You started this same thread and posted this same video a month ago. It isn't necessary to spam the car until it is sold.

May be so but I enjoyed seeing it again. They're just trying to make a living, and popularize our cars as best they can.

But yeah, maybe just adding something new to the existing thread's the way to go.

I fully agree, I am glad to see a few dealers posting on site, but how many have sold in US already? On this site what 2 or 3 ? So little chance that we see many clips here soon :-( I still want to know if the US cars Exhaust is quieter than other countries.. My short test drive I thought it wasn't as loud as the Porsche GT4 but I have seen videos showing that the 400 in England is louder.

I still want one but still having a hard time to justify price. I guess it would be easier if closer to a dealer.

Not trying to SPAM, car has been sold for approx 20 days now. I just wanted to start a thread with some nice exhaust videos. The new Evora 400 sounds really nice.

Was the exhaust in "Sport" or "Race" mode? it opens the exhaust.

Tried both modes ... It sounded good just wasn't as loud as I hoped or as loud as the GT4 I had.

If it is a European spec car, one possibility may be the titanium exhaust which is not yet available in the States. It is supposed to be coming over soon but hearing $10K+ in pricing.

The US 400 has a third cat which is not present on the Euro 400. A decat pipe just like the S and N/A will fix the sound problem.

Just picked up my new 400 a few weeks ago & it's certainly plenty loud enough for me. I actually take it off sport mode when I'm driving up my street to my house 🙊 I drove the European spec in Hethel and don't think it was louder though it's a bit hard to compare. 🙉

Sorry then. Since this thread was identical to the one you started a month ago or so I assumed it was for the same purpose.

So does the US 400 have a third cat or not?

Think I need to go for another test drive the next time I am close to a dealer. Haven't tried the stick yet anyway.

It does. When I did the first oil change I looked and confirmed.

Thanks for the videos Lawdogg149

If I have to go on an extended drive I will take it out of sport mode just to quiet the cabin, it sure is nice to be able to turn it on and off.
