Alfa Romeo 8C v Audi R8 Spyder v Aston Vantage S v Porsche 911 GTS video

The Stelvio Pass is the setting for our sonorous supercar cabrio battle. Alfa Romeo 8C Spider v Audi R8 Spyder v Aston Martin Vantage S v Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

The Stelvio Pass is one of the greatest driving roads in Europe. So what better place to take four of the continent's best sounding cars? The V8s in the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, Audi R8 Spyder and Aston Martin Vantage S Roadster and the flat-six in the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet all sound fabulous, and with the roof of each drop-top stowed, the walls and valleys of Stelvio are a wonderful place to savour all of the noise.

Listen to them all and pick your favourite with the video below, and read the full story in evo issue 161, on sale Weds August 17. There's also a blog on maxing out the cars on the Autobahn on the way home.
