Any videos of a 4C with standard exhaust and 4C with sports exhaust?
I bet on the sports version, a well-tuned resonator could get a much nicer note than with no silencers at all.
I've seen one come by but can't find it anymore for posting here. Also the movies taken at the Festival Of Speed of the grey 4C; that one had a standard exhaust. Basically it is the same noise just much less volume.
From all youtube clips I saw, I was very sceptical. It sounds like a diesel at idle and like a souped up Golf at revs in most flicks. But then I had the fortune to see one in the flesh at a dealer who was nice enough to start it for me to hear it. Nothing prepares you for it.
- First the high pitched whine of the fuel pump which sounds like there is a transformer underneath that is about to come out.
- Then slight detonation / blurp
- Then something growling representing idle, very rough and industrial sounding, but already incredibly loud.
- When the dealer hit the gas, everybody standing around burst out laughing. It sounded like god shouting at an angry gorilla who was torturing a tiger.
My idea was to not use it in traffic, but at weekend mornings sneak out before the sun comes up to take it for a blast. I wonder how long it will take for the neighbours to reach for the torches and pitchforks now
Thinking about off-site storage.
