Vantage Trivia[edit]

The rear light design on the Vantage was taken from a Bova coach which was seen by some of the development engineers at Aston Martin. LewisR 20:00, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

US Availability[edit]

I've deleted the statement about Aston offering the Virage as a 1996 model. A review of the 1997 DB7 for The Mercury News says: "With this pair of two-door models, Aston Martin returns to the United States after not selling cars here for two years."[1] A review by a different author (posted on the same site, but for the Chicago Tribune) is even more specific: "...[W]e had forgotten Aston Martin existed. Probably because it didn't offer cars here in the 1994, '95 or '96 model years, when its V-8 couldn't meet federal emissions standards and it couldn't afford to add a passenger-side air bag to the handful of cars it sold here."[2] Those statements track with my personal observations of searching classified ads over the years for my own research: I've never seen a '94, '95, or '96 Virage offered for sale in the USA.
