An incredible amount of engineering goes in to Akrapovics systems. They scan the whole car, in this case an R56, and then use cutting edge CAD technology and 3D printing to produce models which they use to prioritise the systems characteristics including sound, power and style. Once completed the systems are put through vigorous testing processes, which include up to 200 runs on their dyno and many miles that allow them to fine tune their systems to maximize power. At this stage the systems are then TUV approved and put in to production.
The tailpipes are not neglected either, Akrapovic have developed a unique resin that can exceed the heat tolerance of stainless steel. This means it is very resistant to high temperatures as well as corrosion and dirt from the road. Lastly, the Akrapovic logo and part numbers are laser engraved on to the pipes.
The system not only improves sound characteristics but also reduces drone and vibrations and makes the whole driving experience more enjoyable. The system improves the performance of the Cooper S engine, which is evident from the power run graph pictured. With the cat-back system and the standard downpipe the system produced an extra 2.4 bhp and 5.6Nm of torque while weighing 2.3Kg less than the standard MINI exhaust.
