Cool...almost sounded like a siren from the s/c! Kind of a way to let everyone know you are coming!

The whistle in the supercharger engines can be discerned from anywhere I mean you can predict that a supercharger car is approaching but I gotta tell you that after the car runs off past the camera I didn't like the way it sounds , it's like hippo belch lol . The exhaust sound from the pipes never growns on me but hey that's my a cup of tea

To me, it sounded like a jet airplane sight unseen. Very cool! Thanks, Jim.

great sounds, it is mesmerizing.

quick story; when i was around 15yrs old and fooling around with cars, my father said,well if you want to go fast you gotta have a supercharger, so i told my friends we have to find a big BATTERY charger! Hey ,iwas only 15, gimme a break!

odd thing is how was my dad so smart 1952!

Loud supercharger whine, like a jet flying overhead. Though after it passed it sounded like a bike to me.

Awesome, nothing like the sound of a screaming Supercharger, to me it is far more appealing than the "whine" of a turbo and that exhaust note ....................

I sure wish I knew what mods if any were done to that XFR? Maybe a pulley and rear mufflers? Or just stock?
It sounds like a cruise missle coming and a predator missle going. Unreal!!!
