I was just about to say..."how did you get to ride in one!?" That is even cooler that you got in for winning.

One of the best sounding engines in the world right now IMHO.

Nope, he was the driving force behind that car......it went to production because of him.....

458 or LFA? 458

360 or LFA? 360 CS
Those sound nice as well, but it is a different sound. the LFA has a higher pitched sound more similar to a F1 car than any road car. Ferrari has more of a bark rather than a scream.

It sounds a lot better in person than the monotone microphone on the iphone can pick up.

+1, I got to ride in LFA at NJMP with Scott Pruett driving on Lighting 1.9mile race track the sound of LFA at full throttle is truly epic it really does come closest to F1 car sound nothing like Ferrari, and yes all Ferrari sound great and they do sort of have bark to them.

For fun some sound clips of LFA and 458

sound clip LFA full flight


sound clip LFA Acceleration


sound clip 458 full throttle on track


sound clip LFA
