The Mazda 787B already holds esteem as one of the most iconic race cars in history, highlighted by its successful win at the 1991 Le Mans 24 Hours race. That win make it the first and only Japanese race car to win the prestigious endurance race.

For a race car that holds so much esteem, the folks over at Turn 10 Studios decided to bring the 787B into their game as part of their February ALMS Car Pack.

In this video, we catch up with some of the people responsible for bringing the 787B into the virtual world. More than just the sheer sight of the green-and-orange racer romping Forza 4, the 787B’s defining quality will always be its four-rotor Wankel engine, the source of what Turn 10 Studios says is the loudest engine they’ve ever recorded.

For something that often falls in the realm of hyperbole, the 787B has a legitimate claim to that title. It’s so loud that it actually beat the TVR Cerbera Speed 12, a car that packed a sizzling 960 horsepower and 650 lb/ft of torque.

Check out the video and find out the lengths Turn 10 Studios had to go through to fully capture the banshee-like screams of the Mazda 787B. Better yet, turn up the volume and listen to it yourselves!

Was it really necessary to boast its noise? I’d rather be annoyed; it’s like an all-talk person.

It’s a mouth-watering roar coming from Mazda.

It seems like I’m not the only one who has a concern for its speed.

I agree that it was the loudest, but could it be the fastest?

Nevertheless, its noise only irritates my ears. It’s truly dynamic though.

Wow, certified loudest roar of an engine I’ve ever heard. Is there any possibility that there will be a car that will beat this up?

It’s a nice try to scare, but it doesn’t really work if it isn’t sided by an astounding performance. It’s cool that Mazda actually lived up to the good run, nonetheless.

It’s okay for Mazda 787B to create such a loud noise because it can prove its arrogance anyway by performing powerfully.

Yeah, its noise does truly sound intimidating from the start. It only warns the others of its foreboding vicious performance.

I believe that it’s not always the one with the loudest noise which is the best. However, I think that the Mazda 787B has used all its might to prove its capability there.

I wonder if its pompous appearance is worth of all the attention it is getting. I have to see yet if it’s high performing.

So, does its noise make any difference? Pardon me for I haven’t heard of its performance’s record. Although it outdid TVR Cerbera Speed 12 in terms of sounds, I want to make sure that its arrogance is reasonable and worthy.
