The AMG-Engined Aston Martin V8 Vantage Growls Like A Pissed Off Demon

Aston Martin's next generation Vantage has been spotted testing once again, and its AMG-sourced powerplant certainly delivers in the sound department

Remind me later

While the new V12 in the DB11 is all the work of Aston Martin, the company is set to replace its Jaguar-derived 4.7-litre N/A V8 with a twin-turbo 4.0-litre unit from Mercedes-AMG.

While it doesn’t quite sound as spectacular as the outgoing engine in this test footage, it still makes a brilliantly angry noise.

What do you think?
