A car can be “made” by many things. An incredible engine, handling to die for, a body so beautiful that it makes you weak at the knees. But some cars posses a defining feature that is subtle to many who don’t obsess over the fine details of a car – the exhaust.
Video: 11 best car exhausts ever
Sure you can easily hear when a car has a big, fat, noisy exhaust on it, but then that could just be a Pinto down your local Walmart that appears to have backed into a tunnel. We’re talking about cars that have been given a fantastic set of exhausts, and it could mean they look amazing – like the Pagani Zonda – or that they sound amazing – like, er, the Pagani Zonda – or even both – you get the picture.
We’ve picked out 11 from history, some are cars that have already gone down in legend for other reasons (the TVR Sagaris could have had the most normal exhaust in the world and it would still turn heads). Others aren’t really remembered fondly for anything other than the rear outlets. For whatever reason though, these stick in our minds.
But which is your favourite exhaust on any road car?
