Screamers: 11 Loudest Cars
While some automakers such as Lexus brag about how quiet and refined their vehicles are, not everyone wants to be able to balance glasses of champagne on their hood. Some want a car that’s just as loud and crude as they are, brashly announcing everywhere they go that it’s a superior machine to other vehicles on the road.
If you’re in the market for such a car, check out any of the following eleven options. While some might not exactly be in your price range, you can always fantasize what it would be like to drive them.
Jaguar F-Type R Coupe
The British love their cars, and anyone with a proper set of eyeballs loves the Jaguar F-Type. The vehicle is unmistakably gorgeous from any angle, something that sadly can’t be said of the incredibly angry designs that have been popularized by BMW.
For those who love to feel the rush of incredible, raw acceleration, as well as hear the wail of a burly V-8 engine, the F-Type R Coupe is pure heaven. When cruising on the highway, all it takes is a quick downshift to hear a chorus of automotive joy issue out of the tailpipe, reminding you of why you want to personally shake the hands of the car’s development team for creating such a work of art.
We’re not talking about just any old version of the classic Galaxie, but the burly 7-liter version of the car that Ford itself celebrated by slapping a million special badges all over the body. The car was in-your-face in so many ways, especially when the engine revs up and a wicked exhaust note bellows out.
Sadly, you’ll have to hunt pretty hard to track down a 7-liter Galaxie, because Ford made them as a dedicated model for one year, then offered it as a special package for a few more before doing away with them altogether. It’s a shame, but your hard work at tracking one down will pay off when you can’t hear anyone who isn’t shouting at you.
A fully-loaded minivan
This is a bit of a curve ball, but parents understand that a minivan loaded up with hyper children is the loudest thing on wheels, at least on the inside. Just try to have a conversation or think straight while behind the wheel of such a thing, and you will take on the impossible.
