New 2010 Camaro SS Sounds Wussy

It’s the damndest thing. The video showing the new Camaro (it is new, right?) “playing” with the new Corette ZR1 on a track has precious little tire squeal, falling silent at :34 to 1:06. (After which sound returns with the ‘Vette’s solo demo.) A track video without engine sound is the automotive equivalent of dickless porn. While there’s no good answer to this mystery– be it a botched recording or marketing mishegos— we now have the start-up sound of a Camaro SS on video. And you’ve got to admit it sounds awesome– for about two seconds. Sorry fans, but there’s something wrong with the burble on this bad boy. Maybe it’s the recording gear, but the SS lacks the basso profondo bellow of the last gen BMW M5 (the best sounding stock V8 engine idle in the history of the world ever). I’m sure our Best and Brightest can set me to rights, or provide the technical reasons behind this omission. But, again, that missing track audio has a Nixon-esque feel to me.

    You know, sometimes I prefer my porn without dick... If you know what I mean.

    First off I was there at Indianapolis where this vid was taken. In the words of FbodFather a.k.a. Scott Settlemire, "The exhausts on these show cars has not been tuned. This is not what they will sound like. It will be much more agressive." I heard the audio of this car at the track. It is amazing.
