    So, JCS, being able to choose a variety of engine sounds is kind of like LUT’s for cars!

    Good analogy! + SOOC camera looks for the target goal / requirements is cool when possible.

    Must be anyone who drives with Straight Out Of Car sound, is either lazy... haha!

    As cars become more electronic, i find i apply camera logic to them. Like for battery care and firmware updates. Etc.

    That is undeniably pretty.

    It was very pretty.
    I disassembled the car and rebuilt it not to concours standards, but to make it a bulitproof daily driver.
    Fully adjustable coilover racing suspension, Norwood electronic ignition, light weight aluminum racing radiator with twin electric fans, the removal of right at 400 lbs, and much more.
    All said and done it was faster that a Ferrari F355 which was 20 years newer.
    Sadly the car was vandalized by a neighbor to the tune of over $17K and I ended up selling it.

    Back around 1989 or 1990 (?) I saw a program on TV that reviewed a company that either was making or planning to make a product that did this. They showed it in action as a guy drove around in a little compact Japanese econo car that sounded (interior) like a high performance exotic. Sure it wasn't fast at all but it sounded cool. I think I still have it recorded on tape somewhere.

    Gah! Heart breaking! Though 17years is a good run. Amazing work and a testament to your discipline and maintenance.

    I do like how challenging it must have been to craft a car so well in small numbers back then. 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s saw some of the most awkward car designs. But in that some of the best as well. Car designers have generally rode the line, and follow the overall trend. By the 80’s what else could they do with 4 wheels and a cabin? Everything has to come together, and idk, that ferrari is a beaut!

    The new Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio - or derivations thereof - should have a 2.9L twin-turbo (I think it's going to be an electric twin-charger similar to what's found in Jeeps) with 620 hp. That's 207 hp per liter of displacement.

    FWIW, Daimler Benz is already making an engine with 208 hp/l for A45 AMG model, using an electronic wastegate.

    My favorite sounding engine. As soon as you think the Ferrari is bad-azz, in strolls Satan himself. ( wear headphones to do this justice!):

    Beside the engine sound captured, two things I love about that clip:

    1) The way the camera whips back as if to say “wth?!?” and how it visually anticipates the RSR’s arrival.

    2) The little kid running alongside who covers his ears in reaction to the throaty roar!
