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.

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
