Default Akrapovic System for the C7

The Akrapovic Slip-On & Evolution Titanium systems are now available. We are currently accepting pre-orders for both units.

Akrapovic Evolution System (Shown in the first three images below):
The Akrapovič Evolution Line system takes exhaust tuning to the next level. Featuring mufflers and link-pipes made from high-grade titanium to dramatically reduce the overall weight, the system provides more power, lowers back pressure, enhances throttle response, and increases torque.

With four valves, the first pair operates in four-cylinder mode and the second set comes into action following the driver’s specifications. With an electronic device developed by Akrapovič engineers for the five standard GM modes—Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport, and Track—the system is perfectly matched to operate with the car’s drive mode selector.

This produces an even greater range of options for the driver to fully experience the amazing sound of the car. The Evolution Line system, with a new X-pipe, provides even greater performance compared to the Slip-On Line system, and provides a pure race-note soundtrack for this stunning engine, with the enhanced sound characteristics of the V8 configuration and without any drone—just pure enjoyment.

Four large-diameter carbon fibre tailpipes with titanium inners complete the appearance of the Evolution Line perfectly, making it stand out as something special.


Akrapovic Slip-On System (Shown in the last two images below):
The Akrapovič Slip-On Line system is the first step in exhaust tuning. Crafted from high-grade titanium, which considerably reduces the weight in comparison to the stock system, it has been perfectly designed to fit directly onto the existing link pipes.

The system increases power, provides better throttle response, and improves torque, and also conjures up an amazing sound from the naturally-aspirated V8 engine.

The Slip-On Line system has four valves, designed for the first pair to operate in four-cylinder mode and the second set to come into action according to the driver’s specifications. The system is developed to be compatible with the car’s drive mode selector, and Akrapovič engineers have developed an electronic device to drive the exhaust valves for each mode—Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport, and Track—giving the driver an even greater opportunity to enjoy the sound of the Akrapovič Slip-On Line across the whole spectrum of the car’s performance. It’s topped off by four large-diameter carbon fibre tailpipes with titanium inners, to make the Slip-On clearly recognizable as an exhaust that means business.

If the Akrapovič Slip-On system replaces the GM NPP exhaust system, the Slip-On Line maintains the valve regulation of the NPP system.

If the Corvette C7 is not equipped with a GM Performance exhaust (NPP exhaust), then the Control Kit (P-HF886) and Valve Actuator Kit (P-HF868) are mandatory. For Corvette C7s with a Performance exhaust (NPP exhaust), neither the Control Kit (P-HF886) nor the Valve Actuator Kit (P-HF868) is needed.

So the control kit allows for factory like NPP like response from the different driver modes? I have NPP in mine but I'd think this controller might be something interesting to those non NPP car owners who wanna add NPP functionality with stock pipes this kit replaces. If the controller price is reasonable, it gives value to the original exhaust. After all, it's cheaper to upgrade to this if you can sell your original stuff.

The controller kit is approximately $500, the actuators are $500 each (need 2) and then there is the cost of these titanium exhaust systems. They are pricey (to me) at $4-5k.

But they do look fantastic, especially those tips.

The weight savings is a nice bonus and those tips really do look great, it will give the car a very high end look!

In the sound clip the stock exhaust is obviously taken while on a chassis Dyno (all you hear is the roller over the exhaust)..... Then the other clip of your exhaust is nice and clear (not on Dyno)..... At least you can give an accurate comparison instead of providing that.......

Nice power increase compared to longtubes but leaving the market behind with choice of construction materials........not a competitive price point compared to other quality exhaust systems.

The Akra exhaust sounds amazing. But I agree that you should re-record the stock NPP exhaust sounds. They're not as clear and is muffled by the sound of the dyno roller.

Cool, but sneaking into ECS territory. If a gang war breaks out, this is like bringing a knife to a gun fight.

Does this work with the Corsa X pipe if I just buy the slip on system?
