Video: 2016 is the year of louder, meaner Formula 1 cars. And it sounds like Mercedes’ W07 Hybrid might just be the meanest of them all.
This year, regulations on tailpipes were eased by the Formula 1 technical committee, addressing the complaints of many fans that 2015’s petrol-electric hybrid 1.6-litre turbocharged V6s were a little lacklustre in the sound department. Mercedes isn’t the only marque to release an aural demonstration of its new engine and exhaust setup, though — McLaren Honda and Ferrari have both done the same.
