National Motor Museum – Audio Cards

The boffins at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu have devised a range of audio greetings cards featuring the engine sounds from twenty-one vehicles in their collection.

Each card features a high quality photograph of the vehicle and details about it are printed on the back of the card. When the cards are opened they play a recording of the vehicle’s engine sound. Many of these recording were made especially for these cards. Although twenty-one vehicles are available, here at OilySmudges, we’re particularly interested in the motorcycles that they’ve chosen to include.

Whilst the pictured machine is equipped with a sidecar, we’re pretty sure this won’t have made a significant contribution to the sound. Listen to the Brough…
