There are many ways in which two supercars can upstage one another, but nothing is more glorious to the ears than a good ol’ fashion rev-one-upsmanship.
The protagonists on this video are a Ferrari F430 and an Audi R8 . Each car comes with a bonafide monster of an engine - the F430 has a naturally-aspirated 4.3-liter V8 engine with 510 horsepower while the R8 comes with a 4.2-liter V8 engine that has an output of 420 horsepower. Basically, there won’t be any shortage of noise in both of them.
The question now is which of these two supercars is louder than the other. Personally speaking, the German supercar makes for an impressive ear-crackling sound, but in this case, we’ll give the nod to the Italian stallion, which has made a tradition out of producing some of the most powerful machines on the planet.
But at the end of the day, supercar enthusiasts will love waking up to this kind of sound from either of these mammoth beasts, so really, there are no losers here; just the sound of revving monsters that’s music to all out ears.
