Formula 1 features 24 cars with screaming high-pitched 2.4-litre V8 engines. We know this. But it's also worth listening out for the AMG medical cars. As well as the SLS Safety Car, the Medical Car that follows behind them for the first lap or two in case of early accidents has to pack more stuff into it, so instead they use a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate, which is like a normal C-Class estate, but with a 487bhp version of the C63's grizzly, low-pitched 6.2-litre V8. Plus it has lights on the roof. I suggest you either turn up your speakers or put some headphones in, because someone was nice enough to film it doing its thing (and being driven satisfyingly hard) at last week's Italian Grand Prix... and it sounds good. Really good. Especially when the 7-speed automatic gearbox blips the throttle on down-shifts.

If you were hoping for a little more of the SLS AMG though, don't worry, YouTube user Jorrie2 has got your back. If you're hungry for more ear candy, him and 'Marchettino' are generally the people to search for.
