    Best sounding car?

    What is the best sounding car that you have ever heard? I would have to say the Panoz LMP race car. The Panoz is the loudest thing on earth!

    Either a 2003 Corvette Lingenfelter Stage 4, or a 1967 Corvette 427. Both the same day, last year at Corvettes at Carlisle. The 67 could be heard across the fairgrounds, which are probably a half to 3/4 mile wide...

    Matra 670.

    3litres of V12 screaming and SCREAMING !! In Le Mans and F1

    Closest anyone can get now is when it's taken out for demonstrations.
    But they don't red-line these - shame :_

    Still can be enjoyed at http://www.bad-boy.pwp.blueyonder.co... Matra V12.wav

    Metro 6R4, although my Libra sounds nice at high revs.

    Useless fact of the day: An Alfa Romeo engine when at high revs sounds much unlike a Ferrari when it screams.

    360 Challenge Stradale. Just a great sounding engine inside that machine.

    Not to long ago I heard a Vanquish starting and driving away from very close. It was such an AWESOME sound....

    'nuff said, that is the best way to sum it up.

    i like that matra engine a lot, it sounds so pure.
    i also like the weird engines like the AC Propulsion Tzero which has an electric engine and it sound neat when it accelerates hard, and i also love the sound of the RX-7s.
    here is a link to Egg Nogs "silent assassin" thread: links on thread

    Hate to be rude, but it's an electric "motor"

    No such thing as an electric engine. An engine is defined as a device for changing fuel energy into mechanical energy.

    Thanks for the link.

    my favourite would have to be the BOSS 5.4L Ford V8 used in the XR8 and GT......

    www.ford.com.au/falcon/mainFlash/

    theres a link off that where you can here the sound of the XR8 engine revving through the revrange, but it isnt always there as it goes through a cycle

    Awesome sounding engine, thanks for posting the link. I don't know much about Matra's, but you're talk of them sparks interest in learning more of them. Do you know of any published literature about Matra's?

    The only real decent cars you ever hear in New Zealand are just Falcon XR8's and Commodore SS's, unless you live in Auckland or Wellington. Personally, I love the sound of the old Windsor v8 they used to have in the Falcons, although I've heard an old Pontiac Trans Am start up and that is an incredible sound. Also a person I know has a very old (1970's era) Ford Capri with a V8. It happens to pick someone up from my school and you can hear waay before you can see it which is quite funny..

    ive heard AU windsors (my dad owns one) XR6T's and BAXR8's and can safely say the BA 8 sound the best. the BOSS engine retains the bellowing at idle the windsor has but doesnt get raspy higher in the rev range like the buick V6 in the commodore does.....

    There are a few books, but most are in French
    http://www.editions-palmier.fr/Libra...tra-course.htm

    There is a lot of on-line info too.
    Here are a couple of good sites to start with....
    http://www.matrasport.dk/ - find my car in here, Lennart and I collaborated in getting the first Matra picture site on-line.
    http://www.carjoy.nl - Dutch dealer, click on history.
    And if you want to spend hours browing, this is the most complete Matra links list ....
