I would go for either Richard Wagner's Ride of the Valkyrie, or Johnny Cash's Ghost riders in the Sky

My 2012 Plug-in Prius already does this. It is a strange, UFO-like noise :-). I believe all current Prius models have it.

Seems to me the cheapest solution is to glue old playing cards to the tire rims so that they smack something as the wheel turns. A variation of this worked on my bike when I was a kid. ...although I would still run into people occasionally ;-)

Yes, but only if you have a subwoofer in the back that prompts your car to do a wheelie... ; )

It's about time to implement the Jetson noise for the Jetson's style levitating vehicles.

Will there be an exemption if you drive with the car stereo turned up really loud?

I would choose the sound of ocean waves pounding on rocks.

Bert, you're absolutely correct. And re-reading the NHTSA reduction estimate quote, they see the reduction over the life of the various models... which ends up being a very small number on a year-by-year basis.
