he Fourth of July may have passed, but that hasn't stopped the Infiniti Red Bull F1 team from doing something pretty cool with one of the team's race cars.
Using a laptop to control the engine's revs, engineers were able to make the motor "sing" the "Star-Spangled Banner" while the car was parked in the shadow of New York City's skyline.
While we think it would be cooler if a driver used fancy footwork to perform the song, we have to admit that the performance isn't half-bad. And unlike with human singers, the chances of the song being butchered are reduced.
