    Re: New DB9 too!

    Looks sick !

    Aston Martin is probably one of the few brands that can make orange deviated stitching looks good.

    Re: New DB9 too!

    What's with the flappy paddle gearbox on the N400 - did they use the DB9's true automatic, or is this a new sequential manual? And how do potential owners feel about that?

    Re: New DB9 too!

    Sequential manual, not new on the Vantage, it is called Sportshift...

    Re: New DB9 too!

    Not a fan of the Sportshift in the V8 or the DB9 for that matter, the V8 is definitely a car to have in manual, DB9 may warrant some sort of automatic mode since it is much more of a GT.

    Drove a DB9 in sportshift recently, didn't like it.

    Luckily the V8 N400 comes in both manual and sportshift.

    The DB9 special edition comes in only Sportshift.

    Re: New DB9 too!

    DB9 does not have sportshift, the have an automated gearbox...

    Vantage gearbox is nice, not as good as Ferrari, but I liked it.

    The Vantage N400 includes a number of technical improvements as well as enhancements to its standard range of color and trim specifications. These include a power upgrade to the 4.3L V8 engine, lifting peak power to 400hp and peak torque to 420Nm . It also comes with a sports pack consisting of lightweight graphite-finished aluminum wheels, up-rated springs and dampers and a new rear anti-roll bar. There also a revised side sill design, new bonnet and side strake meshes, clear rear lamp lenses and a bright finish grille. Inside, the car picks up satnav, Bluetooth and heated seats.



    Hmmm, maybe Aston Martin should get its ex-stylist Henrik Fisker to come back to work just for one day to clean up the ugly sills on this car.

    Re: Aston Vantage N400 @ Frankfurt

    Nice effort from AM, but the limitation of colours doesn't make it worth it (who wants black int for a roadster ).

    Looks like the suspension will not be a retrofit.

    No word on the extra HP retrofit but it looks like just an airbox with a valve and a new ECU programming. Wiring that valve might be a problem.

    3 more weeks for my roadster!

    Fisker's independant work makes me not want this

    When you put it like that, I have to agree.

    So who REALLY did the good-looking Aston Martins when Fisker was cashing his AM salary checks?
