The best exhaust sounds
The era of naturally screaming engines is unfortunately coming to an end. Because of downsizing, anti-pollution standards always more repressive, restrictions in urban areas ... So let's take advantage of this TOP of the best car sounds, turn up the volume and open your ears!
The LFA is Lexus' first supercar. And what a supercar! An eccentric design, a carbon monocoque chassis and above all a naturally aspirated V10 engine designed in collaboration with Yamaha, which the sound the music is the most beautiful of the car production. Only 500 copies were sold (+50 with the Nürburgring Package), surely because of its relatively high price of 375,000€.
BMW S85 (M5 / M6 / Wiesmann)
Eager to show its involvement in F1 and to echo the requirements of the FIA which imposed an engine with a V10 architecture, BMW designed the S85 in 2005. Not only was this engine elected engine of the year in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 in different categories, but it is above all the sound coming from another world that will make this engine enter the pantheon of the most beautiful songs of the automobile production. This V10 equipped the M5 E60 / E61 and M6 E62 / E63, but also the Wiesmann MF-5.
The Ferrari tribute to the founding father of the brand with the prancing horse named after him, is a work of art. A design widely criticized, inspired directly from the F1, and this atmospheric V12 ... Mamma Mia!
Ferrari 250 GTO
The 250 GTO is by far the most mythical racing car of the prancing horse brand, if not of the history of motorsport. Considered as the Holy Grail of Ferrari, its value climbs to more than 40 million euros at auctions. In its heart we find a V12 atmospheric of only 3 liters of displacement, developing 300 horsepower and 294 Nm of torque, for a weight of 880 kg. I let you discover this melody in pictures.
Porsche Carrera GT
After having narrowly escaped bankruptcy, Porsche wanted to enter the 24 hours of Le Mans but the project was abandoned, Porsche not wanting to overshadow Audi. But a concept car was exposed in Paris in October 2000 and in front of the positive reactions, the brand undertook to develop a version for the road with a goal of 1 500 copies. Thus was born the one that is also known for its sad nickname "The Widow maker". But what a V10!
A truck steering, a ULTRA slow gearbox (fortunately there were some in manual gearbox with the grid), and an atmospheric V12 of a violence... Ladies and gentlemen stay at home the devil is out, and he is dressed in white!
When Porsche gives Audi a little help for their first RennSport variation, the result is this: a 5-cylinder Porsche, 964 wheels, mirrors and steering wheel... An explosive cocktail for the first station wagon of the history, which will give birth to the legendary RS4 and RS6. By the way, do you prefer the RS2, RS4 or RS6? 5 cylinders, naturally aspirated V8, V10 or V8 Bi-Turbo?
Honda CBX 1050
Is it a rabbit? Is it a Formula 1? No, it's a CBX 1050 ! You can imagine that if I put a bike in this top, it's because it has something special... I let you discover it quietly.
Maserati 4200 / Gransport
The Maserati 4200 is the first Maserati equipped with a Ferrari engine. This collaboration was not such a bad idea! Indeed, the melody of the 4.2 V8 of Ferrari origin is unbeatable. Maserati has always known how to get the best sound out of its engines, so with this one they had a lot of fun.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991)
Flat 6, RS and atmospheric. Are your ears ringing when you hear these words? It's normal, so are we! Don't make them wait any longer, plug in your best audio system and take 5 minutes to listen to the flagship of the Porsche range.
