Following on from my previous post you can go for the cheaper method of making your V8 Vantage loud. By removing Fuse 22 you stop the butterfly valve in the exhaust from closing below 4,000rpm, therefore making the car louder on lower revs. You can hear the difference by watching the video above.
I think the Aston Martin V8 Vantage sounds pretty great when stock, but this Quicksilver exhaust upgrade sounds pretty fantastic too.
Some of the most interesting upcoming cars have been caught testing at the Nurburgring including the Velar SVR (featuring JLR’s phenomenal V8), the new AM Vanquish/DBS, 8-series, Supra and Cullinan.
The Land Rover Defender is an icon in the car world, and they can be very effective at the job they were built to do. Sometimes though, people wish they were a bit faster and do something like the owner of this car has and put a big V8 in the place of the 2.2 diesel it came with. Not only does it make an awesome noise but it also looks pretty quick!
In this video you get to hear the new Vantage start up, rev and even crackle. Obviously its not like listening to the car in the flesh but it does give you a good idea of just how good it will sound. I had a chance to have a sit in the car when it was touring the AM main dealers and I think it looks pretty incredible.
I came across this video a couple of weeks ago and thought it was pretty incredible, as its not often that you get the chance to see many millions of pounds worth of Aston Martins messing around in a huge warehouse. The ‘warehouse’ in question is the facility that has become AM’s Newport Pagnell factory, before it was fitted out. Give this one a watch (and a listen!) because it is pretty epic.
Its another Harry’s Garage video, and another car that I absolutely love. This Mercedes SL600 is a rare car now, and something of a monster. I would absolutely love to own one of these, though with the way their prices are going that probably won’t happen.
