Nothing tangible to base that on, other than my personal entirely subjective thing.
As I pointed many times before, using Ferrari engines it's only a recent thing, so are V8 engines. Maserati's history is rich of inhouse built 6 cylinder engines.

We have the brilliant F160 engine, which has an exhaust note second to none (well, maybe Jag's V6 in the F-Type is marginally better), why even mention the computer enhanced, fake sounding, engines of Porsche and others?

It was white a Renault Van? Right? The circle begins to close...
