The new Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 is a special edition of Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage which will be shown for the first time at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show on March. The N-badged cars of Aston Martin are all developed using experience gained from Vantage GT race cars. In this case, the Vantage N430 is inspired by the Vantage GT4 race car.
Available in coupe and roadster form, the V8 Vantage N430 has all the same curves and dimensions of a standard V8 Vantage, but adds a slew of menacing dark-themed accents, graphite-painted corners and forged-alloy wheels. The Kevlar and carbon-fiber seats also contribute to creating a general image of a “bad car”.

The engine is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed SportshiftsII automated transmission with paddle shifter.
