NFSUnlimited has posted an interview with Need for Speed Most Wanted senior audio director Charles Deenen, about behind the scenes of sound recording.
NFSUnlimited: "How many cars did you use to record the sounds and which cars are they?"
Charles Deenen: "We recorded approx 40 cars for Most Wanted, and also used a bunch which were recorded for NFSU1 or NfSU2 (for NFSU2, we recorded approx 40-45 cars). Often we start recording cars before the licenses are through, so we sometimes end up recording cars which won't get used. Also, sometimes a car might sound good in real life, but simply doesn't translate to the game, in which case it's a toss-out."
