Some race cars are not part of the F1 line up, yet they sound like they should be. A great example is the Ford F3L, which is an endurance race car, fitted with a DFV V8 engine that makes it sound like an 80s F1 car. It’s hard to fathom, yet truly wonderful to witness. Over the years, quite a few non F1 cars powered by F1 engines showed up at Historic Racing events across Europe, each and every one of them sending chills down our spine because of the distinct sound they produced. In this episode of “From The Archives,” you’ll be able to witness the best of these sounds.

Please note: This video is largely down to opinion and open for interpretation. Please leave your thoughts in the comments respectfully on whether or not YOU think these cars sound like F1 Cars. That being said, many of the cars in this video use an actual F1 engine or one that is derived from an F1 unit. The Ford F3L uses a DFV, the bright green Lola races with a DFV as well. The Peugeot 905 uses a V10 F1 power unit also. Many others in this video were simply selected by us because we think they sound like a certain F1-era, which might not be the exact era of the race car itself. That is what makes this video topic interesting to us and, as said before, we’d love to hear your opinion on it!

About “From The Archives”: Back in December of 2012, HistoricRacingHD was formed. Its foundations were an undeniable passion for cars and the desire to share that passion with the world. Over the next years, HistoricRacingHD would redefine the online video world of Historic Race Cars, with a relentless focus on the sounds these stunning machines produce when they’re racing on the most iconic and legendary tracks of Europe. Since 2012, we, Robin Wouters and Arne Hintermaier (founders of the channel), have travelled far and wide to find the loudest, most striking, weirdest and most magnificent historic race cars to bring them to your screen. 2012, however, was a long time ago, meaning that over the years, we have built up a massive archive of videos featuring race cars from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s racing at tracks like Le Mans, Spa-Francorchamps, Dijon Prenois, the Nürburgring, Hockenheim, Goodwood, and many, many more other tracks. With “From The Archives” we aim to bring back the best of everything we have ever filmed, simply for your enjoyment. You’ll see, as the videos are released, that “From The Archives” is divided into a large array of topics, meaning that at some point, your own favourite topic will be featured. So, do you care to join us to dive deep into the HistoricRacingHD archives? Be sure to strap yourself in and hold on tight, cause this will be an epic journey!
