If the 600-horsepower V12 Aston Martin DB11 is too much, perhaps a V8 will be more your speed.

Aston Martin will now offer the DB11 with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

That's the same eight-cylinder engine found in a variety of Mercedes-AMG products.

The V8 DB11 will hit 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and will keep going until it reaches 187 mph.

Its suspension is tuned more for sporty driving than grand touring.

Dark headlight bezels also help separate the V8 car from its V12 siblings.

Both cars have the same level of standard equipment, though. It is a luxury car, after all.
