The Slip-On Line exhaust system is constructed from an ultra-lightweight high-grade titanium alloy, boosting the R8’s power-to-weight ratio and handling characteristics. The Slip-On Line (Titanium) has been precision engineered to improve throttle response and increase both the power and torque outputs. The performance exhaust system is designed to reduce back-pressure to almost half of the stock levels through a combination of specialized muffler shapes, secondary resonators, and titanium dual-mode exhaust valves. It is finished with two exquisitely hand-crafted carbon-fibre and titanium tailpipes that fit perfectly into the R8’s stock diffusor. It is tuned to enhance the sporty note from the V10 engine while still ensuring maximum comfort and enjoyment in the car’s cockpit. The tone moves from a pleasant growl at low revs to the unique Akrapovič race-like sound as the revs rise and the excitement grows. The sound can be further adjusted with the addition of the optional Akrapovič Sound Kit.

The optional Akrapovič Sound Kit enables owners of selected Akrapovič car exhausts to control the sound of the system from the cockpit of their machine. Using Akrapovič technology, drivers can easily switch between the quiet mode and a sportier sound. With the use of a receiver to drive the actuators that open or close the valves at the end of the exhaust system, drivers can use the Sound Remote Controller or the new smartphone app (for iOS and Android) to regulate the valves.
Cars equipped with Akrapovič exhaust systems benefit from additional performance and increased responsiveness.
