2014 Mercedes AMG Petronas at 15000rpm (w/video)

Nothing beats the acoustics of a Formula 1 engine

Rounding out Friday is this impressive exhaust note from the 2014 Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 car. The Silver Arrows team partnered with YouTube and will be broadcasting more unique content like this about about the team. That is music to the ears of many F1 fans.

The audio recording is of the turbocharged V6 development engine at Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP), in Brixworth, UK. It offers insight into what the engine that has a rev limit of 15000rpm, will sound like in the 2014 cars.

The video shows two Pirelli P-Zero tires guiding the viewer through the Monza circuit, which was then synced to a lap of the circuit at the team's Driver-in-the-Loop simulator, located at the headquarters in Brackley, UK.

Be sure to watch the video shown above.
