Ford Mustang Gets Busted For Fake Engine Sounds

Ford's not the first or only car maker using parlor tricks (BMW, Lexus, Volkswagen*) to augment engine sound. With the direction AMG's engines are headed, won't be surprised if it's a "feature" in a the future R173.

And then there certain people like the sergeant who make sure their car sounds the way they want without the addition of pre-recorded sound!
