Textbased installation of VMs in VirtualBox

at work we are using VirtualBox and I like to install fresh linux VMs with 
the latest Ubuntu LTS.

With libvirt I can use the virt-manage command and when the installation is 
preseeded the whole installation is fully automated. If also a serial 
console is enabled  I can watch the installation process and log into the VM 
when installation is finished. All can be done without sighted help.

With VirtualBox I can create a VM but is there also the possebility to 
install the VM in textbased mode. How do you install linux VMs with 
VirtualBox without sighted help? If this is possible also preseeding should 
be no problem...

Any hint how to work with VirtualBox is very apriciat ed.

Ciao and thanks,
