original thread about the AMV8 RS
Aston Martin has added a new model to its lineup in the form of the limited edition V8 Vantage N400 Roadster. The new drop-top will be sold alongside its coupe sibling, revealed back in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and will be produced in a limited run of just 240 cars. Like the coupe, the N400 Roadster can also be optioned with a sports package containing uprated springs and dampers but for obvious reasons it misses out on the rear anti-roll bar.
N400 spec includes a number of technical improvements as well as enhancements to the standard model?s range of color and trim options. These include a power upgrade to the 4.3L V8 engine, lifting peak power to 400hp and peak torque to 420Nm. There?s also a revised side sill design, new bonnet and side strake meshes, clear rear lamp lenses and a bright finish grille.
Inside, both the car comes with heated seats finished in black leather, satnav and Bluetooth as standard.
The N400 label denotes not only the power output of the car but also Aston?s achievements at the N?rburgring where the V8 Vantage competed in a grueling 24 hour race.
