Akrapovic exhausts for cars are now available in Malaysia, brought in by High N Lubricant Sdn Bhd.
While Akrapovic (pronounced “Ack-rap’-o-vich”) has enjoyed a dominant reputation in the motorbike world, their name in the car tuning market is unheard of by many. Akrapovic are usually synonymous with light weight, awesome power, and just one of the horniest exhaust soundtracks you’ll ever hear!
Akrapovic exhausts have won more than 29 world championship titles in the motorcycle racing scene. Their first success in car racing came at the prestigious 2006 ADAC 24 Hours race at Nurburgring. The same team, Manthey Racing running the Porsche 911 GT3-RSR won it in again 2007 and 2008. Cars running Akrapovic exhaust have also won numerous races in Porsche Sports Cup Series with the 911 GT3-RS. The difference with other vehicles in this series was in the Akrapovic titanium exhaust system with a 21 kg weight advantage and increasing the engine output by 8.4 HP and 16 Nm of torque. They have also produced exhaust systems for Formula 1 teams.
Apparently Akrapovic spend a lot of time in the dynocell fine-tuning that melodious exhaust bellow, which they have turned in to a USP.
And another, main benefit of Akrapovic exhausts are that they’re made using titanium and TIG welding. This means: ultra-light weight. For example, Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System fitted to the BMW 335i will have an engine output increase of 12.4 HP and 16.4 NM of torque, tested on a dyno with a completely standard car. It weighs in at 14.37 kg while the standard exhaust weighs in at 34.22 kg which is a massive savings of 19.85 kg. This will definitely improve the acceleration, handling and also the braking performance of the car on top of the horsepower and torque gained. It is made entirely from titanium and will give the car a sporty sound that will reflect the formidable nature of the powerful six-pot engine.
Currently Akrapovic exhaust systems are available for several Porsches and BMWs, the awesome Nissan GT-R, and there’s a system for the Mini Cooper S coming soon.
