There have been many unique renditions of The Star-Spangled Banner throughout the years, including Whitney Houston's Super Bowl performance and Jimi Hendrix's incredible guitar solo, and now Infiniti has created its own memorable version of America's national anthem... using a Red Bull Racing F1 show car.

Now don't get too excited. The feet of Sebastian Vettel or Mark Webber are not responsible for said performance as it appears that the engine revs are being controlled using a laptop computer. In no way does that make the feat any less impressive, though. With the Statue of Liberty and New York City skyline as a backdrop, the car's roaring engine has a tone that would give William Hung and Roseanne Barr a run for their money, but it belts out the high notes as only an automotive enthusiast could appreciate.

Scroll down to witness the engine-revving awesomeness yourself.

      Remember Carlos Ghosn firing thousands of Nissan employees recently. This is where they used the budget.

      I imagine this would be an awesome way to start an Election Day Sale's event for Infiniti. I can even imagine the commercial - Classic Version starts with the american flag and footage of the Statue of Liberty and NYC backdrop Cut scene to image of Red Bull F1 car and exhaust version picking up where the classic version left off Flash back to classic version with G37 convertible driving over some pretty landscape Cut back to F1 Car ripping it around the "Ring" (back to F1 version of song) Flash back to G37 sedan rounding some bend in a nondescript suburban town Cut back to F1 car pulling away with exhaust flashing fire (back to F1 version) Flash to QX56 going over some hill looking all SUV-esqe. (back to normal version) ** Fade Out ** Then go to the standard Infiniti Black background with symbol and "Inspired Performance" 30 seconds just flew by

      Here's a nifty idea that I just thought of....rather than having a choir or singer sing the national anthem of each country at each f1 round, get all the f1 cars on the grid to play the national anthem. hahaha awesome idea right?!

      Red Bull Racing (Teams full name) has absolutely nothing to do with Infiniti other than receiving a check and taping their logo & name to the car.

        Red bull uses Renault engines. Now Carlos Ghosn owns Nissan-Renault. Infiniti is owned by Ghosn's Nissan-Renault. Therefore the engine used in the Red Bull Renault team has a lot to do with Infiniti-Nissan-Renault.

        Wow Krusti, following the corporate structure and you will have gained much needed knowledge, so you dont look like an idiot.

          No need to follow any kind of structure. You would not call Force India Mercedes just because their engines come from MB... Or Toro Rosso (RB:s junior team in Formula 1) a Ferrari, because they buy their engines from Ferrari just like RB buys theirs from Renault. Saying RB uses infiniti technology or anything to that effect is just plain wrong.

        Why, the north won, not the south.

        I think the Statue of Liberty is on Liberty Island which is located in New York.

          Had you guys won that sailing race in 1674, it would have been. But then Lady Liberty would need bigger hair.

      I am sorry Infiniti/Red Bull,but this has been done before,by a car that had a repertory of 3 tunes. In 2006,the British Williams Racing team operating Renault engined F1 cars,tuned the engines to play,Queens "We are the Champions" (as they were that season) The French National Anthem "Le Marseillaise" and the British N.A. "God Save the Queen".I would call that being a little late on the scene,wouldn't you?

        Williams were not the F1 Constructors Champs in 2006. That would be the factory Renalt works (at that time) team that won with Alonso behind the wheel. I would call that not knowing what you're talking about, wouldn't you?

        Who cares if it has been done before. Still awesome and a great tune to mark the greatest country to date.

      They should have recordings of each country's anthem for the constructors that win each race. Renault playing La Marseilleise, Cosworth playing God Save the Queen, etc.

        Cosworth is not a constructor, but an engine supplier... and one that is not very competitive.
