Make Your Own Tinie Tempah and E 63 AMG Mashup

On Monday we were asking you what AMG model was being revved in a short Youtube video, while also trying to decipher the sound being heard by ourselves.

We were half right, it was a Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG, even though then we were more inclined towards the G 63 AMG. Still, we managed to guess that it was an M157 V8, which should count for something, right?

Anyway, the short video was uploaded by Mercedes-Benz UK, and only today we learned that it was in fact a teaser to an online and TV campaign which will advertise the E 63 AMG in a rather unusual matter.

In short, it involves hip hop, dubstep, classical music, a giggling baby, crashing waves and last, but certainly not least, the roar of an E 63 AMG exhaust.

Interested how all of the above combine? So are we and so are the campaign creators, who have put up a dedicated website where you can make your own mashup of the aforementioned sounds and create a short melody. The best song will apparently be used in the TV adverts. You can mashup away on http://sound-with-power.mercedes-benz.co.uk/Garry Paffett talks about the AMG engine sounds:
