Combining the DNA of a racetrack superstar with a street-legal ride, the new V8 Vantage N430 from Aston Martin is poised to thrill. The signature yellow and green Aston race theme (applied for the first time to a road-going Vantage) lets you know right off the bat that this vehicle is something special.
If you need your clues to be a little less subtle, the 4.7-liter V8 engine delivers an upgraded 430 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds. The track-tuned upgrades abound, with lightweight carbon Kevlar seats, new lightweight forged alloy wheels, recalibrated suspension system, quick-ratio steering rack, and Jenny Craig’s favorite upgrade: It weighs 44 pounds less than the original V8 Vantage. Inside you’ll find a 1000W Bang & Olufsen audio system, black magnesium paddle-shifts or carbon fiber gearshift surround, a leather or Alcantara steering wheel, and much more. Look for the V8 Vantage N430 to first hit the U.K. this fall for about 90,000 euros.
