Video Proof That Current F1 Cars Sound Like Crap Compared To Good Old Days of F1. Turn Up The Volume.
Six, Eight, Ten and Twelve Cylinder F1 Cars Sound.
We know we weren't the first to complain about the new crop of horrible sounding F1 cars introduced in 2014. The sound has been described as "inverted blow drier sound engine note". In isolation you may argue that the current F1 cars don't sound all that bad, but when you compare them to the older F1 cars you quickly come to realize the shortfall.
The reality is that the older F1 cars are spectacular to watch and they sounded amazing, which was a key part of the F1 experience. To see what we mean check out the two videos below. The first features a wide assortment of F1 Ferraris featuring engines raging in cylinder number from six to twelve, with or without a turbocharger. It shows you a glimpse of the best sounds of these screaming engines, turn up the volume!
The second video below is another F1 engine sound comparison, but this time of Honda engines over the year. The video covers V12-V10-V8 and V6 F1 engines. It is a tribute to the evolution of Formula 1 engines: from 1992 (V12) to 2015 (V6) looking also at 2004 (V10) and 2007 (V8), with a special mention.
Want to see just how much faster an F1 car is versus a V8 Supercar and a Mercedes C63 AMG. In this video David Coulthard's racing in a 2011-spec Red Bull RB9 RB7. The reality is that the F1 is so much faster it is scarsly believable.
