A few years ago, in order to celebrate its success at the famous Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance event, Aston Martin revealed the N400 V8 Vantage special edition.
Now, seeing as how the Vantage did receive a refresh in that time, a new special edition has been revealed: the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420.
As its name implies, the car is capable of 420 HP, squeezed from its 4.7-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine. This, coupled with a weight reduction of around 60 pounds (27 kg), means that the N420 is capable of sprinting to a top speed of 180 mph. The model can be ordered with either the standard six-speed manual or a Sportshift semi-automatic transmission.
Seeing as how it is based on the racing efforts of Aston Martin, you know that the new edition will have some serious credentials. It uses the Sports Pack’s upgraded suspension, as well as a new body kit, made almost completely from carbon fiber. Unique wheels, as well as a wide array of racing liveries can be ordered to decorate the N420 Vantage.
Production will begin immediately, while deliveries are going to start in August. Don’t expect it in the USA however, as the Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 will be catered to the UK and European markets.
