Music video clips featuring cars are all nice and dandy, but how about tracks that incorporate their aural charms?
Plenty of people have attempted to harness the natural music a car produces and turn it into something most ears can tolerate, but precious few have pulled that off, including the Top Gear crew.
You might find some have a small grab of automotive-related sounds, but most tastes are catered for, from howling Formula 1 engines to a starter motor that can’t quite coax the engine into life.

A German DJ’s homage to the unstoppable M.Schumacher- A dominant force in 1990’s F1 racing, who some accused of making the sport ‘boring’.

Has a distinct engine sound at the start, but like a Doors song ever needs any justification. Enjoy.

Primus- Jerry Was A Racecar Driver
This offbeat number from guitar maestro’s Primus featured in the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skateboarder on N64.
Motörhead – Motorhead
This eponymous track helped put these headbangers on the map. Kinda justifies the name of the band, too.
