Aston Martin V8 Vantage N400
The special edition Aston Martin V8 Vantage N400 commemorates Aston Martin’s achievements at the legendary Nürburgring where, for the past two years, the company has enjoyed considerable success in the annual Nürburgring 24 Rennen 24-hour race with the V8 Vantage N24 production race car.
The race-bred Vantage N400 includes a number of technical upgrades as well as enhancements to the car’s standard range of colour and trim specifications. These include a more potent version of Aston Martin’s 4.3 litre V8 engine, raising peak power to 400 bhp and peak torque to 420 Nm.
The car is equipped with new sports suspension consisting of up-rated springs and dampers, and rear anti-roll bar for the Coupe. The V8 Vantage N400 also features lightweight forged alloy wheels with a graphite and diamond turned finish. This combination delivers greater agility and more responsive handling for the enthusiastic driver.
The V8 Vantage N400 also features a number of exterior design changes, including a distinctive new sill design as well as rear lamp trims and mesh grilles finished in Magnum silver.
Interior enhancements include a unique micro-spin alloy facia while the black leather trim incorporates new perforated seat inserts. Selected coarse stitching colours complement the three new exterior paint colours of Bergwerk Black, Lightning Silver and Karussell Orange. Additionally, each V8 Vantage N400 features a unique numbered Limited Edition sill plaque.
