An Italian icon, Lamborghini, brought forth the potent Gallardo. How can a 550+ horsepower, mid-engine V10-powered Italian Supercar be improved upon, you might ask? The answer: lower weight, more power, and an unbelievable change in engine sound. Akrapovic provides all of these and more to this amazing road car. Constructed from unique titanium alloy, this precision-engineered system provides several performance advantages over the stock exhaust. First, due to the mid-engine design, the exhaust system must be located at the very rear of the vehicle. Removing weight from this area is key to improving handling. The titanium Slip-On system for the Gallardo reduces weight in this critical area by an astounding 18 kilograms / 40 pounds.
Improving exhaust-flow dynamics was another design goal. By developing a specialized muffler shape and computer-designed inlets/outlets, Akrapovic extracted 15 horsepower and 27 Nm / 20 lbs-ft of torque more from an already potent engine. With the drop in backpressure, this system is a perfect basis for additional engine tuning. One of the most beloved aspects of the Lamborghini experience is the sound. To complement the muffler design, Akrapovic added their well-known cast titanium "bi-mode" exhaust valves. Both the housings and butterfly valves for the bi-mode system are made from a proprietary titanium mix and cast in an in-house foundry. All of this combined creates a virtual symphony emanating from the large displacement V10.
The bi-mode system gives the exhaust a dual personality. At lower engine speeds and during cruise operation, the valves are closed. This provides a deeper and sharper exhaust note, but subdued enough for daily use without any concerns about drone. At wide-open throttle, the valves open, releasing the full fury of the engine. By adding the optional wireless kit, which includes an active in-car control unit, the driver can override the valves and open them fully at any time. Once opened, a racing-inspired sound level is produced from idle to redline. The crowning touch to all of this is a beautiful set of dry carbon fiber exhaust outlets featuring vented titanium inner sleeves. Carbon fiber components are designed and manufactured by the on-site production facility. They are vacuum-bagged and autoclaved to create a part that is both striking and incredibly durable.

The exhaust market is filled with hundreds of manufacturers, all eyeing one goal; to provide their customers with the best exhaust product. But there is one company that has become synonymous with performance, and that is Akrapovic.
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 in the motorcycle market and then expanded into automobile systems in 2010. Igor’s knowledge of exhaust systems and motorcycles came from his experiences when he drove and raced for a decade at national and international levels.
During his racing career, Igor Akrapovic realized a lack of quality exhausts available to the consumer market. The existing systems 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. And the rest is history.
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 everything 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.
