When it comes to cars, there are many things that keep us intrigued, be it engines, horsepower numbers, looks or performance. But the one thing that can either make or break the enthusiasm about a car is the engine and exhaust sounds it produces. Is it odd that something as simple as sound could mean the difference between love and hate for a vehicle? Sure, but you can’t tell us that you’d like your V8-powered muscle car as much if it sounded like a scooter.
That’s why this video from Jason Lewis is so fantastic. The man behind the V10-powered Maverick we showed you awhile back is an automotive YouTube sensation and this mash-up of “Best of Engine Noises” he’s come up with will have you drooling all the way through. Check it out above.
From high-end super and luxury cars, to hot rods and American muscle, Lewis has driven them all. Lucky for us, he’s also taken a few cameras along for the ride. What has resulted is six minutes of pure automotive sound bliss.
You hear engine and exhaust sounds all the time, including some probably killer notes coming from your own toys. But no where else have we found a way to experience some of the best sounds possible from a vast array of vehicles than this.In just six minutes, there are 11 vehicle experiences to enjoy, including a symphony of sounds from a modern Shelby GT500 Super Snake, Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Inaugural Edition, 1965 Corvette Sting Ray, 1932 Ford Hi-Boy, 1982 Camaro Z28 and even legendary driver Sam Hubinette’s drift-prepared Challenger. There are also appearances by Mike Ryan’s race Freightliner Cascadia for those into something radically different and a Lotus Evora, Ducati 996 Desmoquattro Corse, Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster S and an Aston Martin V12 Vantage Coupe for those into the higher end vehicles.
Whether you’re looking for an awesome pick-me-up, a conversation piece or just pure euphoria for the rest of your day, this video will not disappoint. And don’t forget to weigh in and tell us which vehicles were your favorite.
