Too Much Aston Martin?

A new Aston is all well and good, but do they make too much cars now??

With the Geneva motor show coming up next week, the manufactures are going about the business of debuting cars ahead of schedule. Aston Martin has done just this, dropping the details of an “all new” car, the Virage.

It’s slightly faster than a DB9, and coincidently (/sarcasm) slightly slower than a DBS. It’s also slightly more expensive than a DB9, and coincidently (/sarcasm) slightly less than a DBS. See where I’m going with this? (and if you want actual performance numbers, they’re on the internet. Search yourself you lazy bastard.)

Now, I’d never complain about filling the world with more beautiful V12 powered coupes. But think about it, now Aston builds FIVE cars! And I bet to the ordinary (read: people who don’t care too much about cars) people, they could barely tell them apart. Particularly the DB9, DBS, and now the Virage. The DBS is a DB9 with some carbon-fiber bits on the outside. And now the Virage, which is a DB9 with Jay Lenos chin. Like I said, it’s hard for me to complain too much about another beautiful car being born, but it is hard for me to see the point…
