Mercedes-AMG & Linkin Park Join Forces

The Mercedes-AMG Linkin Park Collaboration that no one ever asked for is here.

Mercedes-AMG are working with Linkin Park to create the soundtrack for future Mercedes-AMG performance cars.

Read that sentence one more time and let it sink in.

Electric cars are the future- we already knew that. Increasingly stringent emission regulations mean that Mercedes-AMG engines, famous for large displacement, brutal acceleration, and ear shattering sound, will soon be replaced by faster and significantly quieter electric vehicles.

Don’t expect to see Mercedes-AMG start churning out fully electric performance vehicles overnight. The Mercedes-AMG electrification process will be a slow transition starting with PHEV technology that will be mated to traditional combustion engines- a trend that will kick off with the ballistic Mercedes-AMG Project One.

The dedicated EV sound team at Mercedes-AMG are yet to decide if the sound will resemble that of traditional combustion engines or whether they will take on an electrified sound more befitting of their engine.
