The dark red Shooting Brake, the second prototype, DP2099/2, was photographed at Coys Festival, Silverstone in 1993. Notice on this car, that the side vent is the same as that of the previous V8 model. It is also the only Virage Shooting Brake finished in Dubonnet Rosso, all others are believed to have been painted British Racing Green. The numbers of cars built (or converted) are very small; an estimate in 2002 was only five or maybe six, all initially right hand drive. The first two prototypes, DP2099/1 & DP2099/2 were the only cars built in production, the others were all conversions based on completed Virage coupes.
Virage 3 door Shooting Brake
The 1992 Geneva Salon was the debut of the Virage Shooting Brake (DP2099) available as a conversion of a customers car or complete for a total of £165,000, thus at that time, making it the most expensive Aston Martin ever. The many modifications enable this car to accommodate four people very comfortably. Although a small number of shooting brakes have been previously been produced by specialist coachbuilders (DB5, DB6 and DBS), this was the first to be built in house by factory Works Service
