The new Chevrolet Corvette has a trick exhaust system that muffles the exhaust note when the electronically controlled valve flaps inside it are closed, and let's the V8 roar when they're open. The system works its mysterious magic depending on the drive mode and the engine's rpm. Here, Patrick Herrmann, Technical Manager of Chevrolet Europe, attempts to show us what's actually going on in the Stingray's exhaust system to give it its dynamic sound.

The informational video does a pretty good job of explaining the switchable exhaust system and compares it to a similar aftermarket exhaust system for Harley-Davidson motorcycles made by Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde. We know, the comparison seems kind of random, but we enjoy hearing the Harley, too. Watch the video below and learn something new today.
