon, who bought the car in 1999 at 29,136 miles and re-registered it with its current plate. He kept the Virage for 12 years in a climate controlled garage housing his small collection - which also included two other Astons - and only taxed it for the road during the summertime. The car underwent extensive refurbishment during his ownership and even took part in a Royal parade - see History Highlights for more detail.

Sadly Mr Dare passed away and the car was sold at the Bonhams Aston Martin Works Service Sale in 2012 to the Noble House Aston Martin Heritage dealership in the Netherlands, just east of Amsterdam, where it was retained on display in their showroom.

In late 2015, an independent trader bought the Virage and returned it to the UK by way of Le Riche Automobile Restorers in Jersey. Once again it was sold through Bonhams at their London Olympia sale in December 2017 and, again, it passed into the trade.

The last owner, its sixth, is our vendor - who bought the car in August 2021 from Kingsley Re-Engineered - more widely known for selling modernised classic Range Rovers. He’s owned modern Astons before but fancied having an older one that he had admired in his younger days.

He’s had work done on the Virage here and there to improve it, and has driven it now and then but largely it has been a “looking at car” sitting in his garage. With domestic pressure to release the space and a feeling that such a car deserves to be driven more, he’s reluctantly parting with it.

For much more description and photos see THE MARKET by Bonhams website.
