Supercar sounds

New turbo'd engines sound sick. not as good as old V8's but the flutter and exhaust sounds much better then the F1's.

The Barra would wipe the floor if they could use it.

V8 Fireworks should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Nice thread!

Here is the Ford twin-cam six turbo in a Supercar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4CFyv0tVR8

While the Chevy Ecotec (or whatever it's called) sounds OK, the vast majority of V6 turbo racing engines sound terrible, like for example the Ford GT Ecoboost: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh4VQjz-WhA Or the Honda NSX: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQDIfjm-PZI Or the Nissan GTR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ErapiECM1A

I'm sorry but the turbos are just no match for V8 music, especially when we had the lovely Volvo and Mercedes in the field: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaGvY-IJeyA

Even the straight-six turbo in a Bimmer racer is not very musical, more of a dreary drone than anything else: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjgPXDHwLCg Whereas the V8 in a Bimmer? It's just magical! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3zWcTAmXb8
