What Car Sounds The Best?

The Pagani Zonda F might as well be called the Paganini Zonda F. They're both Italian and they both sound great. The massive 7.3-liter V12 pumps out explosion after explosion as if they were tied together by a composer. But nothing wimpy. No Brahms. We're talking about Wagner. We're talking about power.

It's said when a Zonda F drives by a hospital, individuals in the ICU briefly have a moment of awareness before slipping back into their comas.
