The new Sports Pack offers different driving dynamics tailored to the driver and includes a lightweight graphite-finished aluminium wheel with diamond turning, up-rated springs and dampers and a new rear anti-roll bar (for the Coupe).

The exterior design changes include a revised side sill design, Magnum Silver bonnet and side strake meshes, clear rear lamp lenses and a bright finish grille.

Among the interior enhancements are perforated black leather seats, micro-spin alloy facia trim and a unique numbered sill plaque.

The Vantage N400 will be available in three new exterior colours; Bergwerk Black, Lightning Silver or Karussell Orange, in either Coupe or Roadster forms.
