All three are amazing. I am left scratching my head as to why someone would turbo a 420, if that's even the original motor in there. It sounds exactly like my Euro 500 without exhaust. Minus the turbo noise of course. Why turbo a m116??

That sound is more Detroit than Stuttgart
It has a manual trans in the first section and in the second half it sounds like it has some serious cams
Prob just an overdub from another car...notice at 0:29 the car revs a little yet the guy doesn't get in the drivers seat until 0:56

Fake?...I reckon so

Ive a video of my old 560 motor when it was in the sel with just the downpipes on, loud but no way it was that lumpy. I suspect, like Damon, that at least this has an american V8 ,however Id love to see what hes done if its a legit 420.

Listen to this to hear what it should really sound like when a microphone orbits a similar sounding car

YouTube - Holden HSV GTS

In the 420 clip the sound changes little despite the camera moving around the car
