Under the skin, Aston has tuned the standard 4.7-litre V8 to develop 430bhp ­– matching the power output of the V8 Vantage S – with power fed to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or optional seven-speed Sportshift gearbox. A sports exhaust, uprated brakes, tuned suspension and a quick-ratio steering rack have also been fitted as part of the upgrades.

Exclusive detailing inside includes, carbon sill plaques, N430 seat logos, black magnesium paddle-shifts and a leather steering wheel with contrasting stitching. The seats have been crafted out of carbon fibre and Kevlar, helping shed 20kg of weight and are trimmed with an indented Alcantara pattern.
