The “N430” in the name of this Aston Martin V8 Vantage edition stands for an output of both coupe and roadster variations.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 design
This racing-inspired car looks elegant and sporty. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 is available in five breathtaking exterior paint schemes. Its body is 20 kg lighter than the standard V8 Vantage. This reduction has been achieved by using a construction made of aluminum, magnesium and steel. The exterior of the Aston Martin N430 shines with graphite finished forged alloy wheels, black front grille and black windows surrounds.
The N430 coupe is a two-seater with two-doors while the open-air version features a soft top.
Inside, there are sports seats made out of lightweight carbon fibre and Kevlar components. The cabin is decorated with carbon sill badges, piano black trim, as well as black pedals.
