    Gotta admit I love that Jag noise. Sounds like a spaceship. I can already imagine my nerdy self saying something like "Engaging Hyperdrive" and then giggling like a little kid when it sprints off the line.

    “Bitch-ass modern digital indicator” 😂😂 Apart from me referencing “foul language” and finding it funny which some people might view as a form of “cheap” humor. Which I don’t think it is. I love how creative, witty and informative your work is. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 10/10 always

    What happen to look both sides of the road before crossing? Really, the government is making car makers add fake noises to electric vehicles?, that's sad and frightening at the same time.

    That's the main reason i don't like the Rimac C_Two...it's got like no sound. The tech is impressive, the speed and handling is awesome, but it's not fun to drive due to the fully electric motor not making any sounds

    Harley's LiveWire changed the bevel gear from helical to spur to be loud. Sounds like a TIE fighter from Star Wars.

    My 2013 Focus ST has a “sound symposer” that’s actually super cool. Basically a tube with a valve that goes into the firewall that lets engine sound in when you get on the gas. It’s ridiculous but it’s so satisfying. Edit: Wrote that comment before he mentioned it by name. Oops.

    A lot of these american youtube tv channels are paid shills. In europe people dont care to tell you youre car is shit. Like the old top gear. Dodge refused to let brittish top gear get cars loaned out because they always gave bad reviews.

    In europe people dont complain if the car is loud. This is an American thing. Fuck americans let them keep their fake shit and give the rest of the world the real thing.

    This is why when we finally have spacecraft as a commercial thing, they will make artificial sounds of the engine and passing ships so people feel more comfortable in space.

    Nope I replace my whole exhaust so I know it's the real sound. When I heard them say in the new cars it's pumped in the cabin it was a deal breaker.

    What a lot of people don't know is the Lexus LFA uses strategically placed speakers to make the car sound as good as it does.

    I actually like both experiences. Raw exhaust sounds of a 5, V6, V8, V10 or V12 are often memorable. I also can enjoy the silent running of EVs through the country side. Noisy cars at night are annoying, and often border juvenile delinquency. On the flip side of the equation, on a bright sunny Saturday or evening cruising the boulevard in a EV is just lame. EVs just lack personality and suppress any egos along with its noise cancellation tech. I'll take both experiences. Hold the artificial enhancement. I'm not one dimensional. 🤖

    I'm ok with physical chambers into the cabin and even the computer tweaking the engine to produce a better exhaust note, but definitely hate any kind of electronically 'reproduced' sound from speakers or something foreign to the physical car.
