Well, not actual bees, just the entomological wail of a race-prepped Mazda rotary, trapped inside a Mazda RX3 and racing through the 2010 Rally New York Autumn Rally Sprints. It is one of the loudest rally cars you'll ever hear.

Epic-sounding rally cars are nothing new here, but there's always time for more appreciation of the racket of a rotary.

If you want to hear more of the growing din of a race-prepped Mazda, you must, must watch this video of a 787b roaring down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans. It is not to be missed.
