The Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team has given Formula One fans around the globe a unique insight into the future today

To mark the team's new status as a YouTube partner for the creation and broadcast of exclusive video content about the Silver Arrows team, Mercedes AMG Petronas has offered fans the first taste of how the new 2014 Power Units will sound out on track.

The audio recording of the turbocharged V6 unit was conducted using a development engine at Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP) in Brixworth, UK.

This simulated lap of the Monza circuit - the definitive test of any Formula One powerplant - was then synced to a lap of the circuit at the team's Driver-in-the-Loop simulator at team HQ in Brackley, UK.

The result is the most accurate impression so far of how the new Power Units will sound in 2014, with a maximum rev limit of 15,000 rpm and a single turbocharger spinning at speeds of up to 125,000 rpm.
