Akrapovič dealer, GVE London, has produced another video showing an exhaust installation. This time it’s the Evolution Line titanium system, which transforms the latest 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.
Specially developed as a direct replacement for the stock exhaust or optional performance set-up, the Akrapovič system not only offers tangible performance benefits, but it’s also a work of art in its own right.
It offers an active X-connection, plus an additional pair of valves located behind the rear mufflers, designed to provide complete control over the exhaust sound. There are two different sound characteristics (Sport and Comfort) and three different driving sound settings.
Manufactured from a blend of carefully selected materials including ultra-lightweight titanium and carbon fibre, the Evolution Line system is a perfect fit. Akrapovič use laser technology to scan the space available underneath a car, so that they can plan the best route for optimum gas flow and also ensure that the system is an impeccable fit. With a titanium foundry and carbon fibre facility on site, Akrapovič are able to maintain a strict eye on quality.
Of course, ensuring the system fits is important, but so too are the performance benefits. As with every Akrapovič product, rigorous testing is carried out both on the road and on the dyno to make sure it performs better than the stock item. In the case of the AMG C63, this equates to gains of +8hp and +27.9Nm – with the torque figure especially healthy. With a weight saving of 13kg, it’s clear that the engineers more than achieved their original brief.
But there’s more. As no remap is required, this is a true plug-and-play system, so installation is straightforward. The system fits all Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupes, although cars without the optional OEM sports exhaust will require the Akrapovič Valve Actuator Kit. The Akrapovič Sound Kit is recommended along with this to allow the driver to easily adjust the sound from inside the car.
As with all Akrapovič exhaust systems, the sound is something that the engineers take very seriously. Using 3D sound mapping technology, each system goes through rigorous development to ensure that it makes that uniquely sonorous Akrapovič sound – sporty and purposeful when you want it to be, but refined and unobtrusive when you don’t. It’s this detail and refinement that sets Akrapovič apart from the rest.
As you can hear from the video, the finished exhaust installation gives the C63 a thrilling sound when revved, really making the most of that fantastic 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine.
