    Everything about the F40 is the best ever. I have posted it before, but I met a guy and had lunch with him about 3 years ago, at a seafood restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. I saw his red F40 in the parking lot when I drove up, so I went looking for the owner and he invited me to sit down and talk about cars as we enjoyed our lunch. Nice old guy, some kind of investment manager, probably very rich. The car was absolutely beautiful. I think he just drove it around Malibu like a daily driver.

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    I thought Ferraris were supposed to sound good!

    There was a gentleman campaigning a F40 during the Open Track Challenge in 2002.
    Very nice guy. Spent have the week fixing the car... still regret not asking him for a ride in it at speed.

    It sounds angry, I like cars that are shock and awe, makes men cry, and women cling tight to their man when you first hear them. So far only a big pushrod V8 does that.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    The F40 LM has, and always will be the pinnacle of a supercar for me. I was lucky enough to see one driving along the road, and I actually touched the thing and stuck my head into the cockpit out of sheer excitement while the owner was driving it. I hadn't realized what I'd done but he was incredibly cool about it.

    1 of 19. What are the odds.
    Do you understand?

    Being a 12 cylinder Maranello fan I prefer this to the F40 turbo V8 sound

    Love those things, but for ridiculous prancing pony sound, the F50GT has always been king for me:

    The sound quality is bad, but the car sounds so bombastic and lays out backfires like shotgun blasts. It is hard not to like it. It just screams intimidation.



    Alternately, I have always been a fan of the L6 BMW motor sounds. It's unique to me, like a Ferrari.



    And I love a 4 rotor motor, it's an audible brain rape. Unearthly.

    I don't think this contends with the F40, but just ran across this and had to add it here - fantastic noises:

    Default Honda sounds

    These Hondas sound even better than today's F1 cars.

    Too bad Honda never made a road version.
