I test drove an Acura, and it sounded exactly like the car in that video.

Gotta love that sound....but with all the videos out there of cars blowing up, it makes me nervous to watch. Glad to see she is running fine now and good for many more years to come....

That was simply glorious!!!! Seems a pity to be wearing ear protection against such a sound but I guess thats just one of those unfortunate drawbacks in the trade.

Current: 348 GT Competizione, 456 GT (Manual)

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.
