Aston Martin reveals race-bred road-legal V8 Vantage N430
According to telegraph.co.uk:
Aston Martin has plundered its recent racing experience to create a new special edition of its old-stager V8 Vantage with some unique weight-saving touches.
The N430, due to be unveiled at next month’s Geneva motor show, is named after Aston’s recent racing cars, most notably the N24 track special, and gives owners a feel for those factory-team cars with extras like the standard carbon-fibre and Kevlar seats.
Check out the more details about the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430:
- new graphite-finished alloys
- the same 430bhp V8 engine as the Vantage S but with a 10bhp raise from the standard Vantage
- racing color schemes
- black magnesium paddle shifters for Sportshift optioned cars
- carbon-fibre gearshift surround
- black dash controls
- N430 logosstitched into the seats
- leather or Alcantara steering wheel
- Piano black trim
- a 1000W Bang & Olufsen audio system
- Coupe or Roadster form, the V8 Vantage N430 boasts a power hike to 430 hp at 7,300 rpm
The first deliveries of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 are expected to begin in September 2014 and it is expected to undercut the S model by more than £6,000 to cost £89,995. Aston Martin will also be unveiling two new editions of the DB9 V12 GT car (Carbon White and Carbon Black) at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The new Aston Martin looks like a showstopper, what do you think?
