The new V8 Vantage N430 was designed to bring the track-honed excitement to the road in an accessible way. The sports car boasts a power hike to 430 hp at 7,300 rpm, the same as that of the spirited V8 Vantage S.

Pure, unadulterated fun is what lies at the heart of the new V8 Vantage N430, available in Coupe or Roadster form.

Each of the five eye-catching exterior paint colors has been designed to incorporate an optional Club Sport pack – adding further color and personality. The five exterior treatments are named Heritage, Race, Stealth, Trophy and Speedway.

Ian Minards, Director of Product Development at Aston Martin, said of the new car: "N430 is all about bringing track-honed excitement to the road in an accessible, emotionally engaging, and authentically 'analogue' way. The dynamic exhilaration of Vantage is the perfect complement to the eye-catching looks of the N430."

Ally that inherent dynamic capability to lightweight and sporting-biased features as standard such as carbon fiber and Kevlar seats and ten-spoke forged alloy wheels in a new graphite painted finish - together yielding a weight saving of 44 lb (20 kg) - and it's clear that the GT4-inspired N430 has been created to deliver exceptional performance with a club sport ethos.

No surprise, then, that the new V8 Vantage N430 is capable of 190 mph, with a 0-60 mph time that drops to 4.6 seconds.

That power feeds the rear wheels through a sporty six-speed manual gearbox; with the option of a close-ratio seven-speed Sportshift II automated manual transmission with short final-drive ratio for those demanding the most driver-focused yet involving set-up.

N430's front mid-mounted, 4.7-liter, all-alloy, quad overhead cam, dry-sumped V8 engine is complemented by a rousing sports exhaust, aerodynamics honed through numerous wins in GT racing and a competition-derived braking system.

The compact proportions and inherent balance of the Vantage design are supported by a carefully calibrated sports suspension tune and quick-ratio steering rack that rewards the true enthusiast driver on road, and on track.

Countless hours testing at circuits around the globe, including the Nurburgring's Nordschleife which is home to a dedicated Aston Martin Test center, have delivered a machine truly worthy to join Aston Martin's family of 'N' cars.
