  1.  
  2. Sounds good on the way to you but as it passes and decelerates it sounds so ugly
     
  3. I like that decelerating "growl" :D
    it sounds mean.

    Oh my god, that whistle is awesome.
     
  5. Still better then the vacuum cleaners of Mercedes and Renault.:p
     
  6. STR is using Renault ;)
     
  7. Nice one:sleep:

    Kinda funny to see how sound can be different from a engine on the bench or when it's mounted in a car.

  8. I build and work with turbocharged cars everyday, so I love it.
    It'll never have the all-out high frequency of a V10 or V12, but that compressor spooling inside the torus is always a good sound.
     
  9. Nice sound, now we will have to see what it will look like. ps. To mods sorry about me making another thread, I didn't know that there was already one going.:(

  12. I really don't think it's that bad.

    it's only the Williams (may change opinion when actual car is shown) and Ferrari which I dislike so far.

  14. OH MY GOD! Sorry, but the McLaren is still the nicest car of them all. What an ugly nose...even worse than the Ferrari one. :D
     
  15. Those sidepods are really small. Renault demands much less colling than Mercedes by the looks of it.

    From a distance at a quick glance it looks really good, they have done a good job camoflaging the penis lol but damn its big...
     
  17. Ok I can see why Jean Eric called this a male car!!!
     
  18. The top one is bigger than usual, so it compensate I would guess.
