The N430 version of the V8 Vantage Roadster was announced alongside the coupe just a few weeks ahead of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show; the new model following on from the previous N400 and N420 editions. This new special edition is based on the standard V8 Vantage but with the addition of the 'S' spec 430 bhp engine, 'S' suspension and some unique styling features, together with either the regular six speed manual or the optional Prodrive developed Sportshift II transmission with paddle shift.

The N430 became available for sale from September 2014 in most markets worldwide although sadly the standard fit lightweight seats mean the North American market did not receive the car. Instead, North America (and Australia) got their very own special edition, the entry level V8 Vantage GT Roadster.

The regular V8 Vantage Roadster N430 was discontinued from the range during 2016.
