Aston Martin V12 Vantage is Aromatherapy for Your Ears! [Video]
text size: A- A+
While it may just be two old-generation Ford Mondeo V6 engines bolted to one another (that’s how it started off at least), it makes a great noise, a unique noise which can easily be recognized as being a typically-Aston Martin kind of noise. It’s a lot rougher than a Ferrari V12, but not in a bad way, more like a hairy-chested and manly kind of way - again, as with the Audi TT-RS Plus, the engine is a separate experience in and of itself, and in the Aston it is a hand-built masterpiece.
Which engine do you prefer? The almost muscle car-like V8, or this smoother and more refined V12?
