Ferrari 458 Italia – V8


Engine: V8




This car sounds typical of any Ferrari with a higher toned whine. Having a very precise and tuned sounding engine with an extremely complimentary exhaust which creates a whirlwind of sound as this Italian stallion rushes around our track. Equipped with rasping pipes producing plenty of gurgles and burbles, the Ferrari 458 Italia is a classic sounding machine and is perfect for any Italian mid-engined V8 cars.

The car itself is a Ferrari 458 Italia 4.5L Type F136 V8 fitted with a custom Quicksilver exhaust system. This car has a bhp of 562bhp with a 0-60 speed of 3.4s. We pushed this car to 180mph on the track and really opened it up to show its performance capabilities.

Approaching this car recording session like we always do, we aimed to capture all the characteristic sounds this car has to offer. With a fully rigged setup we placed microphones in and around the engine bay, around the exhaust and a 5.1 surround sound mic placed in the interior of the car suspended ensuring no rumble or travel noise. We had the driver performing a series of manoeuvres from slow to fast driving while switching gears. Especially the exterior perspective recordings of drive ins and drive offs, pass bys and door shuts.

Recording from different perspectives we have produced isolated onboard recordings of engine, exhaust, interior and two static external trackside positions. We have taken all aspects from pre to post production into consideration by ensuring all audio recordings are timecode jam synced for DAW session reconstruction.
