Maserati is considering fake engine noises for diesel models image

The Italian based automaker Maserati is considering fake engine noises for its diesel models and the production version of the Kubang Concept might get this technology.

Even if there is no official word on this subject from the company just yet, the guys at What Car are saying that Maserati will equip its diesel models with an active sound system which will pipe the artificial engine noise through the vehicles’ speakers. According to our source, the Maserati vice president of product development, Roberto Corradi, said that the system could make its debut onto the production version of the Kubang Concept.

Unfortunately we don’t have any mode info on the subject but as a quick reminder the Maserati Kubang Concept was officially presented to the public, in a world debut, back in September 2011, during the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Maserati Kubang Concept is actually based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the luxurious crossover is being powered by a 3.0 liter Pentastar V6 engine, which is developing a total output of 350 horsepower, but the road going version is expected to use a larger 3.9 liter V8 unit which will be developed by Ferrari. The final production version of the Kubang Concept might be presented in 2014, at the Detroit Motor Show.
