All of the knowledge and experience gained while working with various engines from the sports car manufacturer from Stuttgart was poured into this outstanding aftermarket exhaust system. Produced from lightweight titanium, the system uses complex parts meticulously crafted using the in-house titanium foundry to offer perfect acoustics. An instant deepness prevails from the moment the engine is started and as the revs rise, and so does the sensory involvement. At low rpms the exhaust emits a deep, iconic flat-six rumble, moving through a powerful mid-range, which then develops into a rich, strong, and high-frequency acoustic sensation at high revs, perfectly tuned to upshifts, providing a thrilling experience as the higher gears are selected and exhilarating, race-inspired burbles through the downshifts. This sound pattern is achieved with a carefully calculated H-link between the main pipes, which is precisely welded at a selected position. The system has been developed for use on closed-course competition circuits, but there is no compromise on comfort because the tuning of the system eliminates any drone or unwanted flow noise. Power and torque increases have been recorded at +16.6 kW (22.5 hp) and +46.8 Nm at 3,400 rpm when tested in back-to-back runs on the Akrapovic dyno against a Porsche 911 Turbo (992) using the Porsche stock sports exhaust system, with the torque curve offering a perfect response from low down engine speed. The system is not EC/ECE type approved.

In short, Akrapovic is a Slovenian manufacturer of exhaust systems. Founded in 1990 by Igor Akrapovic, the brand was originally born to fill a need for high-quality exhausts. It started out in the motorcycle market and then expanded into automobile systems in 2010. Igor’s knowledge of exhaust systems and motorcycles came from his own personal experiences when he drove and raced for a decade at both national and international levels. During his racing career, Igor Akrapovic came to the realization that there was a lack of quality exhausts available to the consumer market. The systems that did exist were unsatisfactory in terms of technology and manufactured from heavy steel. The good ones, of course, cost too much for the average customer and so the story goes.
Akrapovic took it upon itself to simply start making its own exhausts. In order to offer the best product possible, the company replaced the heavy steel used by other brands with lighter materials like titanium and carbon fiber. What began as a team of just six people is now a prominent company with more than 500 employees and a world-recognized name. Akrapovic’s vision was clear from day one and the brand is still dedicated to manufacturing only the best high-quality exhaust systems to the public and racing teams.
Akrapovic is the number one manufacturer of all things exhaust from headers and clamps to complete systems. Whether you are looking for an exhaust system for your motorcycle, daily cruiser, or race car, Akrapovic has an exceptionally lightweight and high-tech offering for that application.
