It was the car I really learned how to drive a manual in; I remember practicing in the Target parking lot. I had attempted to drive other manual cars, but this was the car I really was able to make move every time I released the clutch. That V10 was visceral. My eighteen year old self could seldom believe that one of my friends had access to a car like this.

I remember standing behind it one time while my friend revved it. It was one of the most glorious sounds I have ever heard. That V1o is just thunderous. I know the V8 in my M3 is the same engine with 2 cylinders lopped off, but that V10 sound is intoxicating.

If I ever have the space and cash for one, I’m buying it. Something like this. It might have faults, but I want it so bad.
