Don’t even bother to watch the .gif above. It’s all smoke and slide and flash, but it doesn’t do this Aston Martin V8 Vantage rally car any justice. The noise it makes is profane. It would be banned as obscenity in most lesser nations. It is, in short, insane and sublime.

We don’t know why the hell you don’t listen to us, but the R-GT Rally series is the best thing that has ever happened to humanity and you still won’t watch it like you should.


This Vantage GT4, seen above helmed by French rally driver François Delecour, sounds like an absolute banshee. It’s almost confusing, with that big a noise coming out of a car that’s not known for being particularly shouty in a world of loud family sedans.


But, ugh, I just want to sit and watch these all day.
