Ok that exhaust is beautifully insane. I got goose bumps from it. Even more intense than the Carrera GT I saw a year ago and I did not think that was possible. So if I start saving for it now...........

Sounds like a Carrera GT. NICE

Too bad it is not faster. I don't think it's getting the respect it deserves for the engineering marvel that it is because there are cheaper cars that perform better. :(

^^^^It's a 72º V10 that revs to 9K. It's smaller in displacement than the iSF, and actually produces a a bit less torque than the ISF. With that in mind, our V8 will never sound like the LFA.

^^^^Oh, HA HA. To me there is no sweeter sound than the idle of a rumbly V8.

Lou, What's the V angle configuration of the M3? That has an interesting sound too, from the inside at least. How bout the C63, which sounds more like the F?

^^^^I know of no V8 that is not of a 90º configuration. For a V8 engine, 90º is the perfect configuration angle to keep it in harmonic balance.

After a quick google search, the ISF, M3, C63, RS4, and CTS-V, all have 90 degree V8s...which seems to be pretty much standards except for a few oddballs out there.
