New Car: 2014 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430

With more power than the base V8 Vantage and a retuned suspension and steering, the GT4-inspired V8 Vantage N430 brings track-focused dynamics to Aston’s street car. The V8 Vantage N430 makes the same power (430 hp, 361 lb-ft of torque) as the Vantage S and 10 hp and 14 lb-ft more than the standard V8 Vantage. Available as a coupe or convertible, the V8 Vantage N430 sports unique styling inside and out.

“[The V8 Vantage] N430 is all about bringing track-honed excitement to the road in an accessible, emotionally engaging, and authentically ‘analogue’ way,” said Ian Minards, Aston Martin director of product development, in a release.  
 
Enhanced by a sports exhaust system, the 4.7-liter V-8 sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic transmission. Aston Martin claims the N430 will accelerate to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and top out at 190 mph. Developed on various race tracks, including the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife, Aston Martin says the N430 sports a “carefully calibrated sports suspension tune and quick-ratio steering rack” as well as “a competition-derived braking system.”
 
The N430’s exterior features blacked out details including the front grille, vent mesh, headlight bezels, side window trim, and exhaust tips as well as graphite-finish forged alloy wheels and clear taillight lens. An available club sports graphics package features various liveries inspired by the DBR1 racer and CC10 Speedster concept.  
 
Inside, the N430 features carbon fiber and Kevlar seats, N430 logos, and contrasting stitching, machined carbon sill plaques, black magnesium paddles or carbon fiber gearshift trim, black anodized knobs, choice of leather steering wheel with contrasting stitching or Alcantara with matching stitching. Coupes feature seat and door inserts in technical PlissèAlcantara, while roadster get indented leather. Other standard pieces include carbon fiber dash trim, Piano Black interior trim, black anodized tread plates, and black pedals. The alloy wheels and seats are said to shed 44 pounds from the N430. An optional 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system with unique speaker grilles and lens details is also available.
