The N430 gains more horsepower and track tuning, inspired by the Vantage GTE endurance racer.
Aston Martin has unveiled its track-inspired V8 Vantage N430 at the Geneva Motor Show.
The V8 Vantage N430 continues the N-series tradition, designed to highlight the company's endurance-racing heritage. Output from its 4.7-liter engine has been bumped up to 430 horsepower at 7,300 rpm, bringing a claimed 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds and topping out at 190 mph.
The company has shaved 44 pounds from the regular V8 vantage, thanks to carbon fiber and Kevlar racing seats, new alloy wheels and a thin-paint finish. Suspension and steering have also been tuned for improved handling on the track, while buyers can choose from a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Exterior differentiation is established by brightly-colored cant rails and "lipstick" around the front grill on several configurations. On the inside, the dark- and light-themed interiors utilize contrast stitching and material upgrades such as carbon-fiber door sills and gearshift surrounds.
The N430 will be available in coupe or convertible roadster editions when it arrives in Europe this September and later in the US.
