    I've come across a video today that got me thinking : 'That might be the best sounding car i've ever heard'



    Should be worth a Thread, feel free to post your favourite exhaust notes here, hope I am not the only one who could listen to this all day instead of music;)

    Nissan S20 makes heavenly noises! I'd say the best sounding engine of all time



    And some other notable contenders

    Any Alfa with a Busso V6. Preferable the 12V but the 24V doesn't sound bad either. (156 GTA...) A common RWD (the old ones...) car affordable (their getting expensive now) for the normal man. Great cars, fun to drive, especially with some minor tweaks.

    Can't ever pass on a chance to share the beautiful sound waves that are the 4.6. The roads in that video are the main reason that I wouldn't mind living in the midwest.
    I've also always liked the way GM's 5.3 sounds. Doesn't sound like much on here, but in person that engine absolutely screams.

    I've never heard a car sound like this thing. Very well could be my favorite sounding V8 ever. (Jump to 1:18)



    This my favorite sounding car of 2015 I think. (Jump 0:18)

    Porsche 911. The Flat 6 engine makes a godly sound. Whether or not you like the 911, you'll love the sound it makes. Also, you've got to hand it to Porsche for being so evolutionary with their design and rarely changing their philosophy of that model.

    Mainly the driveby at 0:54. Not sure if timestamps work with embedded vids.

    Pretty much any mid 60's - late 70's air cooled rear mounted fourbanger

    This for instance
    wonderful
    Then there are Volkswagens... Beetles
    I find these engines sounds the most amazing.

    Rear-mounted four-bangers are glorious!

    4 cylinder engines in general sound amazing. They're pretty underrated considering how much flak they get for "being ricey".

    I mean, listen to this:
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=InT71fxTK_k
    Honda's higher revving engines are just aural porn.

    I feel that Mazda's rotary engines also sound a lot like 4 cylinder engines, just a bit throatier. The FC3S and FD3S RX-7s are also great sounding examples.

    Ignore the second clip in that video, it's a ghastly V8 and not a rotary

    That with HKS exhausts and anti-lag and you got yourself the best sounding Skyline.


    Also, the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Terminator, it's even better with a Kenne Bell supercharger equipped.

    4 cylinders of any kind sound amazing,had a v4 bike overtake me on my rather quiet 125cc bike, it was heaven.

    Also I've allways been a fan of rotary engines.
    You know what? why not both:

    Bit of a bump, but this twin-turbo R8 V10 sounds amazing.
