SHARE: Philippine Car News - What difference do two extra cylinders make?

It's easy to tell a four-cylinder engine from a 12-cylinder mill just by the sound alone. The noise of a screaming four-pot is very different from that of the high-pitched whine emitted by something akin to a Formula 1 car's engine. But what about a V6 and a V8 engine? Can you tell the difference just by the addition--or subtraction--of two cylinders between a V6 and a V8 using only your ears?

Well, Jaguar is letting us know with a short video starring its new F-Type roadster. Available with either a 3.0-liter V6 or a 5.0-liter V8, the F-Type is heard and then seen roaring away from the camera, first with the V6 and then with the V8.

Judging by the video, it seems the V8 has a more aggressive sound than the V6. What do you think?
