Aston Martin Owners Club
N430 BTK is our third V8 Vantage and whilst they have all been a privilege to own it is the most eye catching and fun to drive. It was delivered to its first owner, who selected an enhanced specification, in April 2015 and then acquired by us in June 2018. The dealer, with whom the original order was placed, had handled all the servicing (and sale) of the car so its short history was reassuringly well documented.
Owning an Aston Martin has been a joint project in our family, with the first arriving in 2014 when son Ben selected a Tungsten Silver V8 Vantage Coupe (5 previous owners and 50k miles) as his car of choice. On seeing the photographs I offered to split the costs and our investment model was set! After a year we liked what we had been driving and decided to upgrade our Aston Martin to something a little more special. We found a V8 Vantage N420 that ticked all the boxes and even entered it in the 2017 Spring Concours at St Athan. Neither of us had any idea what to expect, so many people wielding dusters, vacuum cleaners and toothbrushes - what novices we were!
So why the N430 you ask? Well, it was a stunning looking car with less than 10k miles on the clock, an exhaustive specification and an enhanced driving experience. It lives up to our expectation every day, whether it’s a trip over the Downs or a trip to Hampton Court for the International Concours. The registration plate was our choice and adds that personal touch.
