Aston Martin has confirmed that its DB11 grand tourer is now available to order with a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8.

Producing 503bhp and 675Nm of torque, the AMG-sourced power plant allows the DB11 V8 to complete the benchmark sprint from 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds – one tenth of a second slower than its V12-powered stablemate. Top speed is a considerable 187mph.
