The BMW M cars are some of the most impressive road cars ever created. The engineering masterpiece in the form of the new M TwinPower Turbo M5 has been a welcome challenge to the Akrapovic R&D department, which is responsible for developing truly amazing exhaust system that offer more power, weighs less, and have an EC type-approval stamp at the same time.
Compared to the previous generation, the BMW top sedan has lost two cylinders and has gained turbocharging. This doesn't mean the M5 has lost its pure driving excellence just the opposite. Add a full titanium Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system and you'll never stop driving.
The new Evolution exhaust system consists of newly developed dual-outlet mufflers with exhaust valves, flow-optimized pipes, and a unique cast titanium X-shaped part with resonators. The X-pipe, valves, and flange assembly are produced in our foundry.
The Evolution system lowers the back pressure and gives the M5 more power and torque through the whole range of rpms. It increases responsiveness. The Evolution system offers an even greater difference in weight, improving the power-to-weight ratio. Gains are achieved without removing the catalytic converters.
While developing this system, Akrapovic especially focused on sound. An M5 with the Evolution system delivers a deep, aggressive roar when driven hard, coaxing bangs out of the unique tail pipes when shifting and going off the throttle. To top it all off, the Evolution system is drone free and works well with the M5's Active Noise Cancellation system just like the valve system, which is regulated through the M5’s settings.

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. Akrapovic continues to take home the best brand awards and they boast a number of MotoGP and Motocross wins to boot.
Akrapovic’s exhaust components boast quality materials, innovative design, pure power, unique sound, high technology. They are race-proven and backed by extensive research, development, and testing. All of its products are engineered with racing pedigree in mind and are, therefore, able to withstand immense mechanical and environmental strain. Not only do its exhaust systems play the part well, but they also sound beyond incredible thanks to the brand’s combined acoustic experience.
