Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430
Coming to the Geneva Motor Show next month is a brand new, special edition V8 Vantage from Aston Martin. Dubbed the V8 Vantage N430, the car makes use of the same 430 horsepower 4.7 liter V8 as the Vantage S and couples it with the likes of carbon-Kevlar seats and 10-spoke forged alloy wheels – weight-saving measures that allow the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds before reaching a top speed of 190 mph. Additional features include everything from a competition-derived aero package and re-tuned suspension to new steering ratios, modified exhaust, and either a six-speed manual or seven-speed sequential gearbox. Finally, “club sports graphics packs” derived from the GT editions of the Vantage further accentuate the racing feel of the vehicle. Look for the V8 Vantage N430 to make its public debut in Switzerland this March before arriving this September in Europe for £89,995 GBP (approximately $150,000 USD).
