Capristo exhaust systems are engineered and manufactured utilizing advanced 3d laser-scanning, cad design, digital prototyping, and CNC-bending/milling at our factory in Germany. Each system is made of high-grade t309 (1.4828) stainless steel and hand-polished to a mirror finish. After extensive research, this specific alloy was chosen for its sonic resonance properties, low weight, and durability which are close to the properties of Inconel (used in f1).
The iconic Capristo Valved Exhaust System offers the best of both worlds through its capability to produce an aggressive exhaust note under acceleration, and a more subdued sound for city driving. The Audi R8 (v8) Capristo Exhaust system will provide a 26hp increase to your engine output.
This feature is possible using vacuum-actuated valve flaps that open and close depending on driving conditions and input from the driver. At lower engine speeds and during cruise operation the valves are closed and produce a deeper exhaust note. At wide-open throttle, the valves open releasing the full symphony of the engine.
The exhaust valves are backpressure-controlled and user programmable via the included ces-3 control module. The programmable control unit provides 3 modes operated via a remote key fob cruise exhaust valves open at higher rpm's, sport exhaust valves open at lower rpm's and hard acceleration & open exhaust valves remain open. Both the cruise and sport mode can be individually programmed for specific backpressure allowances to determine when the exhaust valves open. This allows precise control of the exhaust based on the drivers' personal tastes and tolerance.
The exhaust system is designed to be installed directly into existing OEM mounting points
This is the ORIGINAL Capristo R8 V8 exhaust design that came out BEFORE the X-pipe system. The sound is more comparable to a classic American V8 roar than the screaming F1 wail of the X-Pipe System. This is the last Series 1 Exhaust known to be available. Your opportunity to set your R8 apart from the crowd with a piece of Capristo history
