Video: Kid does perfect VTEC engine impersonation

Some people might find this dude’s talent particularly weird with the whole blowing through a plastic tube gimmick while making inaudible sounds. Well, these people don’t know any better.

As far as we’re concerned – and by ‘we’, we mean all those familiar with the symphonic music he’s making – we can’t get enough of it.

Listen to it more intently and you’ll realize that he’s got a knack for mimicking the sound of a Honda VTEC engine, down to the smallest of details like the turbo bypass, the gear changes, and that unmistakable VTEC engine roar.

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 full bio

That is actually awesome. Well, people are very talented that they can do a lot of stuffs. Some can make music like a beat box and I guess in this case, one more talent has been added, the imitation of the sound of an engine. When you close your eyes you’d actually enjoy the sounds.

Dang! That was an amazing sound! Honestly he got the true sound even on the smallest detail. KUDOS to him... I really like what he did on the Turbo drift of a Vtec engine.
