Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430, DB9 Carbon Black & Carbon White

Aston Martin will unveil two new DB9 special editions – the Carbon Black and Carbon White – plus a new track-focused V8 Vantage N430 model at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

The V8 Vantage N430 sees its 4.7-litre V8 engine’s power output increased to 436PS at 7,300rpm.

As a result its 0-60mph time drops to 4.6 seconds, with a top speed of 190mph.

The engine drives the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox, with a seven-speed automated manual unit an option.

The company says they’ve recalibrated the suspension and steering for a more enthusiastic driving experience.

The N430 is differentiated by a multitude of dark exterior details, including graphite alloy wheels, black front grille, headlight bezels, grille meshes, window surrounds, clear tail-lights with black surrounds, and even textured tail-pipe finishers.

If that’s too restrained for you, a range of optional club sports graphics packs are available.

The interior features carbon-fibre trim for the gearshift surround, fascia and door sill kick-plates, plus black anodised rotary controls, tread plates and pedals, and special Alcantara with contrast stitching for the steering wheel, seats and door inserts.

The V8 Vantage N430 is priced from £89,995 with first deliveries expected in September.

Elsewhere in the Aston range, the company has created two new special editions for the DB9.

The Carbon Black and Carbon White both include carbon-fibre side strakes, black window surrounds, special kick plates and bespoke logos, among other tweaks.

Prices are described as “on application.”
