I kinda disagree with a few of those, they don't sound bad at all. BUT the GT does sound bad when it's close but sounds better and better as it gets further away.

So basically Road and Track doesn't like any performance car sound that isn't a V8.

I don't know that it's "hate", it's more that it just isn't as pleasing. There is just some harmonic pleasure to a V8. That said, I like plenty of 6's out there too. I just like 8-holers better.

I agree with pretty much all. While the GT is a fast car and looks very good. It does not have the sound that goes along with that price.

Any Ecoboost is awful. And not the exhaust, but the cheap-sounding electronic augmentation they blast inside.

Also, the Fiat 500 Abarth should be tops.

I had some guy with an aftermarket exhaust on his Fiat 500 Abarth, racing through traffic either up Kirk Rd. or 59 (I can't remember), the other day and it sounded absolutely like horse shit!

So yea, add that to the list too.

I will say, the F-150's are the most awful. The transverse application cars/suvs have at least a nice growl, but the trucks are just straight hot garbage.

I've never minded the GT though. It's got a satisfying growl and doesn't get overly raspy like some V6's can, and like what most EcoBoosts have.

Some people have been experimenting with homemade Helmholtz resonators to varying degrees of success with the EcoBoost cars and trucks. I just don't understand how they could make the Duratecs sound SOOOOO bad, when they sound pretty decent NA.

The ATS-V doesn't sound bad and neither does the M2. I was actually behind an M2 in traffic the other day. It was catless and had aftermarket exhaust. It sounded good IMO.

For real. I'd put an M4 on that list instead of the M2.

Yes, good call. Awful sounding car. Unfortunate for how good it is otherwise.

Im also surprised the GTR is on that list. I was unaware people do not like the noises that car makes. I certainly enjoy them.
