Aston Martin V12 Vantage is Aromatherapy for Your Ears!

We recently posted a video of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and we said we would rather prefer that to its bigger brother, the V12 Vantage. We still stand by that, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love the bigger engined car as well - we do, a lot!
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?
