True, there are some ways to make your car's engine sound more sonorous, but there's really so much you can do for example to a Chevy Aveo or a Toyota Prius.
Furthermore, with a starting price of 99 cents, 2XCL Games' new XLR8 (get it; accelerate) sounds like a sweet bargain compared to the cost(s) of an actual mechanical component.
The XLR8 is an app available for Apple's iPhone and iPad as well as Android phones and tablets that promises to make your vehicle sound like an exotic Italian supercar, a muscle car or even a racing model.
"Once secured inside your vehicle, XLR8 uses the accelerometers of your device to realistically respond to acceleration, braking and cornering forces," explains the software provider. "It supports both cabled and wireless Bluetooth audio connections to your car stereo."
2XCL Games says that the sounds have been recorded from real life cars and that you can adjust the various settings.
Currently, there are six available car sounds to choose from including the Chevrolet Camaro V8, the Lamborghini Gallardo V10, the Ferrari 458 Italia V8, a NASCAR V8 racer and a Ford GT40 V8.
The $0.99 pack gets you one car with 2XCL Games charging from $0.99 to $2.99 for additional sounds while also offering a complete package for $4.99.
