Aston Martin just unveiled their offerings for the Geneva Motor Show. They are taking special editions of V8 Vantage N430 and the DB9 in two variations of Carbon Black and Carbon White to Geneva. Both cars come with considerable upgrades from previous versions.
The new V8 Vantage N430 is described as “the dynamic exhilaration of Vantage is the perfect complement to the eye-catching looks of the N430,” by the automaker. The car is available in Coupe or Roadster form. With the dry-sumped 4.7 liter V8 engine, its power output now stands at 430 hp at 7,300 rpm, bringing it up to the level of Vantage S. By using light weigh materials such as carbon fiber, Kevlar seats and forged alloy wheels the N430 has shed around 44 lbs or 20 kg. With these improvements it can go from 0-60 in just 4.6 seconds and achieves a top speed of 190 mph.
New exteriors feature graphite painted alloy wheels, black front grille, headlamp bezels and exterior meshes. To give it an air of notoriety the side window surrounds, textured tailpipe finishers and clear rear lamps all come clad in black. Interiors features carbon sill plaques, N430 seat logos, a modern driver instrument panel, leather clad steering wheel and exclusive seat trim patterns. The new V8 Vantage N430 has a scheduled September release and a starting price tag of £89,995 (approx. $150,000.)
The DB9’s in black and white come with a 6.0-litre V12 engine that output 183 hp and 620 Nm of torque. Both cars also feature lightweight carbon fiber exteriors that include side strakes and black windows. Interiors also come with a strong black styling theme with color accent options.
