THE SOUND OF SIX

Can someone point me in the direction of a proper sounding V6 on sale?

Can someone point me in the direction of a proper-sounding V6 on sale? The question popped into my head after hearing an Alfa Romeo 147 GTA fly past the other day. There’s plenty of decent examples. Nissan’s GT-R blasts out a great burble and the F-Type’s raspy and loud. But I miss the purity of atmo engines found in things like the VW Golf R32.

Nothing atmo springs to mind, Terry, though the Lexus RC350 is okay, but the best-sounding V6 we’ve heard recently is the twin-turbo Mercedes-C43 AMG with the optional performance exhaust.
