Astonís special V8 Vantage

These are the first official pictures of the firmís new special edition flagship for the V8 Vantage range, the N420.

Taking its name from the output of its tuned 420bhp 4.7-litre V8 engine, the new 180mph V8 is available to order now as a Roadster or Coupe, with either the six-speed manual or optional Sportshift automated manual transmission.

The N420 is 27kg lighter than the standard car, and features wider sills, a carbon fibre splitter and diffuser, and gloss black 10-spoke alloys. Black mesh vents and new tailpipe finishers complete the look.

On the inside, the Vantage gets graphite-coloured instruments, lightweight carbon fibre seats and a leather or Alcantara steering wheel.

Also included is the optional Sports Pack which includes revised springs, dampers and anti-roll bars for even more responsive and dynamic handling, and Astonís sports exhaust. A choice of striking paint finishes, including the bright green, which earned one of Astonís entries into the NŁrburgring 24-hour race the nickname Kermit, are available.
Production of the V8 Vantage N420 begins this month, with deliveries commencing in August and prices starting from £96,995. Auto Express has been behind the wheel of the first car, and you can read our exclusive driving impressions this Thursday.
