US vs UK vs Germany - who's got the best V8 exhaust sound?

In the battle of the V8s the Americans used to have us Europeans licked.  But with the advent of Jaguar's fantastic supercharged 4.2 V8 and the 6.3 AMG V8 from Mercedes the scene is set.  Which sounds best, American, Brit or German metal?

Have a listen and let us know on Facebook, Twitter or the comments section below.

In the American corner we have the 1500bhp Corvette

Representing Germany is the Hamann Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

And for the Brits here's Jaguar's newest addition, the XFR-S

So, which do you reckon has the best exhaust sound?  Jag, Mercedes or Corvette?
