Akrapovič has released its BMW M8/M8 Competition Evolution Line (Titanium) exhaust for both coupe and convertible models and can now be found at Turn 14 Distribution, the sole U.S. automotive distributor for Akrapovič.
The full titanium exhaust system is finished with two sets of carbon fiber and titanium tailpipes coming from a central muffler layout, which features two valves, one located on either side of the muffler. The housings are cast in-house in the Akrapovič foundry, and there is a cast collector on the link pipe. Here, gases from both sides of the engine mix, which allows the elements of the system to create the desired sound. The installation of this system provides 22.4 pounds of weight reduction when compared to the stock exhaust.
The Evolution Line (Titanium) exhaust system is constructed from high-grade lightweight titanium alloys and is tuned to deliver the very best auditory experience in all driving modes, the company says, coaxing a higher-frequency V8 sound from the car’s turbo engine, more akin to that of a muscle car.
This plug-and-play exhaust system can be further regulated with the addition of the Akrapovič Sound Kit to control the valves in the exhaust and switch between the sound modes. Further visual enhancements are possible, including the addition of the optional hand-made carbon fiber diffuser and mirror caps, available in matte and glossy finishes.
The system does not meet emission compliance requirements for street or highway use.
