A beast with a gentlemen's appearance - Last year I was lucky to acquire this N420 limited edition (99/420).
The lighting silver exterior together with the Aurora blue interior are a marvelous combination - close your eyes and imagine James Bond racing through the old medieval town of Ghent (Belgium).
For the interior the N420 came with the Iridium interior package, with graphite instruments, thicker rimed leather sports steering wheel, special N420 sill plaques and lightweight carbon fibre seats with N420 embroidery and ‘Race Track’ stitching.
The 4.7-litre, 420bhp, V8 engine combined with a weight reduction by 27kg over the standard V8 Vantage is a pleasure to race or drive.
The carbonfibre details on the outside too and a distinctive design of alloy wheel makes it stand out.
This is still a V8 Vantage, just one that's better tied to the road. So it steers with pleasing accuracy and feel, and wants to be revved with surprising vigour for a big V8. Do so and it gets along nicely, with the sports exhaust making a really belting noise when the engine's wound to the upper echelons of the rev-range.
A little boys dream came through...
