Audi R8 V10 by Akrapovic

Anytime you have an Audi R8 V10, then you already have a car that’s as imposing and powerful as any sports car on the streets. But once you add an Akrapovic exhaust set-up, then, well, all bets are off.

The Slovenian tuning firm and specialists in the science of exhaust systems has released a new package that not only gives the R8 V10 a new exhaust set-up, but a corresponding power increase to go with it. The new titanium Slip-On exhaust system comes with carbon tail pipes with an optional wireless kit to give the driver the option of controlling the sound of the exhaust for either street or track use. The exhaust not only reduces the R8’s overall weight by 16kg (35 lbs), but also bumps up the output of the car’s 5.2-liter V10 engine from the standard 525 horsepower and 391 lb/ft of torque to 536 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 403 lb/ft of torque at 5,000 rpm.[...]
