This particular example was owned by AML from new but driven by HRH The Prince of Wales until about 2006. It was then retained by the factory until 2012 when it was sold at the Bonham’s AM Works auction for the ‘princely’ sum of £119,100 including premium. It is finished in the Princes favoured colour combination of solid British Racing Green with Mushroom hide interior without a contrasting piping colour. It also has manual transmission, really quite rare for a Virage Volante.
Virage Volante 6.3 Narrow body
Three examples of the Virage Volante are believed to have been built with the 6.3 litre engine but have retained their standard or 'narrow' bodies. Needless to say, these are somewhat hard to spot save for the 6.3 air dam or perhaps split rim alloys.
