Top 5 Loudest Cars Ever Tested

< Back to blog

Cars that are nearly as noisy as rock concerts? Yep, you heard it loud and clear (pardon the pun). Bonfire Night is nearly upon us, so to add to the raucous firework display, we’ve compiled a list of the 5 loudest cars that have ever been tested.

So, stick your ear muffs on and endulge yourself!


1. Dodge Challenger Hellcat

Everything about the Dodge Challenger Hellcat is nothing short of monstrous. Most importantly, its exhaust note is among one of the loudest in the market.

With a massive 707bhp V8 engine under the hood, the car lets out a ‘growl’ of around 100 decibels, which is only 20 decibels short of the average noise of a rock concert (120 decibels).


2. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R

The Ford Mustang is a household name in the muscle car segment and, like the Dodge Challenger Hellcat before it, it’s seriously loud. Namely, it produces a not insignificant 92 decibels which is definitely enough to wake the neighbours after you fire it up before the morning commute.


3. Porsche 911 Carrera S

Compared to the other two cars before it, the Porsche 911 Carrera S doesn’t look mighty by any sense of the imagination.

Nevertheless, as the saying goes: they don’t make diamonds as big as bricks. And boy is the 911 Carrera S a diamond.

Not only is its 394bhp engine great to drive and makes it very quick, but it’s also got a sports exhaust attached to it which produces a sound as loud as 94.2 decibels. A roaring soundtrack to go with equally roaring performance.


4. Lexus LC 500


The Lexus LC 500 is a proper sports car, with a gorgeous design, low aerodynamic body and a powerful V8 engine.

Speaking of the engine, it makes a super load noise from its exhaust, especially when you throttle it. This particular car can reach up to 88 deicbels, which the RNID (Royal National Institute for Deaf People) warns could be dangerous if you’re exposed to it for anymore than four hours.


5. Porsche Carrera GT

One of the loudest Porsche models available, the Carrera GT doesn’t have official decibel numbers published. But take our word for it that it’s got a noise that you’ll find hard to understand how it’s legal.

Not only does this car look sharp and grab attention, but its very loud engine makes sure you look at it the moment you fire it up.
