We've had amazing feedback from our readers for our 'guess the car' series. It's pretty simple, we've recorded the audio for the start-up exhaust note, rev and pull-away of a car. 

Your job is to mail us here and give the name of the car you reckon it is. This is the fourth instalment of the series and we started with an easy one, and most people answered correctly that it is the Audi R8 V10.

The dry-sump 5.2-litre engine is shared with the Lamborghini Huracan, and in the four-ringed supercar it produces 449kW, sans turbocharging. It redlines at 8500r/min. 

The second instalment was a little trickier as it's a car that's for the most part flown under the radar. So, if you answered with the Toyota GT86 you were bang on the money. 

The GT86 is one of the few performance cars powered by a relatively small engine devoid of forced induction, the other notable example is the Mazda MX-5.

And if you thought the third clip was the Nissan GT-R, you'd be correct. Many users found the GT-R's noise to be unsatisfactory, but nevertheless its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine has a distinctive ring. 

And finally...here's the latest 'guess the car' challenge, remember to mail your answers to feedback@wheels24.co.za with your name and the answer.  

Good luck!
