Aston Martin confirms V8 Vantage N400 debut




Aston Martin has confirmed plans to unveil a new version of its popular V8 vantage coupe at the frank furt motor show. Dubbed the V8 Vantage N400, the car is the same vehicle captured by spy photographers just over a week ago.

Although Aston Martin has only released a single sketch of the N400, the aforementioned spy photos fill in all the blanks. Watch for an official photo gallery later this month.
Technical improvements include a power upgrade to Aston Martin’s 4.3 litre , lifting peak power to 400 hp and peak torque to 310 lb-ft.
The car also comes equipped with a new Sports Pack which offers subtly different driving dynamics tailored to enthusiasts who seek even more responsive handling.
The Sports Pack comprises a unique lightweight graphite-finished aluminium wheel with diamond turning, up-rated springs and dampers and a new rear anti-roll bar.
The Vantage N400 also includes a number of exterior design changes, including a revised side sill design, Magnum Silver bonnet and side strake meshes, clear rear lamp lenses and a bright finish grille.
Interior enhancements include perforated black leather seats, micro-spin alloy facia trim and a unique numbered sill plaque.
The Vantage N400 will be available in three new exterior colors: Bergwerk Black, Lightning Silver or Karussell Orange, with either Sportshift automated manual or conventional manual transmission and in either Coupe or Roadster forms.
Additionally, the Vantage N400 comes equipped with a range of normally optional equipment, including Satellite Navigation, 700W Aston Martin Premium Audio System, Bluetooth telephone preparation, HID headlamps, cruise control and memory/heated seats.

I love that rear 3/4-view pic. Really shows the side sills and the great overall look of the car.

I love the V8 vantage, but only +20hp from 380? Doesn't the Prodrive at least up it +40 to 420?

Correct, but you can not order it directly from the factory the car has to be sent to prodrive for the tweeks.

I am not sure whether that is correct..I am sure that I read somewhere that one could order the prodrive package from the local aston dealer and prodrive would come fix it at the factory...I have emailed pro drive asking the same..Lets see what they have to say.

I am not sure, I've been hearing many things lately and nothing is official about sending your AMV8 to Prodrive or having it ready made.

I think that the E92 M3 will spank it at fraction of the cost but you can't beat the appearance of the AM V8 Vantage (and sound)

who cares if its about the spanking, the C63 will spank the E92 M3 and will give it a run for its money.

Now dont come and tell me about track this and track that, its a sedan and the e92 m3 is a coupe for now.

The Aston is all about the presence, quality and its a unique recipe of having an Interior of a Bentley with the sporty head turning looks of a Ferrari in one package.

I didn't tell you anything about tracking this and tack.

Your spending $100K+ for a car, you ought to know it's performance compared to other cars. They are coming out with e92 sedan shortly.
