While the Aston Martin LMP1 prototype racer may not look anything like the V12 Vantage, they're powered by variants of the same engine: a 6.0-liter V-12 that sounds, as this video attests, magnificent.

It also drives like magic, as well, as we learned in the hills of the Monterey Peninsula earlier this year. With 510 horsepower, the V12 Vantage may only be a middle weight in the modern super-coupe category, but it delivers an aural punch an order of magnitude greater.

There's not much else to the video. It's just some fantastic car porn for a lazy Thursday as we all wind down for the holiday weekend. Enjoy.
