This Aston Martin V8 Vantage could just be the best way to get into ownership of this respected British brand. The "baby" in the range, the V8 Vantage was a hit with the experts and the buying public. It remains to this day the most successful car to bear the AM wings. This 2011 Aston Martian V8 Vantage is from the limited N420 production run, commissioned to celebrate Aston Martin's successes in the Nürburgring 24-hour race. It features very subtle exterior and interior design enhancements that add value. This car is just one of 420 ever made and has covered just under 15,000 miles in nine years.
The exterior of this 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 features subtle nods to the Nürburgring race cars. These include a front splitter, rear diffuser, and vents turned out of carbon fiber. The 10-spoke wheels are also unique to this special edition. The interior features N420 motifs on the carbon-backed sports seats' headrests, while the brush plates on the door sills also carry the racing-inspired name. This car also features the Bang & Olufsen premium audio package.
There's little guesswork involved in the engine as the model name gives it away. With the V8 comes 4.7 liters of power and, despite being the baby of the range, this engine is enough to make 420hp. The V8 Vantage N420 doesn't have any direct performance upgrades over the standard coupe. However, it does feature a unique Stainless Steel exhaust system that incorporates an active bypass valve. Power is delivered via a six-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential.
