This beautifully formed exhaust has sound and performance running right through it. Constructed entirely from low-weight, high-grade titanium, it features a central muffler flanked by two valves (the housings of both valves are cast at the in-house Akrapovič foundry) and a link pipe set with an X-connection element. With unique sound patterns designed to offer maximum enjoyment, the X-connection in the link pipe section gives the exhaust system a characteristic Akrapovič high-frequency racing tone in the upper rev range, which is complemented by the deep and iconic Akrapovič rumble from low down in the rev range, providing a distinctive V8 growl. There also is a comfort mode, with no unwanted noise or drone in the cabin. Finished with eye-catching carbon-fibre / titanium tailpipes exiting on either side of the rear of the car, the exhaust also increases power by 7 kW (9.4 hp) at 5,600 rpm and adds 17.2 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm when tested on Akrapovič’s in-house dyno in back-to-back runs with RS Q8 against the stock RS Sport exhaust system. It is a plug-and-play product, and due to its ECE type approval there is no need to tune the ECU.
An optional Akrapovič Sound Kit and Downpipe / Link pipe set (SS) is available to upgrade the Evolution Line (Titanium) exhaust.
