Aston Martin used the Geneva Motor Show to unleash two new special edition models onto a waiting planet, the V8 Vantage N430 and the DB9 Carbon Editions (Black and White). The V8 Vantage N430 calls to mind Aston's racing heritage and successes with a high-performance car that tops out at 190 MPH and can hit 60 mph in about four and one half seconds. The N430 includes the V8 with 430 hp and adds carbon fibre and Kevlar® seats, ten-spoke forged alloy wheels in a new graphite painted finish, dark-themed exterior details (alloy wheels, black front grille, headlamp bezels, exterior meshes, side window surrounds, textured tailpipe finishers and clear rear lamps with black surrounds), and new interior features and materials such as machined carbon sill plaques, N430 seat logos, black magnesium paddle-shifts or carbon fibre gearshift surround; contemporary driver instrument panel; black anodised rotaries; leather steering wheel with contrasting on-centre stitch feature (or Alcantara with matching stitch); seat and door inserts in technical Plissè Alcantara – indented leather on Roadster models – and unique seat trim patterns.Options include a close-ratio seven-speed Sportshift™ II automated manual transmission with short final-drive ratio, a state-of-the-art 1000W Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system with ICEpower® technology, and more. The V8 Vantage N430 (Coupe and Roadster) starts at just over $148,000 at today's exchange rates with Euro deliveries starting in September of this year.
The DB9 Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions start with the 510-hp V12 DB9 and add special dark accents on the interior (a strong black styling theme with a choice of accent colors in line with the caliper shade showcases carbon fiber details and new black hardware) with dark exterior carbon-fiber accents (carbon fibre side strakes and black window surrounds) with Carbon White models featuring Stratus White paint. Prices and availability info can be gleaned from Aston Martin dealers, so yeah, it won't be
