jag D-type

John Player special lotus 72

McLaren-Mercedes MP4 22

"cockroach" peugeot 908

audi quattro

porsche 917

alfa 8C 2300

these are my favourites...but i must say among the nicest sounding cars there are a few that've caught my ear in addition to the obvious f1 screamers, and these are the 12-cyl engines i heard in the aston martin dbrs9s at le mans, and the murcielago that sadly ran just a single lap, but by god, what noise it made!! total happiness.

Can some one tell if the 3 rd pic is a Ford GTR or something.

 

If I'm not mistaken, that is the prototype/pre-production of the Ford GT. Note the "GT40" letter on the sill.

What about the Lamborghini Miura that stars in the opening shot of 'The Italian Job' (original)...'on days like these when skies are blue and fields are green' a haunting song from a haunting movie <and the remake just fell flat on its face; lacked all the pizzaz of the old one>

A racing car is one that has been designed to race

 

NOT - one that has raced once

Mr Goodwin - no Auto Union D Wagen ?

Surprising how after the Miura the Lambo guys forgot the art of making beautiful cars!!
