The road-going Aston Martin Vantage comes from the factory with an AMG-sourced twin-turbo V-8 engine. The DTM racing version is a bit different.

Thanks to DTM regulations, the race car uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four instead of a V-8. It makes an astonishing 610 horsepower—105 more than the road-going car, with half as many cylinders. Unsurprisingly, it makes a totally different noise. Here, listen for yourself to see which one you like more. And make sure to turn the volume up.
