Akrapovič has long been regarded as the leader in premium exhaust technology through its use of innovative materials and state-of-the-art design. It has now taken this to a higher level with the introduction of its first exhaust component available for the open market constructed from ceramic composite.
Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) is an ultra-light material, approximately 50% lighter than titanium, and it is regularly used in extreme racing and aerospace solutions, but Akrapovič has pushed the boundaries of exhaust system manufacturing once again and developed parts that are now available to all, and not just for specialized fields. CMC can withstand intensely high peak temperatures of 1,000 °C, making it an ideal material for the hot gases emitted from high-performance engines. With the use of CMC, Akrapovič has applied the highest level of technology available to create parts that take an immense amount of time and effort to produce, are unique, and have a visually striking appearance with an assertive look that perfectly matches the material’s extreme racing heritage. This new product from Akrapovič is just the latest in a long line of advances from the Slovenian company, and it will certainly cement its position at the forefront of premier exhaust technology and manufacturing.
The first product for the open market from Akrapovič featuring Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) will be a Rear Carbon Fiber Diffuser with Ceramic Composite Tail Pipe Set for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991.2)*. The stunning hand-crafted carbon-fibre diffuser is the perfect accompaniment for these exotic space-age CMC tailpipes. The entire package gives the rear of the car an imposing look and – although designed for track use only – the appearance of this unique item shows the car means business, even when it is parked in the pit lane.
This exquisite pairing of the Rear Carbon Fibre Diffuser with Ceramic Composite Tail Pipe Set is limited to just 20 sets, with each one featuring a unique serial number between 1 and 20 to attest to its rarity and authenticity. Every customer that purchases a set will receive a certificate confirming that it is a limited edition, adding to the entire attractive package. Once again, Akrapovič has pushed the boundaries even further and has entered a new age of exhaust technology with Ceramic Matrix Composite. The company is already looking toward the future and additional advances and innovations.
