Best sounding V10 was the LFA. Best sounding street engine was the McLaren F1's BMW V12. Best sounding race engine was the 787B (and loudest). At least that's how I read it. Possibly the best sounding engine ever according to EVO.

Omg the 787B's 4 rotor sounds absolutely amazing.

Yeah, the 787B sounds like a throwdown between Seraphins and Demons.













At a concert.















During intermission at a Formula 1 demonstration. Pure Awesome.

THere are no losers on that list and it is is ASTOUNDING Lexus is in the same breathe as them. Kudos again to Lexus and to the Yamaha team!

I wish the positive LFA threads would get more love instead of the controversial or negative threads getting tons of posts
