2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Aston Martin Vantage N430&Q image

The Brits from Aston Martin didn’t come up with something entirely new, which is always kind of hard when you’re a rather exotic manufacturer. Still, we can feast our eyes with the N430 Vantage or the bespoke Q version.

The Geneva Motor Show was used for the public unveiling of the V8 Vantage N430 coupe/roadster version, which is optionally available with some sports graphics packs inspired by the CC100 Speedster concept. They don’t look bad, but aren’t necessarily what you need on such a stylish model.

The V8 engine is upgraded to reach a total of 436 hp (321 kW) at 7,300 rpm and thanks to the added power the N430 Vantage gets to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and tops out at 306 km/h.

Aston Martin’s Q customization branch has done a fine job and unveiled in Geneva not one, but two models – a V12 Vantage S with orange tints, Stratus White paint and Jet Black roof and a tastefully restrained Vanquish Volante with an exposed carbon fiber tonneau cover. The roadster also boasts a fine interior, wrapped in White Essence leather for the seats and a satin finish walnut trim.
