Soundtrack composed by: Christopher J. Denman and Jason P. Rinaldi
Here we have a track that probably wouldn't be out of place on a Kraftwerk album; You could just imagine all the boffins and engineers plodding along and experimenting to the beat of the music.
The track plays when you visit the "Research New Parts" screen which is where you can research new automobile parts such as suspension, cooling, engines, luxury items, etc. (luxury items include things such as radios! WOW!). In order to be an automobile company worth their salt, one must innovate so make sure this department is well funded.
The music was recorded through DOSBOX and consequently this is DOSBOX's emulation of OPL3 I believe, the FM synthesis sound chip used in a lot of old Soundblaster cards.
