How are racing video games able to replicate all those car sounds? | Video

How do racing games replicate so many unique engine sounds?

Well, it's about as simple as you might imagine: By strapping a bunch of microphones to the cars and then driving them around in circles for a bit.

I want a racing game where all the sounds are dubbed by Michael Winslow.
