Maranello has outdone itself once again. The 458 Italia is arguably one of the most impressive road-going cars ever designed. With its lightweight construction, technical innovations, and 570 horsepower, 4.5 liter engine spinning up to 9,000 rpm, it is a driving experience that cannot be easily forgotten. To further add to the excitement of this car Akrapovic has designed a completely new aftermarket muffler system crafted entirely of titanium.* Incorporating dual mode exhaust valves, this triple exit system allows for a subdued sound at low rpm (though crisper than stock). However, at higher rpm it fully unleashes the incredible sound of the F1-inspired, high-revving V8. Also included is a new carbon fiber/titanium exhaust tail pipe set. Subtle and understated, the new tail pipe set makes it clear that this is not a standard car.
The 458 is no stranger to performance. Nevertheless, Akrapovic has been able to extract further horsepower from this jewel of an engine. With the EC Type approval Slip-On system installed a gain of 9 horsepower and 22 Nm of torque is gained.
On a car of this design, weight savings are incredibly difficult to achieve. Remarkably, this kit is able to shave 8 kilograms from the stock system. These weight savings, coupled with the added power and enhanced sound the system offers, makes a marvelous car truly unforgettable.

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.

All of its products are engineered with racing pedigree in mind and are, therefore, able to withstand immense mechanical and environmental strain.
