Oh dear god! This is the most pathetic useless app ever! I mean, who in their right minds would actually WANT to use this on a regular basis?

This is just so wrong!

Reminds me of the stupid Active Sound Design by BMW.

The F10 M5 also reproduce the engine’ sound through the car’ audio system. The car lost all the appeal when I heard about it for the first time.

What next? A state of the art 4D simulator instead of a real car?

All the Nano owners who complain of their cars sounding like an auto rickshaw can add a cheap android device with speakers in the back of the car and set it to always on. This way it can sound like a Ferrari or a Lambo :-)

Whatever be it's utility (LOL non-existent ), it has an amazing UI. This should be a good lesson for anyone dabbling with UI on iOS Apps. And pretty good accelerometer-based simulation.

Default Boost your car's exhaust note via a loudspeaker

This equipment is for car owners who cant aford a ferrari but want an exhaust sound similar to the Ferrari's exhaust note. This equipment was featured in this year's Frankfurt Auto show.

The link / URL below will take you to the story on the company (Faurecia SA of France) and the gear which can make your car sound like Ferrari.
