Thumbs up Sound recording of EB-EL XR8's..

Yello, has anyone recorded the beautiful V8 sound of thier EB - EL XR8's, or V8 Falcons? I wanted to compare the sound difference between the single exhaust system in the EB-ED Falcons and the split exhaust seen in the EF-EL..

Thanx, Mike..


I still like my Fords, but I drive an R31!

Cool, I'm making a collection of movies and sounds, so really any V8's or even nice sixes would do.. :p

Mr Sparkle,

This sounds a bit suss! For a start the car is a manual & I didn't think that the Supercharged 6 came as a manual... Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Also sounds like an 8

Huh??? Mine is a manual, his is an auto!! Read the description again - the camera was in HIS car, mounted on the dash on the far right side near the drivers A pillar, all his windows were up. You can't hear his engine or his exhaust - all you can hear from his car mechanically is the slight whine from his supercharger. All other noise is my XR8, penetrating his cabin!!!

Hell if you are that keen I can send you the raw 150mb digital video footage of it...

Actually better still, I invite you to come and have a listen to mine in the flesh... then you may feel free to call into question anything you like! :fly:

Re: Sound recording of EB-EL XR8's..

I can vouch for the Sparkles mobile...what a sound!
NO I DID NOT WANT TO GIVE BACK THE KEYS


my ebay listing went something like this...

You are bidding on a wife, 2 kids and a mortgage as I require a V8.

Funny enough the ebay people dont have a sense of humour
