The Best Sounding F1 Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Ever, the 643. Listen…
We all lament that F1’s naturally aspirated engine days are in the scrapbook for now, and maybe gone forever. But, some of the cars of the era remain on this earth with us.
With exhaust notes un-muffled by turbochargers, their wild shrieks are now little more than echoes of the past. Natural aspiration has a well-earned place in our hearts. Because of our affliction for the sound of all naturally aspirated engines great and small, we are distracted by cars like this, the Ferrari 643, 1 of the single greatest sounding cars of all time.
In this video, courtesy of YouTube channel Marchettino, we see the 1991 Scuderia Ferrari 643 being driven around Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, or as we know it, Imola.
The Ferrari 643 was driven by Jean Alesi, Alain Prost, and Gianni Morbidelli.
It is powered by the Tipo 037 V-12 engine, with 3,499cc of displacement, and its cylinders banked at 65 degrees. It had a 13:1 compression ratio and made 710 hp at 13,800 RPM.
The car was filmed at Historic Minardi Day 2017, an event sponsored by Giancarlo Minardi, who ran a F1 e team in his namesake between Y’s 1985 and 2005 with little success, before selling the team to Red Bull, who then dubbed it Scuderia Toro Rosso.
The event itself was a showcase of F3, F2, F1, and Grand Touring cars.
It also hosted historic F1 engineers and drivers, and at the Inaugural Y 2016 event, a total of 27 past drivers showed their faces, and were accessible in the open paddock.
For those of who were unable to attend, we can still listen to the wild noted made by the Ferrari 643.
