BRM V16 Engine Sound
The awesome engine sound from the BRM V16. A formula one car that was used in the 50s

I've heard this in real life twice. The first time was this exact car and was at Goodwood Festival of speed in about 1997, the second was at Goodwood revival a few years later. This sound good here, but compared to hearing in for real there is no comparison. You have no idea how loud this car is, even at half a mile away you still have to shout at someone standing next to you for them to be able to hear you. The most epic sounding engine ever made bar none.
Christ... Now if Formula One sounded like that, i'd bloody watch it. Audio porn!!!
"Sounds like Doctor Who's Lamborghini, rather than a lady, Conrads..."
-Ducky, from unanything wiki.
I come here often just to have the same type of nextlevel chills.
Nr 1 sound
Is this from Nick Mason's "Into The Red" book / CD?
You should play this at 1am in the morning with the speakers on the deck - sounds even better
"The V16 was a thoroughly nasty car," said Moss. "The brakes were OK, and the acceleration was incredible -- until you broke traction -- but everything else I hated, particularly the steering and the driving position." And what about handling? "I don't remember it having any." (from
Chasing the Title
by Nigel Roebuck)
This is the 4th time I’ve watched this today
I honestly get goosebumps from this
I feel so fortunate that I heard this monster at full chat 25 or so years ago at the British GP they gave it a run. 2 laps and then probably had to have a full engine rebuild. Never heard it rev so high again.
can I put that engine in my go kart
These recordings are of the H16, not the V16. The H16 was notorious for that misfire, one of its reliability weak points. But that exhaust sound is utterly amazing, easily the finest sounding engine, ever. I am trying to imagine one of these with compressed gas poppet valves for over 20,000 rpm running like on the now-extinct F1 V10's...
I remember the wonderful sounds, watching racing cars with open pipes, when I was a kid. I had ringing in my ears from the noise. The ringing never went away. Now I'm deaf. Today, we know to wear ear protection.
Wow, the 1950s F1 cars make better sounds than I initially thought! Great sound!
Wasn't the motor an H 16, not V16?
wow just amazing
still the best sounding 1.5 litre v16
