Engine Sound. Inside and out
The sound of the engine and exhaust is one of the distinctive features of all Ferraris and cars bearing the Prancing Horse and has always been a fundamental factor in creating the strong bond between the car and its driver and increasing driving pleasure.
This is achieved by paying particular attention to the levels and quality of sound in order to guarantee a comfortable noise level in all situations, with the use of particularly advanced calculation instruments and virtual simulators which worked on the air intake, exhaust and sound-proofing functions. Specifi c devices, called resounders, have been introduced into the air intake system to modulate and emphasize the engine's voice, while the exhaust system is a direct descendant of the F430 Challenge and F430 with high exhaust pipes.
Just like the F430, the Scuderia uses by-pass valves with variable geometry. This system has been specifi cally improved in relation to the acoustic objectives set for the car. The sound of the engine is heard cleary inside the car, becoming particularly powerful and invigorating when you put your foot down, when the intake and exaust sounds become dominant.
