Virage Volante 6.3 Conversion

The conversion by Aston Martin Works Service to enlarge the engine to 6.3 litres also became available for the Volante during 1992. As well as the more powerful engine, wide body conversion with larger front aid dam, larger OZ split rim wheels and uprated brakes were also part of the package. Indeed the wide body Volante looks even better than it's 6.3 coupe brother.

The wide body look was a popular option seen on many of the later examples of the Virage Volante, although many retained the 5.3 engine. Cars with wide bodies but retaining the standard 5.3 engines are known as cosmetic 6.3′s or wide bodied Volantes. Some of the cars on these pages may well have only the standard engine – it’s hard to tell although the genuine 6.3 examples do carry a special badge on the lip of the boot. Genuine 6.3 conversions have the uprated braking package and uprated suspesion whereas the cosmetic cars generally retain standard running gear.

Three examples of the Virage Volante are believed to have been built with the 6.3 litre engine but have retained their standard bodies. Needless to say, these are somewhat harder to spot. Just to add to the confusion, some Volantes were converted to wide body specification after having been completely finished, yet later in the life of the Volante, many were built with wide bodies in production.
