Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Starships of the Galaxy

The Virago

The Virago was the personal Starship of Prince Xizor, Black Sun's Underlord. He personally commissioned MandalMotors to design a unique Starfighter for his personal use. Xizor's demands were steep; he required a ship that could match the TIE Interceptor in speed and that was both versatile and combat-capable. The spacecraft that was produced as a result was the first StarViper-Class Assault Fighter, and the criminal prince christened his ship The Virago. To ensure that his ship remained unique and unrivaled, Xizor purchased all rights to the new design. 

The Viago served Xizor well for many years, paying for itself many times over. It was eventually lost over Coruscant when Xizor's skyhook was destroyed by the Imperial Super Star Destroyer Executor. MandalMotors wasted little time in regaining the rights to the StarViper design following Xizor's death. The newest iteration of the StarViper-Class Assault Fighter is not as fast or as agile as Xizor's original prototype, but MandalMotors felt that some concessions were unavoidable in order to bring the price into line with the market as a whole.
