If you’re a European Performance Car enthusiast in Canada and the United states, Akrapovic Exhaust Systems is surely a name you're familiar with. If not, well, you’re in for a treat.
Akrapovic is the top Aftermarket Manufacturer of exhaust systems in the world and, at SportsCarBoutique, we are proud to be their exclusive Canadian Distributor and one of only a few distributing to the United States.
With a presence on every continent and with products in 68 countries around the world, including Canada and the United States, Akrapovic is a dominant force in both the automotive street and racing scenes. They’ve been part of championship Motorsport teams, received Best Brand awards in the automotive parts industry, and - most importantly - satisfied their customers at every step of the process.
Founded by Igor Akrapovic in Slovenia around 1991, the company had humble beginnings as an aftermarket manufacturer specializing in motorcycle exhaust systems. Igor’s passion for Motorsport racing - in which he participated for over 2 decades - informed a knowledge base, work ethic, and passion for the sights and sounds of racing that are deeply embedded in the Akrapovic company Ethos.
Fast forward to the 21st century, and Akrapovic has successfully dominated a much larger Motorsport market. In 2008, Akrapovic entered the car exhaust system industry by storm - their first major project being the Porsche 911 GT2. The company has never looked back since, making Akrapovic a partner of racing teams from Audi, BMW, Aston Martin, and many, many more.
Akrapovic Exhaust Systems now support championship-caliber two- and four-wheel vehicles around the world. Drivers across top-tier circuits like MotoGP, WorldSBK, WEC, FIA, DTM, and MXGP are fully aware of the added boost that the Slovenian company’s technicians provide. In a sport that has such slim margins of victory, Akrapovic is the difference.
Akrapovic’s industry-leading exhaust systems are the result of a singular focus that allows them to keep ahead of stock manufacturers - including many high-end car producers - at every step. By keeping their eye on the highly technical exhaust component itself, Akrapovic designers, engineers, and technicians have received the highly-coveted certification for product quality and safety from the stringent German oversight organization Technischer Überwachungsverein (TUV).
Investing in an in-house titanium foundry and metallurgical laboratory has opened multiple new doors for the company and is another display of how Akrapovic is dedicated to staying ahead of the curve in their exhaust system development practices. By using the highest quality materials - like titanium, stainless steel, and carbon fiber - as the starting point for their product base, Akrapovic Engineers ensure that each product has that sharp, low rumble and performance-enhancing qualities that motor enthusiasts have come to associate with the brand.
Whether you drive an Audi, Porsche, BMW, or Mercedes (among many other exclusive high-performance vehicles), Akrapovic Exhaust Systems will provide a distinct performance and aesthetic advantage to your ride.
Recently, SportsCarBoutique is excited to announce that we are offering one of Akrapovic’s most recent, exclusive pieces: Their Evolution Line Exhaust System made specifically for the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant (C8).
