All of us at IND have been anxiously anticipating the arrival of the Akrapovic Titanium exhaust system for the V10 R8, and we were fortunate enough to finally have the opportunity to install a system in house at IND’s facility last week. As anticipated, the Akrapovic system is an absolute masterpiece. It’s titanium construction reduces weight at the very extremity of the car, right where it’s most effective. The cast titanium valve system is a unique Akrapovic design, and allows for a subdued tone during regular driving, and a wide open sports car sound at high RPM. Akrapovic’s optional wireless kit can be added to the exhaust package for in-cabin adjustment of the exhaust note. Finally, the beautiful carbon fiber exhaust tips finish the appearance of the system.
Akrapovic’s exhaust system for the V10 R8 saves an incredible 35lbs over the factory exhaust, and produces a 14hp gain!
