Borla Exhaust has been making cars louder since 1979 with its custom parts, but it’s getting tougher these days.
There are still a lot of powerful cars that need somewhere to transport the burning gases, but this is not the case with the increasing number of electrical performance models Fill the galleries.
However, Borla isn’t ready to go quietly into the battery-powered night, so he’s designed an exhaust system for electric cars.
Not one blowing hot air, but an external amplifier that plays a digital reproduction of the original engine sounds synchronized with the car’s speed.
It was first shown for the Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV and shown at the SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas before deliveries began.
The product began as a collaboration with popular Mustang tuner Shelby American, who began selling modified versions of the Mach-E and wanted some sounds to go along with it.
Mach-E already delivers Synthetic-style engine noise Yet the V8 can be pumped into the cabin, but it can’t be heard from outside.
The Borla Active Performance System certainly can, and it doesn’t look like another Mustang.
While Borla designed a track Based on Shelby GT500has also sampled several Chevrolet products, including the current Corvette, and owners can switch between them using a connected app.
The final price has not been announced, but it is expected to be available before the end of the year.
Borla isn’t the only entity in the muscle car world worried about the possibility of muscle car exhaust going extinct.
Dodge has developed a new all-electric powertrain solution for the upcoming Daytona SRT.
The car is fitted with something Dodge calls a phratzonic chambered exhaust, which acts like a pipe member to pump air through a series of tubes to create an exhaust-like tone that can reach 126 decibels, and it’s as loud as the brand’s Stream Hellcat V8 supercharged engine.
