Aston Martin V8 Vantage N400 launch at Frankfurt 2007By Matt • Sep 7th, 2007 • Category: Coupes
Aston Martin will introduce two new variants at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2007. The first one will be a variant of the popular V8 Vantage, the Aston Martin V8 vantage N400. The Vantage N400 is Aston Martin’s homepage to the marque’s feats at the Nurburgring. The N in N400 is quite simply, for Nurburgring. This is the race track where Aston Martin tests their cars under development.
A photo gallery will be uploaded to the blog the moment official pictures of the N400 are available from Aston Martin.
The most important changes to the V8 Vantage are a power boost to 400 bhp and torque to 420 Nm. The 400 in N400 refers to the horsepower of the V8 Vantage.
The Sports Pack for the V8 Vantage N400 comprises a lightweight graphite-finished aluminium wheel with diamond turning, up-rated springs dampers, and a new rear anti-roll bar for the Coupe. Driving dynamics are expected to be better with the Sports pack.
On the outside, you will see a few changes, such as a revised side sill design, Magnum Silver bonnet and side strake meshes, clear rear lamp lenses and a bright finish grille.
Spy photos of the Aston Martin Vantage N400 have been around for a while. But this close to the Frankfurt Motor Show, we don’t see any point in uploading them to the site. But you can find them easily on the Web.
Colour options for the N400 are: Bergwerk Black, Lightning Silver or Karussell Orange, with either Sportshift automated manual or conventional manual transmission and in either Coupe or Roadster versions.
Extras and accessories include Satellite Navigation, Aston Martin Premium Audio System, Bluetooth HID headlamps, cruise control and memory/heated seats.
