    We were having this conversation at work the other day. I love the sound of a rumbling american v8. But i also love a raspy v6 and a burbley 5 cylinder. Also like a screaming revvy vtec engine. I just love the sound of a petrol engine can't choose between them.

    Can't beat the sound of an air cooled flat six with a stainless sports rear box. :drool:

    Used to love scaring pedestrians and setting of cara alarms in underground car parks with mine. :icon_thumright:

    The thing is, you can have a 2 engines of the same layout that sound completely different..one dull as dishwater, one incredible.

    I love old US Muscle Car V8s...and Ferarri's flat plane V8...but the Rover V8 leaves me cold.
    BMWs straight 6 is a fine sounding engine...
    As is Porsche's flat 6...
    I can't stand the awful racket that Subaru's flat 4 makes.

    I think my all time favourite is Porsche's V10 in the Carrera GT though...
