About Akrapovic

Akrapovic is a pioneer in the innovative use of titanium and super-alloys. The brand is at the forefront of carbon-fiber component development and production. Akrapovic exhaust systems are renowned for increasing performance, unmistakable sound, innovative design, lightweight technology, quality workmanship, and durability.

Founded in Slovenia by former motorcycle racer Igor Akrapovic , the brand has grown to international prominence, winning major world championship titles and setting the highest design standards, which have led to multiple Red Dot awards (for outstanding international product design and communication).

A pioneer in its field, Akrapovic is widely recognized as a highly innovative materials technology company. The brand is synonymous with the highest level of design, performance enhancement and the creation of an unmistakable deeply resonant exhaust sound. The company’s products are designed and manufactured for motorcycles and performance cars by a passionate and highly-skilled workforce of over 1000 employees using the latest technology, processes and finest materials. The Racing R&D department works with dozens of racing teams. Over 100 world champions have already relied on Akrapovic exhaust systems. And this is just the beginning of a long exciting ride.

About Akrapovic

Racing has always been the lifeblood of Akrapovic and, as the company reached its 25thanniversary in 2016, it also celebrated its 100th world championship title, a feat achieved when Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) won the MotoGP championship in 2015. The technical ability and support Akrapovic provides to teams competing in MotoGP, EWC, WorldSBK, MXGP, Enduro, Supercross, Dakar rally, DTM, and FIA WEC give them the competitive edge, which follows the same heritage and know-how that is transferred into road and off-road systems.

Increased performance, user-friendly controllable power delivery, signature sound, and durable lightweight exhausts are all directly related to the research, development, and testing that every Akrapovic exhaust is subjected to in the racing arena, giving it a pedigree that is rarely matched.

The company operates from state-of-the-art production facilities and technologically advanced R&D facilities in Slovenia, which include an in-house titanium foundry, a metallurgical laboratory, several motorcycle and car dynamometers, and high-tech production machinery. Akrapovic has over 1000 employees and markets its products in more than 80 countries worldwide.

Akrapovic Materials

The company made a great leap forward in 2009, when it opened its own in-house cutting-edge titanium foundry; it is still the only exhaust system supplier with its own in-house foundry. The titanium foundry facility participates in all phases of the investment casting process, from wax injection to the final inspection of the cast parts with X-ray radioscopy and other control procedures, such as chemical analyses, mechanical properties, and dimensional accuracy.

Akrapovic has a fully equipped metallurgical laboratory for testing the material properties and quality of products. The company believes that metallography is a great tool for understanding the limits of exhaust systems and materials. They achieve all of this using exclusive in-house knowledge and technologies, and more than twenty years of experience in processing special materials for exhaust systems.

The company’s exhaust systems are crafted from proprietary titanium alloys. These are three times stronger than other “commercial” alloys available. Their high quality and strength make them more difficult to form than common alloys, but they ensure products that are substantially more durable, dimensionally more stable, and have significantly increased heat resistance.

Its carbon-fiber components are produced in-house with temperature-resistant carbon-fiber resins. Through innovative production techniques, the company can produce parts with very complex shapes in various sizes. These hand crafted high-quality materials are used as parts of exhaust systems such as carbon-fiber muffler outer sleeves and heatshields on motorcycles, and the appearance of a car can be further improved with optional handcrafted carbon-fiber rear diffusers and carbon-fiber tailpipes.

The family of nickel-based superalloys that are alloyed with chrome, molybdenum, and niobium are also commercially known as Inconel alloys. These kinds of alloys have exceptional mechanical properties at extremely low and high temperatures. They are also extremely resistant to corrosion and corrosive acids (both surface resistance and at the crystal level) and have very high oxidation resistance.

Newest Akrapovic Car Parts for Your BMW M3

BMW

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your BMW

If you own a BMW, the luxury German car, then we know you appreciate the finer things in life and want top quality performance out of your car and we want to help you do that with the prestigious array of performance parts available on our web site. Parts like those from the inimitable SPEC Clutch line with Clutch Kits from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and the Mini Twin and in the SPEC Super Twin for the M6, M5 and M3. We know you don’t want a cookie cutter clutch but one that satisfies your driving needs and the stage selection of the SPEC clutch is determined primarily by use, rather it be for street use or more high performance use such as racing or autocross. and by materials used to manufacture the various clutches such as molded carbon KEVLAR, full faced Kevlar with steel backing, carbon semi-metallic on one side, carbon semi-metallic 6 puck sprung or not sprung, carbon semi-metallic with a double sprung hub, solid hub with 8 rivets or full-metallic disc- all decided by you, the driver. The pressure plate in your BMW is the driving force between your engine's power and the drive line and if you are doing intense driving you need a performance pressure plate like the one from SPEC for increased holding power. Another great product from SPEC, the billet flywheel exceeds the industry standard of .010 tolerances by a considerable amount with the .001 tolerance guaranteeing ideal balance and flat bedding and can be rebuilt and have a replaceable steel friction plate and they are a lightweight alternative to your factory flywheel.

Several estimable exhaust kit options are available for your BMW and one such brand is CORSA Performance, a renowned manufacturer of aftermarket performance exhausts. CORSA Performance features straight unrestricted flow mufflers and are available depending on application in 3 different sound levels to suit your taste. For example, CORSA'S BMW M3 exhaust system features a patented non-restrictive straight-through design resulting in the reduction of back pressure and freeing up much needed power all resulting in improved horsepower and torque. Since there is no drone because of CORSA’S own RSC Reflective Sound Cancellation technology, you never need to worry about the that annoyance just expect great sound.

Another very popular choice by BMW enthusiasts are the B&B (Billy Boat) exhausts which are made right here in the U.S. in Arizona. They feature 304 mandrel bent Stainless steel and come in several muffler styles such as the Bullets, PRT, and Fusion. B&B tunes each muffler to match its application for the best possible performance gain and sound quality combination. Billy Boat recently started to incorporate the PRT technology into all of their muffler systems. PRT Technology allows true straight through exhaust passage under aggressive driving, though a mellow sound is emitted at cruising speed thanks to the unique Purge Chamber. The use of two distinct packing materials and several S.C.C.’S inside the BILLY BOAT muffler enable them to create a harmonious sound that will have heads turning when you drive by.
