Never seen the inside of a room like this that car makers use, just seeing the AMG GT roll in in the beginning is epic. Good to see they go to measures like this to ensure it sound exactly how they want it to.

It is a pretty intense testing room. While meeting regulations is definitely a big part of this, I do think that companies spend a good amount of time perfecting their exhaust note, especially on a car that is close to the top of the lineup like the AMG GT.

As far as video's go, this is probably one of the best that let you really hear how that V8 sounds without anything else to take away from the experience.

That room is crazy. i didn't even know something like that exists. it seems like it is a holodeck or some type of bunker. I'm curious to know more about the facility. Do you think Mercedes-Benz owns it, or do they just rent it out and it has other uses as well?

tough to say if it's a facility they own or space and service they rented in order to go about this testing.

you also do need to consider how much work is involved with making a vehicle and then to continuously improve and refine, that in mind does give power to the idea that it's theirs.

Didn't notice the AMG logo on their shirts before.
Good point.

I suppose it would make sense for Mercedes-AMG to have a facility like this all to themselves for developing their products. Regardless of who owns it, it is really cool that a room like this exists.

Do you think that auto companies try to steal from each other ever? I remember hearing that someone approached Pepsi with Coke's recipe and Pepsi turned them in to the government. I imagine similar stuff could happen in the auto industry (except for China who copies and steals everything.)
