The very essence of the product is in the Akrapovič design.
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.
Testing further ensures better resonant sound, faster acceleration and exhaust systems that are eco-friendly.
Scrupulous attention to chemical compositions and gas content of titanium, stainless steel and aluminium alloys is constant; gas content is crucial for the quality of cast titanium parts. Hardness and micro-
hardness measurements, tensile properties, plastic properties and formability determinations are carried out for all incoming and new materials by a team of highly-skilled engineers. Such regular procedures
ensure the best quality of the final product and the use of the best materials.
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.
