Re: I really miss screaming V10s

Fantastic engines unlike the V8s. I really disagree with this. The V10's & 12's were certainly the absolute best sounding engines of all time, but the V8's sounded just as incredible in their own right and DID NOT sound bad at all. Different, but certainly not bad in any way. https://youtu.be/5jTTM...
