Mercedes engines will be louder with the new Emotion Start featureDecember 1, 2019
Representatives of the German automaker spoke about the new Emotion Start function, with which you can make your engine start even louder than before. This technology will be in all new models of the sports brand Mercedes-AMG.
Two years ago, Ford introduced one interesting feature for its Mustang sports car – it was called Good Neighborhood Mode, and its essence was to muffle the real sound of a powerful V8 gasoline engine. Why was this necessary? Then, so as not to disturb anyone with a very loud engine roar.
Well, the German brand Mercedes-AMG implements the inverse function in its high-performance models. Their technology, called Emotion Start, allows you to make the engine immediately start with a very loud sound.
Here’s what the automaker’s representatives themselves say about it: “So, how does it work? It is pretty simple, actually. All you have to do is press and hold the gear lever before pressing the start / stop button. When the Emotion Start function is activated, the engine starts with all exhaust valves open. The initial engine speed will also be slightly higher, reaching the level of 2100 rpm (instead of the usual 1800 rpm).
As a result, your AMG will be much louder and will probably evoke vivid emotions, as if you had a powerful hypercar. It can also cause not the most positive emotions in your neighbors, so be sure to use this function only when the sun has already risen. ”
