When it comes to adding aftermarket noise to sports cars, buyers have many options. There are more exhaust brands than there are car brands, so buyers can choose from a wide variety of different sounding exhausts for their car. However, when buying an exhaust for such a high-end, fantastic sounding car such as the Audi R8, options actually become quite limited. Well, limited if you want the new exhaust to sound remotely as good as the spectacular, audible nirvana of the stock V10’s unit.
So, when choosing an exhaust for an Audi R8 V10, there are only a handful of brands that can actually improve on the stock sound. But there’s only one we’d recommend — Akrapovic.
Based and developed entirely in Slovenia, Akrapovic is our favorite brand of exhaust. The work they do is incredible, in both sound quality and build quality. If you look at an Akrapovic exhaust before it goes on the car, you almost don’t want to put it on because then people can’t see it. They look that good. The comes the sound, though.
Akrapovic has the unique capability of making exhausts that are louder than stock without sounding boomy or fake. Their exhausts sound racy, aggressive and exciting, without sounding like something from Fast and Furious. On the Audi R8 V10, the Akrapovic Slip-On Line of Titanium exhausts sounds fantastic.
You can listen to the growly, violent and intoxicating sound of the exhaust on Akrapovic’s site here. If you’re going to add an aftermarket exhaust for your Audi R8 V10, don’t choose anything other than the brand from Slovenia.
