Online configurator tools are a good way for those who can't afford a high-end car to at least dream about it in a tangible way, without entering a showroom and picking up a brochure. Curious about which color you want for your dream Aston Martin Virage? Well, you can see for yourself, right on your computer screen.
Aston Martin has put configurators for the Virage and the Cygnet city car on its Web site. You'll have 24 exterior and 20 interior colors to choose from on the Cygnet, and the Virage offers similar numbers plus four different colors for the brake calipers.
The 490-horsepower Virage checks in with a base price of $209,995, while the Cygnet has an estimated base price of $35,000. Quite the income difference there.
There is no sight of an online configurator for the rumored electric Cygnet on Aston's site, however. Rumors abound that the electric Cygnet will arrive on the scene in 2013.
