Question app that mimics exotic engine sounds through car speakers

My wife is not a "car guy" but she puts up with my obsession and all of our garage space occupied by cars that get driven less 1000 miles per year. She drives a Nissan Rouge. This SUV coupled with a CVT is about the most mundane form of transportation every invented.

I'd love to take my phone get it on her blue tooth and play exotic/muscle car exhaust noise through her speakers while I tell her I modded her exhaust. Is there such a thing? Ones that I've seen don't play the tone in sync to the RPMs of the motor. Maybe i'm dreaming that this is even possible as I have no idea how blue tooth would transmit engine RPM to an app.

I could hide in the back seat and make some noises in sync with the engine rpms?

Ah, Like BMW Active Sound. Fake engine noise coming out through the speakers. I think it's present on the M4, M5 and i8

The i8, BMW's new hybrid sports car, generates some of that sound without having that classic engine. The i8 has an electric motor and turbo-charged three-cylinder engine. Buchko says they are powerful and energy efficient, but do not generate quite the same rumble inside the car. So, BMW plays some engine noise through the speakers.

“What you're getting,” Buchko says, “is pre-recorded engine sound that is matched exactly to a car's RPMs.”

And Audi S4... If they pipe it through your speakers why can't you turn it up (not what I'm after with this post).

"According to the company, Vroom! The Car App is more than just a paid app that makes noises mimicking stuff like a 12-cylinder Ferrari. They say it detects when you accelerate or take a corner or hit a bump to adapt the noise accordingly. "

The new i8 apparently has a speaker in its fake second exhaust to make the exhaust sound better from the outside.

As to the original question, this one connects to an OBD reader to match sounds to RPM: SoundRacer

I understand why they did it, it just still rubs me the wrong way. Fake exhaust note is a fake exhaust note. On a car costing 150k it makes it even more ridiculous.
