Well the obvious answer being the engine note but I have to say I'm a fan of music as well (as long as it isn't so loud as to override it (if that's even possible?)

Personal favourite I've found so far: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kD8sxIjVuc

I have to say that although i was only a nipper when this track was released, Lynrd Skynrd's full length version (not radio edit)of free bird takes some beating !! Slow build up , great rythm in the middle, and a frantic finish ! ooh err missus. Still one of the greatest driving tracks ever in my opinion. Oh and have a listen to Blue Swede 'Hooked on a feeling' simply fabulous.

Both great so far but from me:

Led Zeppelin - Kashmir, Black dog, Stairway to heaven
ACDC - Highway to hell
Lynyrd Skynryd - Sweet Home Carolina
Van Halen - Aint Talkin Bout Love
Pink Floyd - Wish You Where Here
Rolling Stones - You Can't Always Get What You Want, Gimme Shelter

Think thats enough classic rock for now LOL

Below 4.300 rpm (accelerating) I would still be able to hear something like:

Alternatively, some classic music:

Above that, the car stereo is completely drowned out by the decat/ CCCs... which I guess is my favourite track anyway.

Lifting the right foot, however, even beats that favourite track by light years... that's when at, around 3.400- 2.800 rpm, the tailgunner comes to life eek

I like music, but none can better the sound of a TVR. Which is why I never play music in the car.

I know what you mean, the sound of my car is my first choice, but any pink floyd track will also suffice. Or there is always tvr passions!!!;)
