Click above to watch the Turbo Whistler in action

Have you ever wanted your car to sound turbocharged without having any of the functional benefits? Yeah, neither have we, but apparently someone thought it was a good idea to make such a product. Knowing some of the things people put on their cars, we have no doubt it will find a few buyers too. Named the Turbo Whistler, this aluminum device clamps onto your tailpipe (no welding or drilling necessary!) and emits a sound similar (a term used very loosely in this case) to the whistle of a turbocharger under throttle. The company's web site claims that it will trick all of your friends into thinking your vehicle is benefiting from forced induction. Our guess is that if they don't know the difference, they will also believe you when you tell them your Honda Accord is also a "10-second car." Watch the Turbo Whistler in action in the video after the jump.

      Mmm... I could use one of these on the Ninja 250... It would be wrong on a few levels.

      This isn't quite as bad as the stick on sunroof I've seen on Ebay before. It's something that just sticks to the outside roof of your car, making everyone else THINK you have a sunroof.

      Geez, the things stupid people will spend their money on...

      10-second car. To 60, that is.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I hope that's to 60' otherwise it's slow but not nearly slow enough to be funny.
      • 5 Years Ago
      No.

        I totally forgot about that video! "It's like a alarm clock, WOOO WOO"

        I would rank you up but you're already at 3 stars. That is definitely one of my top 5 favorite YouTube videos of all time

        Whitey always trying to keep a brotha down, and that is made clear again by Bubb Rubb and Lil Sis not being the most watched video in history on YouTube. Instead, yup, you guessed it, some white guy dancing is the #1 video still.

        Woooooowooooooooooooo

        Bubb Rubb and Lil' Sis!

        YO DAWG!!! We heard you like turbos, so we put a turbo on your turbo, so you can whistle while you whistle.
        • 5 Years Ago

      This is no less stupid than those paint and stick fake hood scoops I see on 80% of all pickup trucks and Pontiac Grand Ams / Grand Prix around here. I hate non functional crap stuck all over cars for "customization's" sake, especially when it doesn't even look good.
