2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
|Exterior Color:||Storm Black|
|Interior Color:||Obsidian Black|
The N420 could be speced in a choice of optional distinctive Aston Martin Race Collection paint schemes available as an option although any colour could be specified. In addition, the N420 had the extended N400 sills, carbonfibre splitter, side strakes and diffuser plus 10-spoke diamond turned alloy wheels with gloss black finish, black mesh vents and Graphitic tailpipe finishers.
For the interior the N420 came with the Iridium interior package, with graphite instruments, thicker rimed leather or Alcantara sports steering wheel, special N420 sill plaques and lightweight carbon fibre seats with N420 embroidery and Race Track stitching as in the V12 Vantage. So far as I can find, all cars had the same all Obsidian Black leather with Silver stitching, Obsidian Black carpets and Tailors Grey Alcantara headlining. It many be possible that occasional N420 cars were made with a slightly amended interior trim.
Of course in the US, the car comes with standard sports seats as the lightweight seats were not certified. Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and Park Distance Control are also standard.
A further distinctive feature was the availability of a new range of optional Aston Martin Race Collection paint schemes. Pairing bold body colours with contrasting hues for the cant rails and radiator grille surround, they celebrated the marques racing heritage. All of the companys successful N24 Vantage racers were celebrated, with Rose yellow, Kermit green and Elwood blue all featuring in the collection along with traditional Aston Martin Racing green. The white and black car shown in the accompanying images wears the equally striking Asia Cup livery. Other options are Modena Black and GT2 Concept Blue. After seeing a car in Elwood Blue, I was hugely impressed by the quality of the two colour finish; the edges between the two colours are imperceptible to the touch.
Production of the V8 Vantage N420 began in July 2010, with deliveries soon afterwards with a UK price starting from 96,995. Aston Martin intended that no more than 420 of each body style was built; the actually number of coupes built was 252. The Race Collection paint finishes were actually quite a rare choice perhaps due to the not insubstantial additional cost. AMHT records now indicate some were only used on a single car.
