Mercedes SLS Coupé/Roadster (C197/R197) Akrapovic Titanium Evolution Line Exhaust System
Akrapovic has crafted a high-performance titanium Evolution exhaust system to further enhance this legendary performance car with a massive 6.3-liter V8. Made of our proprietary titanium alloy, the Evolution exhaust system is a “cat back” system. There are significant weight savings that aid handling and the power improvement is delivered across the rev range. The performance exhaust system further enhances the driving experience with the famed unmistakable deep resonant sound of Akrapovic, which is controlled with?Akrapovic sound kit for exhaust valve control. When the valves are open, this powerful machine roars like a typical V8 muscle car. Complete the look with a pair of stunning handcrafted carbon fibre tailpipes with a special titanium alloy core.
We accept no compromises! The company’s vision was clear from the very beginning, and we have not faltered. What started as an innovative,
driven group of six, is now a modern prominent company of more than 13,000 m2 of production and commercial space and with 450 employees, all of us aware that we produce exhaust systems for customers who simply do not accept mistakes – the most demanding racing teams and riders from around the world.
Only the best is good enough for us. But the best is not just the exclusive privilege of the factory teams. Now it is available to everyone!
An exhaust system looks simple at first glance. But a closer look shows that it is a complex system that has a significant effect on the performance of a racing or a regular sports car.
The experience in racing that we acquired over many years, taught us how to combine high performance, a long-life cycle and the lightest possible weight. Our numerous world championship titles and countless international and national titles are a testament to our continuous ability to fulfil our clients’ highest expectations.
The titanium we use for our exhaust systems is produced exclusively for us. It is three times stronger and is more heat resistant than any other titanium product on the market and 40% lighter than stainless steel. The high strength allows us to use thinner insulation while still achieving the highest quality standards. In fact, this brings our clients the decisive advantage on the race track.
- Performance and quality
Our goal is to make the perfect torque and the perfect power curve. Our research and development department is provided with the latest equipment, so that they are able to combine their collective know-how obtained at many race tracks and even Formula 1, and apply it in practice.
Please note that certain aftermarket exhaust systems may not comply with applicable California laws and regulations, and may therefore be prohibited for use on California highways or roads, or on roads or vehicles otherwise subject to emissions control requirements.
Akrapovi? exhaust systems for automobiles and motorcycles mounted downstream of the catalytic converter (also known as “cat-back systems”) are considered “replacement parts” in California by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and do not require an exemption or executive order from CARB to be sold in California. However, California prohibits the use of any aftermarket exhaust system that modifies, removes or replaces original equipment catalysts, unless CARB has issued an Executive Order as to such part or system.
Further, Akrapovi? parts or exhaust systems used or intended for use on “racing vehicles” (i.e. a competition vehicle used exclusively for competition on closed-course circuits) do not require an exemption or Executive Order from CARB to be sold in California. However, such parts are prohibited from use on California public highways or roads, even if occasionally used “off-road.”??
