1966 Triumph Vitesse Six taken for a drive in English countryside. I took the road to March, then turned off at the Wyton airfield and drove through Kings Ripton. Although the roof is closed, notice the wind noise - it really is this noisy to drive. I reach 70 MPH a couple of times and manage a nice slide at one point though you can barely hear the tyres screech over the noise of the engine. Recorded using Soundman OKM microphones and a ZOOM H4. Post processing is minor EQ in Sound Forge to remove subsonic boom. Saved as FLAC. Enjoy!

    A great effect my friend, love the sound of old car engines, more heavy and stronger a sound than modern engines. I like this a lot, many thanks. :)

    Just great, old sixes are like music to me. What with the gearwhine and the sound of the engine at high revs..

    Great stuff, really enjoyed listening to it. Cheers.

    As promised, here is a link to the finished song:


    Although your recording runs throughout the song, I did vary the levels and make one edit in the beginning, to get the car "started" faster. Hope you enjoy. Thank you so much.

    This is very funny. I needed the sound of a sports car, on a country drive, for a song I'm working on. The song is about an incident that occurred when I was in highschool. What's interesting, is the incident occurred in a 1966 Triumph, so this sample could not be more perfect for my purposes. Thank you so much. I'll post a link when the song is finished.
