Silverstone Classic

Sound Off

Classic 'Sound Off'

It’s an age-old question and the subject of never-ending discussions between automotive enthusiasts: what is the best-sounding engine? Could it be the mighty roar of a V12? The thunderous rumble of a V8? The smooth howl of a six cylinder? The crisp bark of a well-tuned four cylinder? Or, perhaps, the primal scream of a two-stroke V4 racing bike?
To find out what you think, we've set-up a special online public poll with the help of Tiff Needell.
To open the debate, five of the fabulously symphonic machines that will be wowing the crowds at this year’s Classic, recently revved-up at Silverstone for a unique pre-event ‘Sound Off’. 

Watch the film and listen to the sounds here:
