Akrapovič designs an ‘Evolution’ for the latest Audi RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback

Akrapovič has launched the latest in its range of Evolution exhaust systems, with two superb new products designed for Audi’s flagship RS models.

The Akrapovič Evolution is the perfect partner for Audi’s V8 high-performance machines. This system gives an increase in power and torque outputs, as well as improves throttle response and decreases weight. These upgrades are allied with a deep pleasing sound that is tuned exclusively for these RS models.

These beautifully crafted systems are made from titanium—with just the very short front part with flexible joints manufactured from stainless steel—and are completely designed and manufactured in-house by Akrapovič’s skilled technicians. This is finished off with two stunningly styled, round carbon-fiber tailpipes which certainly make the RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback stand-out from the crowd and show that the car means business.

These new systems have two end mufflers and a central one specially designed with an x-piece inside for more power and sound. The Audi RS Evolution Systems have electric actuators fitted to steer the exhaust valves, to adjust to the driving program of the vehicle and style of the driver. This means the valves close as the car is ‘cruising’ along, but when the revs and speed increase the valves open. Also, if the individual settings are adjusted or the ‘dynamic’ program is chosen on the car, then the valves also open in the system.

The unique, deep Akrapovič sound is very much at the heart of the Audi RS Evolution system. It makes a ‘popping’ sound as the revs rise and the throttle is released, which gives a heightened and gratifying aural effect to drivers, passengers, and admiring watchers alike, without giving an unwanted drone or excessive interference in the RS’s cabin.

With easy-to-fit instructions in the included manual and no ECU re-map needed (it’s simply a plug and play system), the new Evolution systems for the Audi RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback make an already superb car even better in terms of performance, sound, and looks.
