Akrapovic C8 Corvette Exhaust
The Akrapovic exhaust system for the C8 Corvette is constructed from high-grade lightweight titanium and is more than 47% lighter than the stock sport exhaust. Two beautifully finished sets of square titanium tailpipes, with a black interior, are coated for better durability and scratch resistance and relay the sound from the lightweight system. The exhaust is tailored to control the gas flow from the engine and provide a perfect sound: a V8 throb at low revs, which gradually evolves into a rich roar as the revs rise, creating an aural delight.
The two tubes that connect the left and right sides of the system have different diameters to provide increased stiffness to the system and enhance the overall sound experience. The tubes are fully insulated to prevent any excess heat from affecting other parts of the car.
With a perfect throttle response and providing a power increase of 3.4 kW (4.6 hp) at 5,250 rpm and a torque gain of 8.2 Nm at 3,100 rpm – when tested on the Akrapovic dyno against a Corvette Stingray with a stock sport exhaust system.
Note: The Akrapovic exhaust has no need for remapping and is intended for use on racetracks and closed courses only.
