Description

This is the limited edition N430 of the V8 Vantage, here in the Roadster variant. Announced before the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, this model follows on from the already highly desirable N400 and N420 editions. This model is mechanically based on the V8 Vantage, but with the 430 horsepower “S” engine, even sportier suspension and some unique design features. In this case, the model equips the Sportshift II transmission developed by Prodrive.

The interior of the N430 features carbon fiber and Kevlar seats as a way to further reduce the weight of the set, saving 20 kilos compared to the V8 Vantage. Precise handling has always been a strength of the Vantage, and that remains a constant on the N430. Balance is really superb detail, with incredible stability and neutrality, lots of grip and traction. The braking system also conveys extra confidence on sportier rides.

It's really a model worth having in the collection. Especially because it is a special edition, but also because this unit is in excellent condition.
