Every epic story has a great start. ‘Getting Started’ is a short video from Nitto Tires that includes the sights, but more importantly the sounds, of 33 amazing vehicles roaring to life!
There is something here for every enthusiast to enjoy, including classic European sports cars, vintage American muscle cars and of course modern supercars.
From the ’69 Jaguar E-Type’s quiet Inline-6 to the rumble of the Aventador’s 6.5L V12 and the punch of the Saleen S7’s twin turbos, we don’t often have the pleasure of hearing these fire up. Spanning decades, cylinder numbers, and displacements each engine¹s voice is as individual and recognizable as its body style. Just one of these cars is enough to get any automotive enthusiast¹s attention, but hearing all 33 unique cars one after another is like a symphony to any gearhead’s ears!
Speaking to TopGear.com, Nitto said: “We kept seeing videos of kids running with camcorders behind cars coming out of the Nurburgring but nothing special and high quality. So we decided to something really nice.
“The basis of the video is that there is more than the looks to cars, they have a soul that is very special to each one. The sound of the engines and exhaust are just as important as the looks.”
We also found a few “Easter Eggs” so to speak about some of the cars since a few of them come from famous backgrounds.
The 1971 DeTomaso Pantera was shot by Elvis when it wouldn’t start – The bullet hole is still there in the steering wheel.
Steve McQueen owned the 1957 Jaguar XKSS twice both early and late in his career.
The 1967 Ford GT40 Mark III was built purely for homologation. It is a true street car with “knock-off” center lug wheels and chrome bumpers.
