the 355 sounds really good

Ive never heard a V12 Ferrari at high RPMs

I love the sound of a 166mm. Only 2 liters and when it screams it sounds incredible.....

2002 BMW R1150GS
2006 Triumph Speed Triple
2004 KTM 525 Sled
1975 Honda CB400F
1963 Ferrari 250 SWB - Not quite yet....

We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

I like this topic, a different twist and a tuff question.

I'm going to have to go with in this order:

F50
F355
F40

The best I ever heard is a 512 BB LM and Daytona Competitzione...

But these are racing cars... Street car: F40

I like the sound of the 355 the best, then the F40, then probably a 512

The 365GTC/4 is reputed to have the best note of any Ferrari street car.
I hope to have a chance someday to find this out for myself.

I have drive a couple of 365 GTC/4s. IMHO, I both the Daytona and Boxers (365 GT4 BB & 512BB) have better sound tracks.

Just drove a 430 Spyder, and as much as I believe that a V-12 is far and away the best engine. The 430 is the best sounding Ferrari to date, at least in stock configuration.
