Akrapovic Reveals First Ever Black Edition Exhaust

Car Culture / Comments

Made especially for the Mercedes-AMG G63.

Believe it or not, but a car's exhaust system can make or break the driving experience, especially in a high-performance car. If it doesn't deliver the right pitch and tone, the car can physically feel slower, and more importantly, less cool. For most, fitting an aftermarket exhaust fixes that problem, but some systems are better than others, and when we talk about better, we're obviously referring to Akrapovic, the masters of all things exhaust related.

We have covered this company's exploits in previous years: there was a Lamborghini Gallardo with a clean exhaust install, an SLA AMG that sounded brutal, and more recently a Bentley Bentayga that got an option you'd never find on a Rolls Royce. So we know Akrapovic can build a mean exhaust system, but what they have in store is truly exciting.

The company's latest offering is called the Evolution Line (Titanium) Black Edition and it has been specially developed for the Mercedes-AMG G63. This is the first time the Slovenian specialist has manufactured a system with completely black tailpipes. This system has been crafted using high grade, lightweight titanium alloys and includes noise modulating valves on each muffler. The system comes as a complete package with unique black-coated tailpipes. This is the first time something like this has been done, and the pieces are finished off with engraved Akrapovic and Black Edition logotypes.

This system utilizes a pair of valves situated behind the mufflers, to control the exhaust tone, and at full blast, you get a sound that is deep and sporty without creating too much drone. The driver can open and close the valves from inside the cabin for added comfort. Weight has been kept on the low end of the scale by using high-grade lightweight titanium alloys and is 44.5% lighter than the stock system. Only a limited number of these systems have been made, priced at $9,400.
