    I know there was a bike thread started here and I KNOW there has to be some car heads here so here we go. Post videos of what in your opinion are some of the best sounding cars or bikes. I'll start off with two personal favorites of mine :)

    YouTube - Ferrari 355 Capristo fly by sound.

    YouTube - Porsche 911 (997) GT3 RS X-Ost exhaust sound

    Listen to the downshifts on the GT3 RS....I've heard downshifts similar in real life at the track here, brutal and heavenly at the same time! They're much louder than the video!

    I have to say an air cooled porsche on the boost sounds way better...
    As far as bikes, the Ducati desmosedici with termignoni pipes pretty well takes the cake....

    :D

    I don't like the sound of boosted Porsches, I prefer to hear the wail of the naturally aspirated flat six :) throw on some straight pipes and I'm set :D

    Just heard the Desmosedici with Termignoni pipes on Youtube...I can only imagine how it sounds and feels in real life when you're riding one :eek:

    I just think that while it isn't a sexy sound, air cooled boosted flat sixes sound so raw and ragged that nothing tops the cacaphony. It is controlled chaos going on in there, and it sounds incredible ;)

    I've never liked the sound of the ducatis, meh, personally i think they are over-rated bikes. I love the sound of my R6 with my graves exhaust system. Laugh all you want but shifting with the bike screaming at 16,000 RPM with a straight-piped titanium race exhaust that has flames shooting out the carbon fiber can says holy sh!t.

    Even though it is my avatar it's not one of my favorites :p I prefer to hear old RB straight sixes spooling up.

    My brother has a CBR1000RR with Yoshi pipes that sounds pretty sweet.

    Hehe, it's one of my favs. I'm a big fan of Japanese cars. I've seen a few of these bad boys on the road here in NY and the engine roars.. frickin LOVE it :D

    Unfortunately, I could never justify spending $75,000 on a car.

    I like inline four motors in a bike, BUT to me there is nothing like the sound of a v-twin or v-four in amotorcycle to get my blood pumping. Have you ever heard an old v-max on the boil? NASTY!!!

    I love Infiniti's signature tune of the exhaust. Whenever I hear that tune, I know for sure it is an Infiniti. No other car can immediately make me think of a certain brand or model just by listening to what's coming out of its exhaust. It's like a trademark.

    It isn't hard to argue. I would love to see exactly what cars were included in the research. I wish he would have included the link of the study, so it would be better understood. What is the sampling too? 10, 100, 1000, 10000? Too many unknowns to make this really credible. Even the blogger said that he takes it with a "grain of salt".

    I've heard these cars driving around before and they do sound nice but I don't think it can be definitively said that it is the best sounding car. It's subjective just like music :)

    Oh no, it's not about not having the money. That part is easily attained. It's just that $75K could be spent on other more important things.

    i had a 83 toyota tercel tr5 hatchback 5 speed, the muffler fell off, it sounded downright bad ass.

    i agree about the inifiniti's for the stock sound of a decent consumer car....the FX's sound great

    the v series cadillacs are might nice too

    I was on the road riding my bike (colnago, not motorcycle) and just crested a hill, was tired and had my head down. I hear a "sport bike" (Ducati?) coming in the other direction, in angry mood. As it got closer, I lifted my head...turned out to be a Ferrari F430.

    I like this Carrera Gt @ 2:10 and 2:40, 4:50:

    YouTube - Porsche Carrera GT with AWE Tuning Straight Pipes In Action


    Got to love a V10 at full chat:

    YouTube - Audi S8 5.2 V10 FSi quattro with Milltek Sport exhaust


    And there's something about the Audi/VW V6s:

    YouTube - S4 with APR Exhaust

    YouTube - Audi S4 APR Turboback- no muffler. Part throttle.

    YouTube - 92 volkswagen corrado vr6 supersprint exhaust


    ...but there is a special place in my heart for my 1.9L Corrado G60 w/Borla exhaust, which is nothing compared to the Dahlback beast:

    I've heard a few Carrera GT's pass me on the highway and lets just say I needed a new pair of pants :p

    I've watched videos of the Dahlback before....absolute INSANITY. I'd love to try and drive one of those and see how long I can stay on the track lol.

    That Dahlback Golf is a monster on steriods, having its period.

    LOL, I remember watching that...but I beg to differ. Alonso's Renault wasn't the "fastest" that year, but had the best TC system (was also an Adrian Newey design no?)...so technically, it was "easier" to tame than some of the other cars on the grid.

    :p

    +1 on bringing back the V10...although racing would be more of a battle of $$$ again. That, or the 1.5L F1 Turbos.

    Awww H3LL...was looking for a vid of the BMW 1.5L, and found this article:

    http://www.worldcarfans.com/110042625865/f1-teams-close-to-agreeing-new-2013-engine-formula---4

    Crazy to think THAT had traction control. The ones today don't. I don't think that was Newey design, he was with McLaren.

    I'm pumped that F1 is coming back to the states, I'm planning on getting tickets for 2012.

    Meh not big on twin-turbo four cylinders but I'll hold my judgement. As long as they don't make it a spec series I'm fine. F1 is the pinnacle of automotive technology and should remain to be so. IndyCar is switching to twin-turbo fours too I think.
