maybe this is a "noob" question,but why does a v8 ferrari sound so different(better) than say a z06 corvette.they are both v8's but sound so different? i am in love w/the stradale sound!,if only i had an extra 200k sitting around!!

The shape of the combustion chamber and the exhaust ports and of course muffler make the ferrari sound..the ferrari engine is also a shorter stoke than the z06 which also affects the noise

And that "flat" crankshaft.....

(The throws are 180 degrees apart instead of 90 degrees)

That crank makes timing the v8 ferraris so fun...

also i would think the higher rpms make it sound different. and also the engine is smaller.

Yeah, true...Also, interesting enough Ferrari 360's(V8) sound better than 575M's(V12)

I was talking about the 575M...I know both F50 and the Enzo sound sweet

I have Best Motoring video of F50 doing 1/4 mile run. I don't know for sure if it has standard exhaust or not but that thing sounds like four superbikes accelerating side by side in synchronized fashion :crazy:

The Ferrari's Motor is alot smaller so that's why it sounds so much better and also the higher revs.

have you ever seen a maranello? or did you just played to much forza? beecause the sound in forza are everything but realistic(for the ferrari's at least).

my best friends dad has a 550 maranello. he has a leak in his exhaust, so it sounds shit now haha. but normally, it sounds amazing( he has the fiorano package though). dont get me wrong, i love the sound of the modena as well, but the F430 sounds even better.
