BRM V16, Honda VFR400, Lexus LFA, Cizeta-Moroder V16T, Ferrari FXX-K (Tipo F140C V12), Ferrari 412T2, Audi quattro S1 Gr. B, Ferrari Tipo F113 180°V12 with Kreissieg exhaust, Lamborghini V12 6.5l with the classic 1–7–4–10–2–8–6–12–3–9–5–11 firing order and valve-exhaust, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss, Mazda 787B or any 4-rotor Wankel, Porsche 911 RSR LeMans, Subaru EJ20/25, big cam Ford Flatheads, Lexus 5.0 V8 with a Novel exhaust, Ford Coyote V8, carbureted Jaguar 5.3 V12 for its soft silence, Aston Martin Vulcan V12, Honda RA004/005E Suzuka Special, Honda NRX1800 Valkyrie Rune, 1st gen NSX with Taitec GT009 exhaust, any Japanese 250cc inline 4, NOVI Supercharged V8...

I don't particularly like flat pane V8s, because they sound like two inline fours, don't like cracklin' & poppin' V8s (AMGs & Jags) because they remind me of an old man coughing up phlegm. Smooth thunderous burble? Yes. Smooth silent V12s? Yes. Screaming V12s? Oh deffo. Unorthodox fours? Anything but not inline. I4s sound good only above 10.000RPM. But on the other side, the utter silence of the first 1UZ-FE V8 was also fascinating.

Gotta say the V8 and the downshifting and the cracks and pops did it for me! Wow!

I love this video. I guess it was with this video that I learnt why a 3 liter engine didn't burn 3 liters of fuel per revolution :lol: (I was pretty clueless back then). But still, it almost looks like there's more fuel than air being injected there.

Edit: Oh, and the sound helps too :D .

I once heard a ‘92 Ferrari V12 F1 car going up the hill at Goodwood.

It’s one of the few engine sounds I always remember.

Next best thing would be the Mercedes SLS GT3 racing car, they were like an evil thunderstorm
