The newer cars just sound somehow, cleaner. What’s the secret sauce in the older cars? Well the 360 as the name suggests has a smaller 3.6-litre V8, which still produces more than 110PS (81kW) per litre in these race versions. But its scrappier and more rabid in sound than the 4.3-litre of the F430 and 4.5-litre of the 458.
Obviously, these are racing cars, but I think they’re better-sounding than the race versions of the newer cars, just as the road-going Challenge Stradale is ‘peak’ Ferrari V8. Let us know what you think because, obviously, the Speciale especially is lauded as an all-time great. A better car? In every objective way, several times over, but in terms of sound? Nope. The Challenge, GT and N-GT take it for me.
