IMO The 1M sounds awesome with an Akrapovic exhaust, this engine should be no different.

Funny thing is, the so called M purists hate on the inline-6 sound that has been a long standing trademark of the M division........ The first ever real M engine was the M88/1 and it was an inline-6, and one with a ~7K RPM redline at that. For Group 5 racing they turbocharged the M88 and called it the M88/2........ Depending on how they play out this new engine, they can claim to be doing a throw back to the early M racing engines.
Good to see something other than doom and gloom being posted, nicely done.
