This system is constructed using lightweight race-proven materials, titanium for the muffler and link pipe section, and carbon fibre for newly designed, hand-crafted tailpipes, delivering a result that is over 44% lighterin comparison to the standard stock system.
The Evolution Line (Titanium) has two exhaust valves – which has a housing cast in Akrapovič’s own foundry – fitted outside the muffler. This design feature with perfect gas flow allows the sound to be tailored to deliver an Akrapovič aural effect. This creates a smooth, rich sound at normal cruising, with a deep and sporty tone when driving the Audi RS3 more dynamically. Power is increased by 7,5 kW (10.2 hp) at 5,450 rpm, with a torque gain of 16.3 Nm at 2,800 rpm. These figures were measured on the Akrapovič dyno when tested against an Audi RS3 with a standard stock exhaust.
No remapping is required, giving it a plug-and-play capability, and an optional Akrapovič Sound Kit is also available to offer the driver greater control over the superb tones produced by the system.
The exhaust system is ECE type approved for cars equipped with an Otto/gasoline particulate filter.
SOUND KIT INFO:
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 (already included in evolution system) 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.
