Hey TBites

Since i've never heard these cars in person and that the videos never give out the actual sound, i don't think i'm in a position to answer this question.

But of all the cars i've heard, i'd say........

Indian car - Cielo
International - Porsche 996 (the one we saw on worli seaface last time)

None of the above.
The 4 best sounding cars I've heard are the TVR Cerbera, Jaguar XK180, Aston Martin DB7 Vantage GT and Porsche Carrera GT.
The best sounding cars I've heard in real life are the Ferrari 355 with Tubis, Bentley Continental GT, Porsche 911 (996) and 1969 Ford Mustang in that order.
Indian cars (unmodded) - Conti, City VTec, Premier Padmini.
Among the ones you have mentioned above, I'll go for the Diablo.

for me it has to be the Carrera GT. what a noise, like that of a F1 car. mindblowing. if it has to be a car i've heard in person, its the 996 Carrera 4S. Amongst Indian cars, nothing beats the Premier Padmini, one of the
best sounding cars still around

Its just gotta be a Ferrari 355 with Tubis for me.

I would pick that car for the sound even if it looked like a rickshaw!~
You just gotta hear it at 8000+ RPM every hair on your body will stand on end!!!

Nope. I have had it. I just cannot decide. Its a equal match between the M3 CSL, the Diablo and the Countach.

The M3 CSL is just the best sounding BMW ever ever! I have heard an M5 in Boston, but an M3 CSL is from a totally different planet.

And yes, the second best thing about Lamborghinis (outrageously good looks aside) is the exhaust sound. Far superior to any Ferrari (Non-tubis..dont pounce)
