Pre-orders may now be taken for the new BMW M5 (F90) Akrapovič exhaust system
With a long history of producing elite systems for BMWs, Akrapovič were particularly excited to work on the latest M5. With a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8, producing 592bhp and 750Nm, it really has moved the game on, not least because it can be switched between 2 or 4wd depending on driver mood. Manufacturer figures are impressive too, with 0-62mph quoted in just 3.4secs. Add to this an engaging chassis, plus subtly aggressive looks and it’s clear that the latest M5 is set to be a big hit with enthusiast drivers. Which is where Akrapovič comes in…
Having taken delivery of one of the first M5’s available, Akrapovič began to examine the stock system. They soon realised that significant improvement could be made, particularly to the sound. Following many months of intensive research and development, their engineers have created a full Evolution Line titanium system that will transform the performance and sound of the M5’s twin-turbo V8. Like all Akrapovič systems, specialist 3D sound maps were used to ensure the sound was perfectly balanced – sporty and aggressive for enthusiastic driving, but with no drone when cruising. It’s this refinement that sets Akrapovič exhaust systems apart from the rest and the reason that they are so easy to live with.
Beautifully finished in ultra-lightweight titanium, the Evolution Line system comes with carbon fibre, quad-exit tailpipes in a matte finish. Official figures are yet to be released, but as with every Akrapovič system, expect significant gains to power and torque as well as a drop in weight over the stock system.
As well as the Evolution Line titanium system, optional extras include an Akrapovič Sound Kit for full exhaust valve control and a host of carbon fibre additions including, mirror caps and a rear diffuser in both matt and gloss carbon fibre. For the first time ever, Akrapovic now offers options for the logo displayed on both the carbon tailpipes and rear diffuser options. You can choose from the standard red/white or the new moody looking grey logo.
This stunning titanium system for the M5 (F90) is now available to pre-order, directly through our Akrapovič Dealer network with first deliveries expected towards the end of August. View our product page here for more information
