Aston Martin N420 – The VideoWed, 10 Nov 2010 00:00:00 -0800
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage N420 - video below
We have a predisposition to lusting after anything from Aston Martin (apart, perhaps, from monstrous Lagonda SUVs), even when their performance is just average. They just look so good – even standing still – that they make your heart miss a beat every time you catch site of one on the drive. Or most anywhere else, for that matter.
It gets even better when the Aston Martin in question offers something extra. Such is the case with the Aston Martin N420 – the 4.7 V8 Vantage version of the N400 – even if Aston decided that the output from the 4.7 litre V8 in the regular Vantage was enough to be going on with (musn’t trample on the V12 Vantage, after all).
And although the N420 loses about a sack-full of spuds in weight thanks to extra use of carbon fibre, you wouldn’t really call the N420 a stripped-down Superleggerra. More a cosmetic tweaking with a bit of extra resistance played in to the suspension thanks to the normally optional sports pack coming in as standard kit.
But we’ve covered the reveal of the Aston Martin N420 Coupe in July and we gave the N420 another outing when Aston Martin sent us pictures of the N420 Roadster in September. Despite those two reveals (well, one dragged out to two) we’ve had nothing much in the way of video. Until now.
So enjoy the Aston Martin N420 Video below. We have.
