Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

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.

Whereas the V12 DB11 sports four hood vents, the V8 DB11 only has two.

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.
