Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve noticed something…
Let me first start by saying that all Lamborghinis in this game sound amazing. However, I feel like there’s an issue with how the newer V12 models (Murcielago SV LP670-4, Aventador LP700-4, and Veneno). Read on and tell me if you see what I see, or if I’m just imagining things…
Anyone who knows Lamborghini’s history knows that the Aventador (and subsequently, the Veneno) introduced Lamborghini’s first all-new V12 engine since the screaming days of the Countach. With that new V12 came a new soundtrack.
I cant explain it myself, so I’ll let a couple of videos do the talking for me… FYI i couldn’t embed any, but take a look anyway.

And now the Aventador LP700-4 (acceleration around 00:58)
Once again, every Lamborghini in Forza Horizon 2 sounds awesome. But I do think that there’s something off about the way the Aventador, and the Veneno sound. IMO, they sound way too similar to the Murcielago, whether using the exterior, in-car, or bumper camera views…
Also the Veneno, since it shares the same engine with the Aventador
I recognize the fact that they all do have 12 cylinder engines, so technically they really should sound pretty similar, but there are BIG differences in the way these cars should sound, both in real life and in-game.
As a matter of fact, the only racing game I’ve played so far that gets the Aventador V12 right has been NFS Most Wanted (2012).
Hear for yourself, and compare it to the rest…

Now, I’m not comparing entire games here, just sounds. But I do think that for all the detail you can find in Horizon 2, the Lamborghini V12’s should be making the right noises.
So tell me, am I just being nitpicky here, or do you guys out there hear the same things that I do (don’t)?
PS Hey, Turn 10. Think it could be solved in a patch some time in the future?
