Corvette Online would like to welcome Akrapovic to our family of site sponsors! If you’ve ever seen one of their exhaust systems in person, you will know what we mean when we say that Akrapovic’s Corvette exhaust systems are as much a work of art as they are a high-functioning performance part. Akrapovic’s exhaust systems for the C6 Corvette Z06 and ZR1 can be had in stainless, or ultra-lightweight titanium that can save you a whopping 33 pounds when replacing your stock system. No detail is too small, and their exhaust systems offer you cool features like real carbon fiber exhaust tips, and the option for a push-button dual mode exhaust that gives you wide open performance whenever the mood strikes you.
Akrapovic was founded in 1990 by Igor Akrapovic, an accomplished motorcycle tuner and racer, when he started making his own exhaust systems for his race bikes when the low-quality systems that were available couldn’t meet his own personal standards for quality and perfection. The company started small, and quickly grew into the premier exhaust system supplier for professional motorcycle racing.
In 2008 Akrapovic got involved with the automobile industry in a big way, by taking the same superior quality and excellence their motorcycle systems were famous for, and applying it to exhaust systems for several Porsche race teams. Today, Akrapovic’s seat of operations is their nearly 140,000 square foot facility located in Ivancna Gorica, Slovenia. In addition to building top notch exhaust systems for the world’s finest cars and sport bikes, Akrapovic also deals in high-end, specialty carbon fiber fabrication, and can even make one-off titanium parts in their foundry.
