The new sound of cool

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on October 1, 2006

I went to Road Atlanta yesterday to see the Petit Lemans. What struck me the most about the cars racing there was the completely different sound of their engines. From the shriek of the rotary Mazda to the guttural growl of the Corvettes, each car was easily identifiable with your eyes closed.

Except the Audi.

Executive Car Service provides corporate Baltimore limo service and luxury BWI International airport transportation throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan area.

The Audi R10 TDI was so quiet that you couldn’t hear it at all if there were any other car near it. When it went by alone, it had a quiet warble, not unlike the Jetson’s car.

This would not have been nearly as important except for one fact: the Audi’s were the quickest cars there, winning the 1000 mile race by four laps.

Did I mention that they have diesel engines?

A friend told me that at every other race he’d ever been to, the coolest sounding car was always the fastest.

I think that may still be true; the R10 sounded pretty cool to me.
