Aston Martin is not only showing the DBS for the first time in Europe at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week, but will also showcase two new special editions - the Aston Martin DB9 LM and the V8 Vantage N400. Both draw inspiration from the company's recent achievements at Le Mans and the N?rburgring 24-hour races.

The V8 Vantage N400 commemorates Aston's achievements at the N?rburgring where the company enjoyed success in the gruelling ADAC 24-hour race with the V8 Vantage N24 production race car. The company develops and tests all of its road cars extensively on the Nordschleife circuit, and the Vantage N400 recently broke the eight minute benchmark around the legendary 14-mile circuit.

The Vantage N400 includes a number of technical improvements, including a 400hp power upgrade to the 4.3 liter V8. The car also comes with a new Sports Pack comprising a unique lightweight graphite-finished aluminium wheel with diamond turning, uprated suspension and a new rear anti-roll bar. The N400 has a number of exterior changes, including revised side sills, Magnum Silver hood and side strake mesh, clear rear lenses and a bright finish grille.

Interior enhancements include perforated black leather seats, micro-spin alloy facia trim and a unique numbered sill plaque. The Vantage N400 will be available in three new colors; Bergwerk black, Lightning silver or Karussell orange.

The DB9 LM celebrates Aston Martin's GT1 class victory in the Le Mans 24-hour in June with the DBR9 - a race car derived from the DB9.

This special edition, available in Coupe form only with Touchtronic transmission, includes a unique Sarthe Silver exterior paint, mesh and rear crossbar finished in Magnum silver and red brake calipers. Inside, the DB9 LM is fitted with handcrafted black leather, perforated leather inserts, unique dash trim and a numbered sill plaque. The car is also equipped with the normally optional DB9 Sports Pack as standard, with colour-matched and diamond turned alloy wheels.
