AMG Says Next-Gen Sports Cars Will Be Less Noisy

There is your sign....

Europe says, “Shhh!”
Sometime soon, whether you slip into your new Mercedes-AMG or spot one cruising past, it may sound a bit different – at least from the outside. Thanks to new European regulations, exhaust notes are getting quieter, and not even AMG’s burly performance cars, nor its competitors, can avoid them. And that involves AMG cars outside Europe, too.

In an interview with Motoring, Bastian Bogenschutz, Mercedes-AMG’s head of product planning for compact cars, told the publication all markets are affected by Europe’s legislative changes. It’s too expensive to design specific exhausts for each individual market. That includes the U.S., which means AMG’s other means of auditory delivery will have to suffice. The regulations are also getting more stringent about every two years, which further complicates the problem.

Two of the first vehicles these new regulations are quieting is the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A 45 S and 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S, which also happen to pack what Mercedes calls the world’s most powerful four-cylinder engine. European regulators don’t want you to hear it. However, thanks to technology, and the dissatisfaction of some, AMG is countering the new regulations by enhancing the in-cabin exhaust note. The company added the AMG pure performance sound, which takes the real exhaust sound and moves it inside.

In-car audio systems mimicking exhaust and engine noises aren’t new, as are other creative ways to enhance the driving experience. And it’s not an ideal solution either, but it’s better than nothing. While European regulations will quiet future AMG vehicles, the robust aftermarket scene should provide plenty of solutions to rectify the quietness. Sound is a visceral part of the driving experience, and nothing beats a series of loud pops, burbles, and wails from the a stellar exhaust system. But times are changing, which means there are new regulations automakers have to follow.

Idiotic. Aftermarket exhaust makers like Capristo and Armytrix are already salivating...

The UK has already announced that they are currently piloting duel function Speed Cameras that also have microphones to detect too-loud vehicles.

For the time being this will be used just to send advisory letters to the vehicle owner that they exceed noise regulations, but the implication is that in the future it will be used to regulate and punish.

It sounds like it is the ridiculous modded cars being targeted (whose sole function seems to be a loud exhaust and not much power behind it) but the volume of these cars means that I wouldn't want them driving up my street either while I am trying to watch Stranger Things.

A satisfying sound doesn't have to be loud.

We'll be going back to childhood.

There are idiots who irritate the locals with excessively loud zorsts that they continually rev.

But the AMG zorst is not that loud (certainly on the 171 55)
otherwise, why do so many spend money on x pipes, cat delete, replacement systems.


Boom box ready with recording of Manx classic races.

Wait until they get hundreds of complaints from Angry of Mayfair types.

My Tesla/yaris etc is silent, why did I get this warning?
I was on a moped!
My tractor sounds like every other tractor, why me?

I had zorsts, but the doctor gave me some salve to get rid of them. Try the new chewables.

The end is nigh! They want electric cars to make noise and petrol to be quiet. Beam me up Scottie I've had enough!

And how about scooters and helicopters? Round here 100cc bikes are far noisier than my 5437!. I get choppers with 2 passengers flying over my house that are 10x noisier than aircraft carrying 600! Stick that in your EU gotnothingelsetodomp pipe and smoke it!
