Check out the new special edition V8 Vantage with a weight reduction, now available for purchase.
A new special edition Aston Martin is now available for order from the UK automaker. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 has a trimmed weight, and features a new sports exhaust system.
The weight reduction comes from the use of carbon fiber at the diffuser, side strakes, splitter, and seats. In total, 27 kilograms was shaved off the stock 1,630-kg V8 Vantage Coupe.
Other features include wide side sills, black mesh vents, dark tailpipes, and 10-spoke glossy black alloy wheels. The interior is fitted with an Iridium package, with contrast-stiched upholstery, a choice between an Alcantara or leather wheel, and graphite instrumentation.
The name of the car is taken from the 420-horsepower (313 kW / 426 PS) 4.7-liter engine that kicks out up to 470 Nm. Official acceleration details were not revealed, but look for the 0-60 mph time to be around 4.5 seconds.
Workers will begin assembly of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 later this month. First deliveries of the £96,995 car should start in August.
