    V10 M5-powered E46 M3. Forget the F4R, this is what an n/a engine should sound like.

    I wish I'd have taken a video of that 136 dB Mk3.

    ‘Frightening’ I bet !

    I went in a tin-top with a F3 driver once. Enlightening, scary, eye-opening and belittling doesn’t come close to how much skill, talent and bravery these guys have.

    Getting sideways at 110mph and calmly saying “...well: this is interesting” midway through the crisis still lives with me now.

    Actually not frightening at all but very exiting. The man really knows his business. I knew after the first couple of meters that this had nothing to do with what I knew about driving a car so far. We were blasting past everything...Ferraris, Porsches you name it. The bikers were just indicating with arms and sometimes even feet that he should pass. :laughing:

    The M3 in question belonging to his father and some friends.

    We've a saying in German about "opening or closing the door" on somebody/something. With opening the door he indicated he's willing to let him pass. That's at least my assumption. :wink:

    The second Opel Ascona wasn't that nice. That's why he got the finger at some point.:smile:

    Some more info on the engine. Apparently these guys designed the engines but then sold the designs to other motorsport companies. https://www.engineswapdepot.com/?p=2868

    Awesome mate. Hartley do some amazing stuff.

    A little older but quite nice tarmac rallye video with great sound from a member over at cliors.de.



    There of course are some Renaults in it. Various types of Clios, the most crackling Megane I ever heard and a Twingo R1 losing a mirror at a lantern pole.

    quick shifter. cuts the ignition for tenth of a second which means you can keep the throttle pinned.
