Which Ferrari sounds best?

I think it is one of the most delicate matters when it comes to a sports car. We need to decide which Ferrari sounds best. Listen with your heart and let your videos do the talking. This is my proposal : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXWF3qHDCPU

Best: My vote either the 365 GTB/4 or the 365 GTC/4

Most unique: F50 accelerating hard and the F40 on over run.

I will never get into the "which is best" argument. I have heard some great sounding Ferraris in my time, they all sound fantastic to me. Though one that come foremost in my mind was an F50 with an aftermarket exhaust at the See Red event 3 years ago at Donington UK. Also i have heard a 250GTO at full song that i will always remember
I would say my own Decatted Capristo is definitely up there. It does sound epic in the flesh, but have a look at the vids and see what you think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qtd2yxvVR0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrAyCgOQhjM

It's difficult to say which is best - I'm with Chaz.

But some special sounds come to mind:

My 365GT4/BB at 6,000 - 7,700 rpm.
430 Scuderia at full cry.
512BBLM on track.
1960 TR.
1973 312T.

And so on and so forth! Wonderful engines always sound great, and if Ferrari can do anything, it is building a wonderful engine.

chaz, I have heard your car before m8, and it sounds magnificent. Is this a standard 355 exhaust, it sounds almost as good as yours:

This can be a tough decision to make. Unfortunately I cant pin point one particular model that sounds the best, as just one of the things that Ferrari know how to do, is creating an orchestra down their exhaust pipes with the result of their cars sounding fantastic. A few that do pop in mind would be: F355, Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia, F40, F50 and 288GTO. The list I'm sure can go on and on.

Certainly impressive but what is that highly irritating whine on the 'off-throttle'?

Nope, does not qualify as the best car sound in the world in my book, I'm sorry. To each his own, I guess.

I like the classic sound, and my favorite is that of the flat 12s -- both carbureted BBs and injected Testarossas.

For a V8, I really like the Quicksilver exhaust on a 308: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWXOKryv14A

For a modern car, so far chaz's is the best I have heard, in video or in person.

On the newest cars, the sound sounds a little "fabricated" to sound like an F1 car, whereas on the older cars it sounds more natural.

I think the latest versions of Ferrari, 458 and 488 are really great.

I went to Le Mans last week and I think the 458's and 488's were the best looking and best sounding cars on the track. They didn't win anything but there's a lot of BoP politics involved in that, it's complicated.
