Makes a noise that is almost as dirty as GT's mum.

    The Jag is lovely, I've looked at the F Type coupes outside my local dealership. A bloke visited one of the houses in our culdesac in and F Type R this evening and gave it a good bootful of revs, it sounded delicious.

    Too bad Jags are only driven by old men who play golf :-)

    One of the big cheeses at work has a Jag F type R and a Mercedes SLS63. Both make very rude noises but the jag is slightly naughtier.
    He is afflicted with ginger hair though so probably still can't get laid even with the cars and money.

    Its fake. The popping and banking on downshifts is designed into the map in the ECU.
    Since cars evolved from running carbs to computer controlled fuel injection they just wont do that.
    Its a bit like the synthetic engine noise BMW plays into the cabin of some of the M cars.

    The popping sounds on an idling V8 is the best sort of pop. You can hear just how good it sounds in the link i posted above.

    Tell that to my (correctly mapped) StripleR, as it's barking through downshifts and popping on the overrun through it's Arrow race system. Shame you can't do killshift backfires with FI systems though, and they'll never match the seamless analogue fuel delivery of a well set up bank of CV carbs (although that's not an issue in a car when you've got all that weight and drivetrain losses to dampen out the snatchy response).

    Correct.

    A sweeping statement and, consequently, wrong. There are plenty of tuned engines, running injection, that pop like m**********rs. Annoyingly so, in some/many cases.

    Getting the car to pop and fart whilst maintaining emissions standards, however - now, there's a trick, and in the Jags case, it took the poor b*****d about 3 months to sort. Needlessly so, in my book. But I doubt I'm their target market. :lol:

    Cant you go down the redneck route to get popping? Drill a hole in your exhaust, thread it, screw a spark plug in, wire it up so you can just push a button to ignite the spark plug, and burn any unburnt fuel coming through the exhaust.

    And take it a step further with getting a remap to get your engine to overfuel slightly?

    Strap on a turbo and get anti-lag! That will do it :-)

    Yup.. the new clio can now make GT-R noises come through the car speakers in time with the engine revs using the "soundgenerator".

    Its so censored .

    Not as terrible as the sun burn on a ginger who regularly has to visit the middle east.

    I really wish we could just tell the tree huggers to f**k off. With large capacity bikes it's now almost impossible to get them through EU emmissions homologation tests without stupid wanky ride-by-wire throttles ("hello, I'm Mr ECU, and even though you're telling me you want 100% throttle, I'm only going to let you have 60% right now"...), and on some (notably big KTMs) it's virtually essential to have a remap to get them properly rideable. Thankfully emmissions aren't part of MOT testing (yet...), so you can fit a proper exhaust, bin the catalytic converter, get a custom remap, switch off the O2 sensor, secondary air injection and all that hippy censored and have the engine that the designers wanted you to have, without having to worry about conforming to EU shite.

    I remember seeing that on Top Gear, it was indeed massively censored . :lol:

    I've driven a GT-R, it was rather nice.

    Clearly it's not 'fake' as it's fuel burning in the exhaust, it's not fake like the Clio's sounds, it may be contrived, but that isn't the same thing!

    Car manufacturers have been doing stuff like this for years, the many cars have a small tube from airbox to cabin so you can hear more engine noise (Mini Cooper S with Supercharger noise) and many have pops and bangs on lift off (MCS again) and all exhausts designed have been designed to emit a noise relative to what customers of the marque expect.....better than being totally characterless!
