Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430: Soaked in racing spirit

The fastest way to Geneva? For Aston Martin, it’s via the Nürburgring. The company’s new special edition model, the V8 Vantage N430 takes its inspiration from the GT model’s ever-strong racing pedigree…

Delivering 436HP at 7,300rpm, the N430 rubs shoulders with the revered V8 Vantage S. Just like its N-badged predecessors, the new model is a shade lighter than the standard car (20kg to be exact) equating to a slightly quicker 0-62mph sprint time of 4.6sec. For many customers, though, it’ll be the numerous intricate details that will influence the buying decision – the Plissè Alcantara seat and door inserts or the 10-spoke forged alloy wheels, for example. Deliveries of the N430 will commence in Britain this September, priced from £90,000.

Many classic and modern Aston Martins can be found in the Classic Driver Market.
