This exhaust has been designed with two exhaust valves fitted outside the muffler to deliver enhanced gas flow and allow for the sound to be tailored, the company said, which will create a smooth, rich sound at normal cruising, with a deep and sporty tone when driving the Audi RS 3 more dynamically. In addition, this system is constructed using titanium for the muffler and link pipe section, and carbon fiber for newly designed, hand-crafted tailpipes.
These materials result in a system over 44% lighter when compared to the standard stock counterpart. The system delivers a power increase of 10.2 hp at 5,450 rpm and a torque gain of 12 lb-ft at 2,800 rpm. These figures were measured on the Akrapovič dyno when tested against an Audi RS 3 with a standard stock exhaust, the company said.
Optional offerings include an optional Akrapovič Sound Kit to offer the driver greater control over the tones produced by the system. Other optional offerings include a carbon fiber diffuser in a high gloss finish.
