If you love the sound of Aston Martin‘s growling V8 (who doesn’t?) then we have a treat for you. The British sports car company has just released extensive footage of the new model racing around the famous Ascari circuit in Spain.

An upgrade over the standard Vantage model, the S gets a slight bump in power to 430-hp, as well as a new 7-speed gearbox that has shorter gear ratios and 20 percent quicker shifts. Other changes include a revised front fascia with an even larger front air intake, new side sills, a modified rear bumper, some stunning 19-inch wheels, a modified suspension package and new ratios for the power steering help improve driving dynamics.

But enough about the details, hit the jump to watch over 8 minutes of rorty V8 awesomeness. Don’t forget to turn up your speakers.
