Sounds decent. Could be deeper though. I like it.


Sounds like the Ferrari from that French Ferrari Video...

Cars a pimped messed up thing for sure.

Exhuast sounds way to loud for a such a car, with the SL, maybe...

Kind of sounds like a rough Zonda, since they both use the M120. Zonda is tuned with a real exhuast though.

So... I think he just disconnected exhaust downpipe for fun and was messin around with it, temporarily. Thats the only explanation I can think of, because that noise would get incredibly annoying after a while.

I always enjoyed the quiet power of my 560SEL. With the big mufflers on it, it ran well, but you never heard it. Used to surprise the heck out of ricers that thought they could take some old MB boat. May have only been 238 horses, but they were the biggest darn horses I've ever seen. If I had a V12, I would be temped to remove the badges and really have some fun with those who could not spot the other signs of what it was. A V12 with a good flowing exhaust in full song is a wonderful thing. Just not in my MB, please.

It sound like the person just removed the exhaust before the catalytic converter. That V12 sounds like a milk truck with a bad muffler. In other words, it sound like crap. I don't think I'll be doing that to my CL600.

not exactly something to increase torque, horsepower was probably increased a bit.
If you increase hp at any specific RPM, you are increasing tq at that rpm. HP = torque * RPM / 5252
You probably meant to say that he is losing low end torque but increasing hign end hp. However, I'd bet the stock exhaust manifold is restrictive enough not to negatively effect the exhaust velocity by removing the cats and mufflers. He should gain hp and tq in every part of the rpm range.

I find that rather curious, you can't gun an automatic unless you have one foot on the break, even then it would lurch.
It sounded like a car with a standard transmission, specially when he was backing up.

Yep, there is, however if you watch and listen carefully you can hear the guy gunning the engine while he is backing up with the back-up light on. That is a neat trick to do with the transmission in neutral.
I also think that the engine sound and the movement of the car is out of sink at take off. I vote it is fake.

I did notice that, and also the engine was revving pretty good and not moving the vehicle very quickly when he was drivin around.
