The Finest Automotive Soundtrack

Many car enthusiasts and regular civilians will note that a big reason for the lust towards a car is the sound it creates! Whether its the rumble of a 7.0L Push Rod V8 of the scream of a 6.5L Ferrari V12 everyone has a favored sound! Personally In my opinion and expriences the best sound is created by the smaller displacement V10's. The 5.0L and 5.2L V10's in the Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8's make pretty spectacular noises across a wide range of rev's on the tachometer. The 5.0L V10 in BMW's E60 M5 & E63 M6 also makes a spectacular growl VERY similar to the Gallado's seeing as how the displacements are nearly the same.

The king of all V10's though definately has to be Porsche's Carrera GT. I know, you're probably thinking "PORSCHE, V10? WHAT?!" For a short period of 2004 - 2006 Porsche crafted a beautiful supercar coined the Carrera GT. It was fitted with a 5.7L DOHC V10 that produces by far the best engine note of any car ever produced on earth. Not to mention the car looks absolutely beautiful and has removable hardtop!
