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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Well, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the speed performance of these cars. However, I think they have made an awesome detailing in here. It feels like listening to a opera music.

Based on what I hear, I like more the sound of Audi R8, it seems so smooth. However, when it comes to speed performance. I would say that I’m really impressed with the performance of the two.
