Akrapovič Expands Its Portfolio of McLaren Ultra-Lightweight Exhausts
June 1, 2017
Akrapovič is taking McLaren’s Sports Series cars to new levels of excellence with the introduction of the Slip-On Line (Titanium) exhaust for the 570S, 570GT, and 540C models, which will boost the exhilaration of this car to even greater heights.
The new high-tech system is made of special, lightweight, durable, and heat-resistant titanium alloys, which are perfectly styled to create an exhaust that is not only routed for optimum flow, but is a stunning piece of functional art in its own right. The use of these ultra-lightweight materials reduces the weight by a significant 44.5% and increases the capabilities of these already confidence-inspiring cars. With less weight over the rear axle and a lower centre of gravity, the handling is improved, producing a more exciting and rewarding drive. The optimised configuration and bigger tubes mean this exhaust delivers improvements exactly where they are most important. The distinctive coating gives the exhaust an enhanced appearance, and the parts most exposed to heat feature high-performance insulation for protection. The whole system comes to an eye-catching close with two flawlessly styled, aesthetically pleasing handmade carbon-fibre tailpipes, beautifully complementing the titanium exhaust pipes.
Akrapovič has created a system that focuses on every aspect to create a unique sound colour ideally matched to the cars. It further enhances the driving enjoyment, and gives the V8 engine that recognisable Akrapovič signature.
The Akrapovič Slip-On Line (Titanium) for these McLarens is a technically sophisticated exhaust that is a perfect match for these fine cars. The Slip-On Line is a handcrafted lightweight exhaust that meets the demands of the car with innovative solutions, stunning design, and an incredible soundtrack. The synthesis of these two automotive works of art creates a seamless combination that is sure to attract attention.
