Expected to show up at next month's Geneva Motor Show, the V8 Vantage N430 from Aston Martin features the same 430 horsepower 4.7 liter V8 as the Vantage S. Shown here is the "club sports graphics packs" derived from the GT editions of
the Vantage, which help further accentuate the racing feel of the vehicle.
Carbon-Kevlar seats and ten-spoke forged alloy wheels keep things light while allowing the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, reaching a top speed of 190 mph.

The V8 Vantage N430 will debut September 2014 in Europe for £89,995 GBP (approximately $150,000 USD).
