Simply the highest quality exhaust system available on the market for the 2022 Audi RS 3 8Y. Constructed from high-grade titanium tubes and a muffler, which are attached to the car’s stock downpipes with a high-quality stainless-steel link pipe and finished with hand-crafted carbon-fibre tailpipes and a titanium inner sleeve.
Weighing in at 44.1% lighter than the standard setup, this system provides power gains of 7.5 kW (10.2 hp) at 5,450 rpm and torque increases of 8.8 Nm at 3,900 rpm (when tested on the Akrapovič dyno against an Audi RS 3 with a standard stock exhaust).
The in-house foundry casts the housings for the two exhaust valves, one for each side of the muffler to tailor the sound. The distinctive tones of the five-cylinder engine serve up a relaxed and pleasing purr in comfort mode, with a tasteful reminder of the car’s potential when cruising in dynamic mode, and then the full sound experience is delivered while accelerating and reaching for the limit. A high-gloss handmade rear carbon-fibre diffuser is available as an optional extra, as is the optional Akrapovič Sound Kit to offer full control over the exhaust tones.
The exhaust system is ECE type approved for cars equipped with an Otto/gasoline particulate filter. If the Akrapovič Sound Kit is fitted, the Evolution Line (Titanium) ECE type-approval certificate is not valid but recommended for use in the UK and other unregulated areas.
