The Service Team at Redline Speed Worx (RSW) is Proud to have the opportunity to upgrade a local customer's Audi RS7 4.0T with a complete Akrapovic Titanium Exhaust System. Audi’s high-performance RS models are an ideal match for the expertly styled and beautifully engineered Akrapovič Evolution exhaust systems.
The Evolution gives more power, higher torque, decreases the weight, and delivers an unmistakable Akrapovič sound—which has a deep sound at lower revs and a ‘popping’ sound as things speed up when the throttle is lifted.
This titanium exhaust system has cast collectors and three mufflers, with the central one featuring an x-piece inside, which increase power and improve its sound. The valves of the system are designed to open and close in line with the RS’ standard electronics, and the whole system has carbon-fibre tailpipes to show off the exquisite finish of the Akrapovič exhaust.
Every component of an Akrapovič exhaust is carefully designed and constructed by a highly skilled multidisciplinary team of designers, engineers and architects; they successfully take on daily challenges – combine a technical solution with an attractive, modern and state-of-the-art design.
Newly developed and handmade products are tested on the most challenging race tracks around the world in partnership with dozens of top-notch racing teams. The development process of a prototype starts with a 3D scan of the reference car underbody. The defined 3D coordinates and exact boundaries of the space provided for the exhaust system help develop and optimise the exhaust system layout. Its design is evaluated and optimised to meet the needs of world racing champions.
A team of engineers spends countless days looking for the perfect sound, one of the four major elements of exhaust system design. On one hand, the exhaust system must fulfil the homologation noise levels, on the other hand, a good exhaust system is expected to deliver better and appreciated sound that you want to be recognised by. At Akrapovič, special measurement techniques and equipment are used to capture and analyse cabin and tailpipe exhaust sound, which is presented in a sound colour map - a signature of the exhaust system. Based on results, proper acoustic elements are calculated.
From development to production, you can see the precision that goes into making each new exhaust system. This is further underscored by close business relationships with suppliers of titanium and other materials that are used in the production of exhaust systems. At the Akrapovič metallurgical laboratory with the latest equipment , the company checks and assesses all major material properties and offers support to the titanium casting facility, production and R&D activities, ensuring final products of the finest quality.
Great ideas need to be brought to fruition in a great and state-of-the art product. The production process makes this possible. It is a synthesis of expertise from various engineering spheres such as forming, welding, assembly processing, bending, modern CNC machining, controlling, and many others. Of course the basis for everything is proper tooling: it is the key to success. The company boasts an in-house tooling design and a tooling workshop so it is able to design and produce unique tools and jigs. Furthermore, Akrapovič has over 20 years of experience in using titanium alloys for exhaust system applications, which shows in every product.
