Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne recently said that an electric Ferrari would be “almost obscene,” as a huge part of the driving experience of a Ferrari is the exhaust noise. Marchionne’s right, and if you don’t think so, we have a feeling the video above should have you convinced.
Taken by YouTube car spotter Gumbal, it shows a Ferrari 458 Speciale with an extremely loud aftermarket exhaust terrorizing Monaco’s streets as its 4.5-liter V8 greets the redline over and over again. This being Monaco, there’s countless other supercars in the background of the video, but none make a nosie as impressive or as loud as the Speciale.
This aftermarket exhaust doesn’t have the perfectly tuned sound of the stock 458 Speciale exhaust, but we appreciate its unadulterated, racecar-like noise just as much. Check it out in the video above.
