Can 2003+ MB V12 TT engines sound exotic compared to previous NA engines?

Hey guys I was wondering if it's possible to make the 03+ TT V12's sound exotic? The previous NA engines sound really good but I'd love the extra power which is why I'm asking. Have they completely changed the sound or is it being muffled by the turbos?

What I'm talking about

EX: M120

EX: M137

If it's impossible does anyone know if a M137 CL can handle boost from a supercharger?

Thank you

It can probably handle 6-8psi of boost.

Turbos will always take same of the sound, but the turbo engine is so much stronger than the NA V-12. If you got a turbo model and did the exhaust you would still be grinning.
