You may be thinking that you’ll never get over the loss of the naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter engine that was previously the backbone of the AMG fleet. But, get over it, the downsized turbo is the way of the future.

The 4-liter, twin-turbo V8 will make output 500 hp and power the all new AMG GT as well as the C63. But what does the twin-turbo sound like, does it give you the chills the way the old engine did?  The three sound files below and the first look video give a good sense of it.
