While, as an owner, I love the sound of my Ford GT with it's Ford Racing Rear Exit Headers, I must confess that my first experiences in the 1950s listening to the various cars at the road races set two cars above all - and still do today.

For high pitch beauty, I still thrill to the Ferrari Colombo engine in the 250 Testa Rossa (circa 1957-1961).

And, for low frequency guttural levels (a la the Cobra 427), I would choose the Maserati 450S, powered by Alberto Bellentani and Guido Taddeucci's 4-cam 4.5 liter V8.
