Here we have another EVO TV video that's a fine recipe for car-guy action: the 3,990-pound Aston Martin DBS Volante and its 510-horsepower 6.0-liter V12, the 3,661-pound Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster and its 571-horse 6.2-liter V8, one English track, Tiff Needell, and one million drops of rain. Mix, record, and voila.

Needell's mission was to see whether the English GT or German missile could lap the wet track more quickly. While the end result might not be surprising, how closely the two cars finished was. Watch Tiff go to work below.

      Whatever they pay Tiff and EVO's production crew to do these track battles...it's worth it!

      It seems to rain there about 80% of the time. When your cars come with umbrellas like Rolls Royce... Thanks for the information and success. http://www.kabbanet.ro http://sitedesignnet.ro

      And I'd still take an Aston Martin.

      Did anyone notice how much drier the conditions were when the SLS was on track vs. when the DBS did its lap? A bit surprised Tiff didn't say anything about that, as it handed the SLS an advantage.
