SLR Stirling Moss road-test

Great car! Great noise - but the driving attire is a bit funny! Wearing goggles to drive is a bit of a blast from the past. Helmet might be a better option. A windscreen would be good too, but it'd detract from the classical 300 SLR inspiration.

That thing is seriously head-turning! And it sounds like a Supermarine Spitfire.

Sorry I've been away for a while, trying to catch up on your videos now.

Funny, the comment said tractor but I also thought of a classic airplane engine when I heard it. I wonder how they did it, lack of mufflers? Special firing order? 180-degree exhuast?

With that speed I would've wanted a helmet too, preferably an Arai carbon-fibre helmet with a HANS-device (I'm sure the car can brake hard too, especially with that aerodynamics it must have).
