This British big cat takes a big gasp of air and lets out a barbaric roar as it sends itself down our track spluttering as it goes with plenty of exhaust crackles, pops and gurgles. This car is a fantastic dramatic addition to any growing sound library.
With separate onboard engine recordings capturing aspects of the engine supercharger whine, belt noise, rotation and timing sounds. Exhaust recordings capturing all of the spluttering pipes. Last but not least the interior cabin perspective recordings in surround for internal audio of the car featuring many of the interior devices and gadget beeps boops and other computer UI noises.
The car is a Jaguar F-Type SVR Supercharged 5.0L V8 engine with an impressive 567bhp under the bonnet boasting a 0-60 speed time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. With a spluttering exhaust system with the valves engaged to open from 1000RPM instead of the standard noise reduced 4000RPM this car is giving its best performance.
Approaching this car recording session like we always do, we aimed to capture all the sonic character this car has to offer.
With a series of manoeuvres from slow to fast driving while switching gears. We also captured exterior perspective recordings of drive ins and drive offs, passbys and door shuts.
With a fully rigged setup producing isolated onboard recordings of engine, exhaust, interior and two static external trackside perspectives, all recordings have been timecode jam synced for DAW session reconstruction – we have taken all aspects from pre to post production into consideration.
