Ah, you told me Darth Vader, but I heard this from elsewhere. MY cousin, when the Noble came to Mumbai, before DC tried his tricks on it. I'll try and see if I can get a link to the sound byte from him...

Default what else

I think the best sounding car at throttle is the one n only

" '67 shelby gt500 "

Its a coarse sounding firing... which oozes power at every stroke


Man.. it sounds better than anything on the road

The Dodge Charger R/T. I had seen(and heard) one outside NCL in Pune. It was going in the opposite direction. But for the short while I heard it, it was pure heaven. The guttural growl of the old V8 is intoxicating.

I agree with the Premier Padmini - the exhaust note was pretty good for such a car!

Used to stand in the closed garage while my dad warmed up the Fiat - the sound was intoxicating, as were the petrol fumes...

Any rotary powered car. Even the old Cosmo Sport. Or the 787b, but that sounds a little throatier than normal. RX-7 definetly (sp?) the favourite, though.
