The Merc engine at pace

Saturday 25-January-2014 09:11

Although fans will have to wait until Tuesday to hear it during testing, Mercedes have released a clip of their V6 engine in action.

On Friday Nico Rosberg put in the laps at the Silverstone circuit during a 'promotional' day in his 2014 car, the W05.

It was the German's first taste of the new 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 engine and Merc took the opportunity to record the sound.

Although different to the roar of the last year's V8s, fans will be encourage to hear that the new engine by no means sounds like mom's old sewing machine.
