The engine impressionist (warning: NSFW language) -- Click above to watch video

Remember Michael Winslow, the guy from the Police Academy movies and The Man of 10,000 Effects? When it comes to cars, this gent could be his follow-up act, having worked out his own technique for imitating a number of powerplants.

There are a selection of engine sounds on offer, including a convincing import four-cylinder, two-stroke motorbike, a V6, and a Weedwacker among others – and what else are you going to do while the xBox loads up a game? You can check out his repertoire in the video after the jump. *WARNING: NSFW language. Thanks for the tip, Duy!

      I'll repeat what one of the members of a local forum posted when this link was posted there:

      Is it me, or did the 'import' sound kinda slow (not too unlike real life, in many cases)? I just about rolled out of my chair when he bounced off the rev limiter (launch control). All of his sounds were quite good and this was definitely good for a laugh.

      I loved that 4-stroke dirtbike, how holarious is that?!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Haha, I got a kick out of that. I want to hear his best V8 impression.

        @Matt (that likes Ford): That could help you to get a job in my Trabi! ;))
        • 5 Years Ago

        Matt (that likes ford): So you'll be posting a video on youtube then?
        • 5 Years Ago
        I may be a dork but I've been perfecting a good SVT Cobra sound all year and I think I've got it down. :P
        • 5 Years Ago

      Notice the import was FWD, he was moving his hand to stop torque steer in the 2nd and 3rd shifts, but not into 4th LOL...

        @IRONFIST2: No one cares about him being (allegedly) scam artist because he can make awesome sounds. ;)
        P.S.: Neither I do know what you are talking about.

        No one cares about Leo because he's a scam artist.

      Considering the fact he was doing that with his FACE... I think he's doing a damn good impression. Even the dirtbikes were good.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Weedwacker... LOL!
      • 5 Years Ago
