Ragazzon is an Italian exhaust manufacturer who makes top of the range performance exhausts for MINI Cooper, Cooper S and JCW models across all generations.
Founded in the 1980s by Enzo Ragazzon using his knowledge from working in the steel industry started production making standardised exhaust silencers. Ragazzon quickly moved from this and into the performance sector making stainless steel EEC & TUV approved exhausts for the European market, including making the very first duplex exhaust (two tailpipes right and left) for the Fiat Punto GT, which was also tested and type-approved.
Fast forward to today and Ragazzon pride themselves on creating some of the worlds finest stainless steel. All exhausts are built based on one of three designs, Evo Line, Top Line or H2 Flow Line.
The Evo Line is used for downpipes, centre pipes and cat backs with centre tailpipe exits. The whole range is tig welded and made from Inox Aisi 304 type steel that is EEC approved with Ragazzon downpipes also including FIA approved CSAI type-approved Catalysts.
The Top Line manufacturing process is for performance exhausts with rear silencers that have complex double or quadruple tailpipe exits. The Top Line rear silencers are made from 100% Inox steel that creates a sporty growl that pops and burbles on overrun whilst also improving performance for your MINI.
Finally, the H2 Line from Ragazzon is their latest innovation in exhaust manufacturing using “Hydroforming Technology” to create a product, made from a single portion of round, inox steel pipe which, through a sophisticated high-pressure plant acting on a mould, gives form to the outer silencer body, respecting predetermined measurements and dimensions. The benefits of this production process include a reduction in weight due to less material and welds being used and an improvement in durability.
