Porsche Carrera GT Races Ferrari 599 GTB, Combined Exhaust Notes Are Heavenly

When a Porsche Carrera GT drag races a Ferrari 599 GTB, you’ll want to be present. Sure, these cars may no longer be among the fastest four-wheeled things money can buy, but when it comes to the aural pleasures they can deliver, the pair will easily give contemporary supercars and hypercars a run for their money.

The Zuffenhausen and the Maranello creations battled it out on an airfield, with both drivers being determined to get the most out of their machines.

Unfortunately, the camera is found in the wrong car. We’re sorry to say this, but while the Ferrari 599 GTB’s V12 sounds delicious, the V10 at the center of the Carrera GT definitely makes it the supercar to remember here. While the V12 concert of the Ferrari can be replicated by other Prancing Horses, the high-pitched F1-style soundtrack of the Carrera GT is downright memorable.

Nevertheless, the video does allow the two voices to mix, which means we are dealing with one of the sweetest duets we’ve enjoyed this season.

If we take a moment to think about how the modern-day correspondents of the cars we see here have evolved, we might just ruin our mood a little. Compromise is the word to use here.

While the Porsche 918 Sypder did follow the Carrera GT in the Porsche halo car seat, the LaFerrari isn’t directly connected to the 599, we’ll remind you Ferrari’s first official gas-electric experiment was the 599 HY-KERS concept.

Sure, the hybrids that serve as Ferrari’s and Porsche’s halo cars nowadays may deliver exceptional performance, taking us towards a greener go-fast future. But we can’t help feel they are a bit of a sacrifice on the eco altar. And with those 1.6-liter turbo engines, you can’t even mention the F1 soundtrack nowadays.

However, we're not here to kick off the weekend in such a mood, which is why we're inviting you to hit the "play" button below.
