You're not kidding. Thje cold start idle sound turns heads in the entire parking lot.
Man I would love if they could make it sound like that all the time. When I get off a late night shift at work I start the car and will stand next to it listening to that insane v8 cold start idle. It's pure euphoria and is one of the best sounding engines I've heard in the last 20 years.
