More like the Ferrari 458 GTE race car


The C8.R has a slightly deeper tone vs. the 458 more high pitche and almost like the 488. Maybe because both the 488 and C8.R are turbo.


Out of all three, I like the 458 the best.

Some say it might be a V6 TT but it does not sound like the Ford GT. The C8.R has a much more aggressive sound compared to the more wimpy sounding Ford GT.
Wimpy? Go hear an FGT in person. Videos don't do justice to the base notes. Either way I'm glad the C8Z might be getting a racier FPC engine. Might just have to pick one up in convertible form.
