I have to say, its sounds more like a NASCAR motor than an F1 motor. But I don't think that's bad at all. I love the sound of the NASCAR V8s. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the fact that the M3 and a nascar motor are both V8s turning about the same RPM at speed.

Regardless, I love the sound and it doesn't seem overly quiet as some have described. I can't wait to take delivery.

I'm really curioius if they were using stock brake pads and also if there was any brake fade on the track. I heard a little squeel from the brakes a few times during the video, so I'm thinking they were race compound pads.

OzStriker, any idea on the brakes? Did you notice any fade?
