When it comes to exhaust notes, I must admit I’m a sucker for V-8s. The older the better. I’m not particularly excited by the sound of the Fiat 8V, but play me any American V-8 soundtrack from the 1960s and early 1970s and I’m a happy chap. However, that doesn’t make me impassive to other engine notes. Some V-12s are equally enchanting to my years, but, from time to time, i do like to absorb the flat stuff. As in boxer engines, the kind Porsche has used since... forever. Its classic flat-12 race engines are outstandingly impressive, but I can’t say no to the mechanical wail of a flat-six. Who could?
