    Have we figured out what the deal is with the exhaust sound? All of the European video clips of the new model have a very subdued exhaust tone to them, and it also seems like something is stopping the cars from being rev'd in neutral. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm very anxious to find out if the US spec model will have the same particulate filter and subdued nature...

    I did 30 miles in my local UK dealer's brand new V10 Performance demonstrator today. It does sound more subdued than the previous model, particularly on the downshifts. It's lost some of the rasp and edge that it used to have. In neutral, revs are limited to 3,000 rpm.

    That's a shame. They probably want to ensure that the r8 is the cheaper Huracan alternative this generation that will not canibilize those sales, especially with the Evo just being released. I chose the R8 over the Huracan but they might be trying to push people into the Lambo with the more civilized exhaust of the R8.

    That’s hugely disappointing. Hopefully the US market won’t have to abide by the same design since we can get away with a lot more here. Otherwise, I foresee the aftermarket and tuning scene to get a lot of new business from facelift owners to open up the pipes a bit.
