Larini Systems Sports Cats Ferrari 550 96-02
Larini Systems is a company unique in the field of stainless steel exhausts. Their unparalleled combination of decades of design and ergonomic expertise, and manufacturing acumen is an asset that few other companies can match.
For road going sportscars, Larinis methodology is a deliberate choice of quality craftsmanship over assembly line standard, and aesthetic over perfunctory design. These principles of excellence are their core attributes, leading to products that are more than base mechanical parts, but elevated to a development level that can only be described as artful engineering.
The Larini company does not merely utilize the basic mechanical skills of an engineer or manufacturer, but includes disparate elements not normally associated with normal exhaust manufacturing. From creating race car manifolds to producing modern high-performance Supercar systems, their team has the wide experience and know-how that enables us to create superb and custom-made systems for any exotic high performance vehicle.
Larini 200-cell sports cats replace the original cats and clean emissions while permitting a significant power increase - without any technical or legal issues. The original lambda/heat probes connections are retained in their correct positions for the proper operation of hte OBD system.
Original vehicle manufacturer catalytic converters typically have 600 cells per square inch (cpsi). These original cats are restrictive in their flow; only allowing an open area of approximately 55%. A Larini Sports Cat alternatively has only 200 cpsi, an open area of 90% and offers near unopposed gas flow. The resulting increase in flow rates - with a reduction of backpressure, allowing the engine to "breathe" and perform better.
Larini Sports Cats are Euro-3 emissions level rated - returning cleaner emission results than most standard catalysts, making it possible for vehicle tuners to obtain high power gains, whilst meeting government emission levels and staying road-legal with high reliability.
br>Lightweight construction and a "Mirror Polished" effect ensures fit and finish are vastly superior to the original items.
Fits Ferrari 550 Maranello and Barchetta 96-02.

Many people see European sports cars as the pinnacle of automotive design and technology. The manufacturers from Europe produce some of the best high-performance cars globally and have set standards on how cars are designed and made. But it has not stopped aftermarket companies from further improving what is already considered the best.
Building aftermarket products for these cars is no easy feat as it requires a special kind of attention. Larini System is one of the few companies that successfully deliver such products making them widely recognized in the community. In fact, they have become the go-to brand of enthusiasts worldwide.
Larini Systems is the world’s leading designer of the finest, high-performance engine component systems for Italian, British, AudiSport Track, and GT Supercars. Combining aerospace engineering, aviation-grade materials, and sensational sound allows Larini to optimize the weight, tone, efficiency, and overall performance of a supercar.
Whether a Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, or Ferrari, there is an associated Larini System available to offer optimal performance paired with incredibly tuned harmonics. There are also Formula 1-derived race systems for hypercars like the Ferrari F50.
Thanks to innovation and technological advancements, each Larini system is light, efficient, and powerful – whether on the road or the street. The systems are designed to a peerless standard in the United Kingdom, the home of International Motorsport. You can rest assured that each Larini component is readied to meet and surpass all standards and expectations.
The Larini difference is one you can see, feel, and hear; it appeals to all of your senses. Larini prides itself on its attention to detail and design in every engine component it produces.
Each Larini system is hand-built in modern production facilities by specially skilled craftsmen utilizing only the finest materials available. It is constructed in a dedicated fixed jig between T304 > T.316 stainless steel and is back-purged with Argon gas and TIG-welded to fabricate smooth, solid, and uncontaminated welds.
All of the laser-cut stainless steel mounting brackets, flanges, and fixings are added for their high strength and resilience. This process allows them to create one of the best products in the world worthy of being installed in such supercars.
Larini exhaust systems are specially designed and manufactured to achieve maximum unobstructed gas flow and utilize motorsport or acoustic sound absorption materials. The result is a blissful balance dictated by the horsepower figures versus operating temperatures. The perforated stainless-steel tubes disrupt pressure waves by regulating backpressure levels.
This process leads to minimum flow restriction and optimal engine power output. Larini exhaust systems are also intended to be easily installed onto catalytic converter equipment or directly to manifolds. It alleviates the headache of any unnecessary modifications since all Larini parts utilize a vehicle’s OEM hardware.
Larini is the natural choice for those seeking to optimize the performance, weight, acoustics, aesthetics, and longevity of their vehicle’s exhaust system.
