This spring at one of Europe's largest car shows, Aston Martin will debut two special edition cars; the V8 Vantage N430 and the Carbon DB9

Aston Martin has recently released pictures of its two latest special edition cars that will be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March. 

First up is the V8 Vantage N430, a faster version of the regular V8 Vantage – with the N it its name standing for 'Nürburgring', the legendary German racing circuit. The car is equipped with 430-horsepower and weight-saving measures like carbon-kevlar seats and forged alloy-wheel spokes, which help it power up to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds – with a top speed of 190 mph. The car also features new steering ratios, retuned suspension and a more aggressive exhaust, giving it a bolder race car feel.

Ian Minards, the brand's head of product development, said: "N430 is all about bringing track-honed excitement to the road in an accessible, emotionally engaging, and authentically 'analogue' way," adding, "The dynamic exhilaration of the Vantage is the perfect complement to the eye-catching looks of the N430."

Aston Martin's other release will be the Carbon Black and Carbon White editions of its DB9. Fitted with carbon-fibre trim throughout the car, the engine is still the standard model's 510-horsepower 6-litre V12 engine.
