Cape Town - While the sculpted moulding and stylish designs are enough to bring any self-respecting petrolhead to their knees, true devotees know it’s all about the sound with supercars.

But which supercar throttle gets your engine going?

No longer do you have to strain for clarity on YouTube videos to help you make a decision.

Confused.com has created a first-of-its-kind animation allowing you to battle it out between three of the front-runners: the Audi R8 Plus (V10), Ferrari 458 (V8) and Aston Martin Rapide (V12).

Aston Martin vs Audi vs Ferrari – the specs


The Supercar Sound Battle allows you to virtually start the ignition and rev up through the gears of each vehicle with the touch of a button. 

Fire the engine of the Ferrari V8 into life, swap seats to hear the ferocious Audi V10 turbo up the gears, and hop over to the Aston V12 mid rev to get the closest engine-to-engine comparison available on the internet.

We have included images of the cars at the end of this article.
