The seventh-generation Ford Mustang might come with the option to be revved without needing a driver.
Ford has patented the concept to allow drivers to rev their engine with just their key fob or mobile phone.
It’s a simple idea but definitely not a necessary one. In fact, the only point to it is simply to show off how loud your new Mustang is (if you get the V8, of course).
The concept is not exactly what you would imagine a traditionalist manufacturer like Ford to dream up. It has more Tesla vibes than anything, given its oddness.
Still, if it happens, undoubtedly, Ford owners will take great joy in flaunting their Coyote V8 or something similar with the push of a button.
You can even programme it to play different rev notes in a melody, meaning you could get something capable of this:
It’s not just the Mustang that would get the technology either. The patent describes how the gimmick would work with a hybrid or EV.
Fake noise is the answer.
But not necessarily fake engine noise, but also wind turbine sounds or a flux capacitor sound (from Back to the Future).
But, without a doubt, the best part of this tech is, just think how easy it would be to find your car in a packed car park?
