    Yes thats how the M119s sound if you make a good exhaust. I knew from the beginning of the vid when the car moves away from the cameraman that this is a M119. To many Videos of different made 500E exhaust heard, they all have something distinctive.
    Listen to Svooks 500E RB exhaust, it sounds very similar in the lower tone frequencies:

    Re: What a sound...

    No guys, i like it. Other videos i know- nothin close to this wild scream =)
    I wouldn´t want to have one, but i love it.
    PS Has nothin to do with "ami sound", muuuch too fine and smooth, comparing to primitive american engines
    M117 revvs up to slow. No no no.
