Who wins in a battle of sound only? In the blue corner we have the good ol V8 (proper V8’s, not tossy McLaren or Ferrari high pitched V8’s that sounds like four cylinder cars) VS the V12 in the red corner. This is an old age question. This is a hard one but for sound only a high revving V8 is eargasmic. I will never get tired of hearing a healthy, rough idling and clean revving V8. Yes, my bias view to muscle cars is also a contributing factor but I have some evidence below to prove my point.
Ford VS Ferrari
Shelby Daytona: skip to 1:15
Ferrari 250 GTO:
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
Skip to 1:06
Other superior V8 sounding cars include the E90/E92 M3, all Koenisegg’s, SLS Black Series, XFR (that was before Jaaaggggggs started sounding like they had holes in their exhausts), Z06 Corvette, etc.
Before you V12 fans stone me to death in your minds, to prove me wrong, I’d suggest Pagani/Mercedes, Lamborghini, Ferrari Aston Martin V12’s, etc.
Here are some memes to enjoy.
