  • Bone stock SVX sounds way batter than all these. Just FIworld it. Embarrassing, very, when my daily driver sounds like an orchestra in comparison, legit. Edit: Not my car, but sounds the same.

  • Man the GT350 R sounds wayyyyy better than the clip you had. That voodoo engine is definitely the best sounding American V8 out right now. The new GT500 motor sounds insane too when catless. But where was the McLaren 720s? That definitely should have been on this list

    Jared HallJared Hall3 päivää sitten
  • The sound byte for the the gt 350 was a bad representation. IMO hands down they are the best sounding v8 ever.

  • "don't forget to listen! And don't accept shit sound!". A man that accepts and speaks the truth in life(don't forget to listen!), and also a true spirit in the entertainment industry (don't accept shit sound!). The amount of times that sound is overlooked is far too much. Much love!

  • I’m sure I’m going to get the “what do you know?” responses- nevertheless, this guy may be able to dub sounds over film clips, but he doesn’t know anything about cars. “On the downshift”, “this car isn’t tuned properly”, Carroll Shelby personally gave this car to his sister in law (posthumously I guess), “Mercedes isn’t known for that (an AMG’s exhaust note)”... yeah dude. I don’t think so. Expert card revoked.

  • Also on jaguar and Lexus i agree that audio recording wasn't the best representation for the motor because it sounded kinda bad for jaguar instead of the excitement it usually gives and dull on the Lexus because it wasn't sent it sounded like a slow rev up like it was in a high gear at 15% throttle

    Thri11SeekerThri11Seeker5 päivää sitten
  • Why does the 458 kinda close to the fxxk especially with that shift
