The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is a monster of a sports coupe. At the front, those color-matched fangs and open mouth look like Dracula ready to take a bite. And underneath the hood, the 6.0-liter V12 sounds like the Wolf Man growling whenever the driver gets on the throttle. In a recent video, XCAR got its hands on this wonderful behemoth and showed its brilliant brutality.

The smartest move that the producers made was letting the car speak for itself. Several times during the video, the host shuts up, and the only sound is the bellow from the exhaust of the Aston Martin. The cinematography is pretty darn nice, too. If you don't have time to watch the whole video, skip about 10 minutes into it when XCAR just lets the diabolical V12 thunder. It's definitely one of the highlights. Scroll down to watch – and listen – for yourself.

      XCar delivers as usual..Car looks a bit tacky for an Aston, but damn that sound...and damn.. I really have to pay those british backroads a visit sometime.

      Aston Martins are my favourite cars but they over-did it with this one. It looks overwrought and generally unappealing. Aston Martins could never compete in performance or value, the thing they had going for themselves was exquisite beauty, taste, and class. Unfortunately, this doesn't deliver.

      Normally I love the Vantage but this car has zero appeal to me. If I were to purchase an Aston, it would be BECAUSE it is so compliant and civilized around town. If I want a car to "hoon" (as the British love to say) along backroads and at a track, it surely wouldn't be this car either. I'd be more inclined to go for an SLSblack, 458, 12c, or any other of the myriad of cars that are more suited for track use.

      I own a 2009 V8 Vantage, but the V12 S looks really outdated to me. Aston needs to come up with something new for a change.

      Can't wait to see Harris wring it out.
