There’s something to be said about talent that people just can’t learn. It’s innate to a person, and when you’re lucky enough to possess a unique talent, you try to harness it and improve on it as much as you can.

This particular dude has a pretty unique talent. First of all, it’s not his guitar-playing we’re talking about, although we have to admit, he can handle a Gibson X-Plorer just about as good as anyone we’ve seen and heard in quite some time.

His unique talent is that he can use his electric guitar and simulate the sound of the Fernando Alonso-driven Ferrari F10 Formula One car from the engine-roaring acceleration down to the braking and gear-shifting. To illustrate exactly how precise his music is, he even has a video of the racing sequence in which Alonso’s car is completely in sync with the sounds of the Gibson X-Plorer.

Check it out and be amazed.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Likewise! Does the ordinary guitar could make this kind of sound?

haha. Amazing! He really imitate the sound of Formula One..just by listening to it. I could imagine the cars on their maximum speed and make it way on the road!

He’s talented and I must say that the sound is very clear and harmonious. Are there any other versions of videos aside from this one? Please post it here!

Amazing, but I must say that the VTECH human engine impersonator is way better than the guitar man.
