It sounds bizarre but I want to try it.

    Lol pumping in the V8 sound into a vehicle without one is a thing?

    What kind of insecure person would use this “feature?”

    “Damn, Tony, that thing got a V8?”

    “Nope but it sure sounds like it!”

      The reviewer in this article would be one of those people. He got excited by the sound of revving the engine and hearing the result of shifting gears - and he knew it was just an audio effects track. But, also, have you seen (or listened to) men (it’s always men) who drone on about their V8 full size pick up trucks? It’s absolutely a thing. Don’t get me wrong - I like the look of my truck - but I’d be just as happy with an electric F150 that threw a flat 600 ft-lbs of torque and was dead silent. I just want the acceleration and cargo capacity on mountain interstates.
