Top 5: Most Awesome Engine Sounds

As dad said in his phone call last night, Stage One of my life has now officially ended. So, what highlights are there for mentioning in these 17 years? Lets start~




Mmm, cars. Again. You're probably going "Ugh. Cars again?" Press "Control" and "W" and wait until the not cars-sy lists come out then~ (:



If a man needs to have the right voice, a car has to make the right sounds too. Here's my top 5 cars that sound nothing like your daddy's Honda Accord:




5. Subaru Impreza WRX

It's flat-4 (dont worry about what that means) engine makes the deepest, most manly, bass-y rumble I've ever come across. It's not a really big engine, only at 2.5 liters, but my oh my for such a small engine it really sounds like it's much bigger.






















4. Maserati Granturismo S

 An Italian V8 that roars like a lion. Mmmm, very sexy...




                                                     








3. Lamborghini Murcielago LP670 SV

Oh how beautiful the howl of it's V12... Simply beautiful.








                                                     
      








      
2. Ferrari F50


If the LP670 has a beautiful sounding engine, then the F50's V12 is glorious. Absolutely magnificent. It even uses an engine that was developed from a 1992 Formula 1 car.







                                                   







1. Porsche Carrera GT


A V10 that was meant to go racing, but put in a road car instead. This engine, does what the other 4 above doesn't; it tingles my spine, it screams (not in a bad way), it makes me want to listen to it over and over again. Marvelous.

 ~Special mentions~

Although the list is road-cars only, exceptions must be given to the Lamborghini Diablo GTR and 2000-2005 Formula 1 race cars, simply because they're special. Maybe because they're full-bred racers, so the noise  they make have that extra OOMPH . But still-
