This year at the 84th Geneva International Motor Show, we can expect to see two new and exclusive special editions from Aston Martin added to their V8 Vantage and DB9 ranges, according to a press release on February 19th.
The V8 Vantage N430 (featured in the video above) will be dressed in dark paints and contrasting lighter-colored liveries, inspired by the CC100 Speedster concept and the marque’s most famous Le Mans victory in the DBR1. Coming standard as well is a carbon fiber fascia trim, and the car sits on new, ten-spoke forged wheels.
The famed V8 Vantage roar comes from a front mid-mounted, 4.7-liter dry-sumped V8 pushing 430 hp at 7300 rpm. The sportier and more track-focused of the two special editions, the N430 has an impressive top speed of 190 mph, while boasting a 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds.
Drivers will also be able to enjoy the carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara-wrapped interior. Additionally, Aston Martin options offer a Bang & Olufsen audio system to N430 customers.

The DB9 lineage will grow with the addition of the Carbon Black and Carbon White special editions (featured in the video above). Both grand tourers incorporate the powerful howling 6.0-liter V12 with a lively 510 hp and 457 ft-lbs of torque.
Said Aston Martin Design Director Marek Reichman in the same press release, “The classic DB9 Carbon Black and daring DB9 Carbon White special editions give this timeless GT a fresh and highly desirable new appearance.”
All of that sounds good to us, but sadly these special edition Astons will not be making it into the States.
