This rare car (above), the second factory development Virage Volante, DP2054/2, was on sale at the AM/Bonham’s auction in May 2004, although it failed to reach it’s reserve. Since the first prototype DP2054/1 was crash tested, this makes this car the oldest Virage Volante in existence. This particular car was used by the AM Engineering Department and became part of the development programme. Although initially constricted as a two seater, this car was comprehensively rebuilt at Works Service, and is now has the standard 2+2 accommodation. The blueprinted high-performance engine was especially built by Works Service and is claimed to offer 6.3 performance from 5.3 litres capacity. In addition, much of the running gear is similar to that of the 6.3. Like later Volantes, the car now has front wing vents, later walnut veneer instruments surround, air-bagged steering wheel and the larger 17 inch wheels.
I believe that the two seater DP2054/3 (below shown in 1992 press pictures) is still in existence retaining it’s red coachwork and black leather.
