Yes, perception isn’t always reality. And when nobody’s the wiser, you can get away with just about anything. Ignorance is bliss, so they say.
Clichés aside, a lot of us don’t have the wherewithal – or deep pockets – to buy our own supercar. But even if the best we can afford are the Corollas and Civics of the world, it doesn’t mean that these cars can’t sound like V8 monsters.
Thanks to a dandy new iPod app called Instant Supercar, which you can purchase for a measly $2.99, your nice little joyride of a vehicle can sound like a Nissan GT-R or even a Bugatti Veyron without even having to spend more than the price of a Burger King Whopper. The Instant Supercar uses an accelerometer that channels in the sound of those high-priced powerhouses, making them sound exactly like them.
At the very least, it should be good to fool a couple of people who don’t know any better. But even if you do get caught with your pants down, you won’t need to sweat the three bucks you spent to make your ride sound a lot more powerful than it should be.
