    ETA: Plenty more of those where they came from – what would sir like?

    my old mini, when the friend who bought it off me visits i can hear it coming from a couple of roads away and it instantly makes me grin wildly and a hundred good memories flood right back 😀

    I started a DB5 once, the sound was amazing, Astons have a lovely growl. I quite like an original beetle too.

    Even driving round the pits the hairs on the back of your neck stand up;

    i still think a tuned bike with a naughty can sounds better than a car….altho i did have a v8 mustang years ago in canada that sounded very cool

    Panoz GTR-1. Ear splitting V8 that you could identify from a campsite 2 miles from the track.
    Ferrari 333sp. Such a silky smooth V12 tone

    Will try and get some clips when not on my phone.

    I saw/heard the 4 rotor Mazda engine in it’s last race at Le Mans. It was certainly an interesting noise, too much like a jumped up Dyson vacuum for me though

    Actually as a visual spectacle this one runs the BRM close;

    not many people get a round of applause for letting their car idle for a bit 🙂

    That 787b is something else, but I’m also partial to the Gumpert Apollo

    Nobby – top man for suggesting the Mazda.

    How about a BDA Escort full chat on a forest stage – hearing it in the distance going up and down through the box as it gets closer, before bursting into view round the corner in a hail of stones and engine noise – makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck every time!

    The Old American Block V8 as fitted to Range Rovers, Rover SD1, Aston Martins etc – just that lazy rich burble.

    Favorite incarnation of it would be the AC Cobra..

    Story goes that Shelby (the man) when selling his first Cobras stuck a $100 bill to the inside of the windscreen and told customers sitting in the passengers seat, if they could reach it before the car hit 60mph they could keep it…

    subaru 2.5 (with a ‘normal’ exhaust) driven lazily just sounds lovely to my ears.

    almost (but not quite) a bit like a spitfire – effortless and burblely.

    nothing loud or clattery for me please.

    Best sounding would be an Aston, even if I would rather have a Ferrari given a choice.

    I wonder how many people know what an AJP8 is ?

    Heard a few on a tunnel run last weekend, also great on the over run.

    Has to be Mercedes AMG SLK, the one they use as the pace car for GP. It sounds like the space ship from the modern Star Wars films 🙂
