Thanks Hip! I'd like to find out some history on it, I think it might be pretty rare, even for a Virage. Stage 3 bottom, turbo interior but with low back buckets and this black/grey hull. The seats look to be factory low backs, I thought turbos all had the high ones? I know there wasn't much (if any) documentation on them, but would be neat to see if there's a previous owner out there.

How many stages were there to the Virage? Was each one faster? I've only seen one.

Four of I remember right. Ron Pratt (Alaskanstreamer) has the very last Virage ever produced. He bought it from Howard like 5 or 6 years ago I want to say. The hull and deck were still in the original molds. It's all put together and is beautiful!

That boat looks as current today as it did 30 years ago. Timeless.
