Hot diggity god damn :oops:


In the city of Kawasaki, south of Tokyo, you’ll be lucky to find this one nondescript garage. There’s no signage, branding, or any indication that magic happens here. This is Technical Garage Sasaki, home to the man behind Brilliant Exhaust, one of the wildest exhaust tuners anywhere in the world.

Sasaki-san has been in the aural pleasure business for 13 years and he’s learned by ear from experience.

He started off working on BMWs and Ferraris when he moved on to perhaps his most infamous work: the Mercedes-Benz S600. He started out with a W220 S600 test car, which is where the video from almost 7 years ago came from with him driving the car through a small village. He then moved on to W140 S600, I’m sure many of us here have seen that brilliant video on YouTube from three years ago with the car doing multiple tunnel runs in the middle of the night.

Sasaki-san used the S-Class as a test bed for perfecting his exhaust technique. Through three trial and error attempts he finally found the perfect high pitch sweet spot for what he was looking for. In a way, Sasaki-san is as much of a musician and composer as he is an engineer.

I'm surprised that video didn't get posted in the Cheesefrog thread.

Cause that S600 video is old, but still great.

Also, GM needs a V12 in the Vette, now that its mid-engined and all. :)

That vid is super old, but I always go back to it because its so awesome. This vid did just drop last week tho with an actual customer car from the same guy that designed the prototype from those first vids. This thing is just so obnoxious you just have to laugh :ROFLMAO:
