The first three production Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 models will be delivered by Aston Martin Works to their owners this weekend. These cars were snatched by Works (heritage center) customers, which means they are owned by hard-core Aston Martinists!
Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 is a motorsport-themed version of the British sports car inspired by the racing version of the Vantage. Sporting the new ‘64’ registration plate, three N430 is available in Coupe or Roadster form and boasts a 430 horsepower version of the old 4.7 liter V8 engine.
Setting the N430 apart from normal models is a host of exclusive features including carbon fiber and Kevlar seats and ten-spoke forged alloy wheels, together resulting in a weight saving of about 17 kg. Performance-wise the car has a 0-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph. Available transmission include six-speed manual gearbox and a close-ratio seven-speed SportshiftII automated manual.
Paul Spires, Commercial Director at Aston Martin Works, explained: “Interest in the new N430 models has been very high since the cars were first announced at the Geneva Motor Show back in March. I’m really happy that the first deliveries we are able to make to customers coincides so well with the arrival of the new ‘64’ plate registration mark.”Aston Martin Works Delivers the First Vantage N430s,
