How to Make a Car Noise With a Can

November 21, 2023

The sound of a V10 engine from a Lamborghini or any other car is undoubtedly one of the most spine-tingling sounds you can hear in a vehicle. However, replicating this sound at home can be difficult. However, a new tutorial on YouTube has shown that this can be easily achieved using a soda or beer can and your voice and tongue.

Before starting, make sure that the can has been cleaned thoroughly and has a clean metal tab. This is important to prevent injury to your lips and tongue. Once you have a clean can, place it on a flat surface and remove the metallic open. You should then apply a little bit of pressure on the can to inflate it and pinch it properly. This will help your voice to vibrate the can and amplify it.

Once you have a good grip on the can, begin to speak in a high-pitched tone that is more aggressive than normal. This will cause the can to generate a growling sound. The frequency of the noise that is generated can also be changed by bending the can up and down.

CAN stands for Controller Area Network and is a data bus that uses the ISO 11898-2 physical layer. It can operate at up to 1 Mbit/s. It is used by many different manufacturers and can be found in a wide variety of vehicles. It is also commonly used at schools and universities to send files and information to different departments or buildings far quicker than if the file were sent over a public Internet connection.
