Not enough low end grunt on the F40 sound...
I'd bet the BRM is actually faster
600HP @ 12000 RPM
The car weighed 1600LBS wet.

Scary fast with drum brakes

For me, most 12 cylinders, esp V12s, are the most beautiful sounding cars

Me too, and exactly that variety...

As far as cars though, this one really does "do it" for me I have to admit...

It's hard to see, but they come out the top and the bottom. Looking at the rear of a car with one of these, usually you would see 4x exhaust pipes coming out - two above and two below the axles/suspension. This is basically a 4 into 1 header for each cylinder block.

This thing is like two flat-8's piled on top of each-other. I imagine it's a narrow-angle V a lot like VW's VR engines. So you could also look at it as two V8's sharing a crank, with the traditional top of each V8 facing horizontally outward.

Anyway, I think the exhaust ports are under the black strips just inboard of the valve covers. You can see the oil pumps between the intake ports too. What a wild and crazy power plant...

EDIT: Here's a cool view that shows port placement a little better:

BRM H16

Another EDIT: OH MY FOAMING GOAT - it's two flat 8's, literally, with dual crankshafts gear driving a common output shaft. WTF???

BRM H16 info

That must be amazing. Years ago I was outside and heard a roaring sound. I looked up and it was a B-29. I still question that because I thought there were only 1 or 2 of those flightworthy anymore but it had the round nose and the HUGE tail and it was definitely a B-29. It sounded like a whole team of Harleys passing by in the sky, only awesome. I just stood there for a while and I will never forget that moment as long as I live. To be able to take a ride in something like that, I would probably pass out a few times.

I was on the flight-line as B-52s did touch-and-go drills. That's some noise right there.

here's one landing to have sample of it.
