Had the pleasure of hearing this car at Goodwood this year, has to be the loudest racing car I've heard (F1 included).

Does sound amazing, never heard a car like it. Evo magazine did a feature on it a few months back, fascinating to read. Apparently the engine had almost no wear but the chassis had a crack in it from the stress of racing.
