Video: Fifth Gear Drives the 2012 Aston Martin Virage Volante

/ Comments

Watch as 'Fifth Gear' host Tiff Needell drives a new Aston Martin Virage Volante in beautiful France.

Being the host of a popular automotive program has countless perks. Besides from earning a solid salary, you get the chance to drive all of the best new cars hitting the market (not to mention many rare classics). And on top of all of this, there's the chance to drive in some of the most scenic locations. In this newly posted video featuring 'Fifth Gear' host Tiff Needell, we get to see the beautiful new Aston being driven in northern France while on his way to the historic Reims-Gueux circuit.

Powered by a hand-built 6.0-liter V12 with 490hp, it can reportedly go from 0 to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 183mph.

Although it has a striking resemblance to the DB9 and DBS, the car is actually positioned between the two in terms of both price and performance. So what could be better than driving a V12-powered convertible grand tourer through France? Not much.
