If you've felt a big lion's roar real close-up, he gives you an oddly similar visceral feeling.

Very astute observation.
Not a lot of people have heard a male lions full on roar. I can be heard for miles.
Most have only heard a mild version from the poor caged animals in a zoo.
Like some wives :wink:

Top Fuel cars are different from anything I've ever experienced. They have very little treble when running, it's all mid and bass. Shakes every molecule in your body, you get a standing wave in your eyeballs when they go past and you feel the air move inside your lungs. Mobile earthquakes.

Top Fuel = LOUD, Earth-shattering? Yes.
Best sounding? Not in my book.

Interesting that a similar machine was featured in 'On Any Sunday' nearly 1/2 a century ago..
In fact, that classic movie really did show British bikes at their peak, inc' winning the No 1 plate.

Here's another 'dinosaur' showing it can still - 'kick out the jams'..

There certainly is something 'musical' in the sound of engines with even-firing multiples of 3 cylinders,
here's a racing Jag, snarling out its booming bass-baritone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9I7GWllPFY
