I had to use the Horn today, as I was overtaking a 458, and was shocked how loud it was. A proper Horn.

Anyone else tried it ?

It's only loud when used against 458s!!! There's a receiver in the car that can detect the sound profile of the 458 and automatically increases the intensity of the horn

This is a vid of Jay Leno at Supercar Sunday with his new 12C and you can hear a horn, not sure but RIC can verify if that is what it sounds like

Yes, that sounds pretty loud.

What I did notice is he has rubber like kick plate on the end of the dash, see it when the boy gets in. I have Venture Shield there as it gets booted by everybody.
