The car was built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Aston Martin DBR1's success at the 1000km Nürburgring race. 240 N400 coupe and convertible units were produced in total.
As the name suggests, the 4.3L V8 has been tuned up to 400bhp. Three special paint colours were available; Bergwerk Black, Karussell Orange, and Lightning Silver.
A map of the Nürburgring is stitched onto the centre armrest.
