Video: Best Supercar Sounds of 2011

Nothing makes a grown man more giddy with childish excitement than the sounds of a V8 blowing through the wind.

You can never really appreciate a supercar until you hear the roar of its engine as it accelerates to 60mph, 100mph, and beyond; or when it snaps and snarls on a downward gear change upon approaching a corner.

From guttural soundtracks of Lamborghnis and Ferraris to the distinctive notes of Porsche, McLaren and Mercedes-Benz, we can never get enough of these sexy sounds. Perennial Youtube video maker SpotterGijs has collected footage from the Nurburgring, Gumball 3000 and other locations around the globe he took over the past year and put together this succinct video and we applaud him for his efforts. Keep up the good work in 2012.
