Audi R8 ‘Titan’ Sports Exhaust - A Titanium Silencer reduces exhaust weight by 41 lbs
A Supercar sound may be the main reason most drivers choose a Sports Exhaust system for their Audi R8.
With QuickSilver they will also appreciate the performance benefits and, in particular, the huge weight saving of over 18 kgs (40lbs), taken from the very rear of the car.
Most R8 owners will have bought their car for fun and so behind the wheel they will enjoy an enhanced experience, the sound being such an important part of driving a high performance sportscar.
The rise and fall through the gears the blips on down-change, the pops on the overrun – all add to the fun.
The QuickSilver system has a Titanium silencer and thin-gauge stainless steel tube to achieve a combination of the lightest possible weight with strength and durability.
At lower engine speeds it produces a wonderful deep tone, with volume and pitch increasing in direct proportion to rpm climaxing in a robust racecar howl at the red line.
QuickSilver enable personalisation of sound & appearance and an improvement in performance by using components and materials that are more expensive than the OE specification.
The QuickSilver system is a ‘bolt on’ fit, designed to complement the original specification without compromising emissions or reliability. It comes with QuickSilver’s usual 25 year guarantee.
