Giving Meaning to Two Simple Colors: The Gulf Racing Porsche 917

Not much needs to be said, the pictures speak for themselves. This in my opinion is one of the most beautiful pieces of engineering in motorsports history. It seems so counter intuitive that something built strictly for function, for winning races, could carry itself so elegantly. The swooping lines, the presence, the sound. It looks to be more of an artistic endeavor than an engineering feat.

The L28 Straight Six: The Sound of an Era
Arguably one of the best sounding motors to come out of Japan, its sad to say that these are a dying breed. With manufacturers moving to V setups and using more fuel efficient motives, a motor such as this from the iconic 240Z, among other Nissans, is a rarity and symbol of a different time.
I’ve always had such a strong affinity for these motors. They’re reliable, simple, easy to work on. With velocity stacks like in the photo above? They sound unbelievable. Easily one of my all time best sounding motors. 
To get a taste, i feel these two videos really bring out the hair raising sound that this beast produces:
