New EVs are nearly silent, and soon the sound of a V8 or V12 powerplant may be just a thing of the past. With governments pushing to ban internal combustion engines, automakers are optimizing the production of battery-powered systems, which are already gaining traction on our roads. After all, in many city centers diesel cars are already banned, while “green” ones are gaining ground, which have little to envy in terms of performance and speed. However the sound it is something that cannot be equalled.

The news was given by the specialized site Car Buzz which talks about a patent for a device to amplify the sound of the electric propulsion unit and reproduce it from the rear of the vehicle. A truly innovative system capable of exploiting and amplifying the resonance frequencies of the engine and transmission according to the driving speed. Ferrari knows how important the sound produced by its supercars is for its brand, as explicitly confirmed by the CEO. Benedict Vignaconsidering it one of the “essential elements that characterize a Ferrari”.
Each Ferrari engine has its own distinctive sound and purpose Horse house is that future electric models also have their own specific sound.
