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 aftermarket muffler and exhaust pipe 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 aftermarket mufflers and exhaust pipes 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. Shop below for Akrapovic mufflers, exhausts, sound kits and tail pipe sets.


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.


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

Renault is a French multinational automobile manufacturer that was established in 1899 and in 2013 Renault was the eleventh biggest automaker in the world by production volume, with 50.5% of sales coming outside of Europe. LMPerformance carries parts for 25 models of Renaults and can satisfy your Renault car part needs with their capacious array of car specific parts and also universal parts.

Car specific clutch kits are available for your Renault 11, 19 I, 408, 409, Laguna, R9, Super 5, Clio I, Encore, GTA, II, K. and Alliance from the prestigious manufacturer SPEC in high performance and racing clutches and flywheels with kits from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5. You might ask yourself whether a performance clutch is necessary on your Renault and this might help you make that determination. When the power levels or temperatures felt by the clutch system are greater than the levels at which your clutch disc can function you need a performance clutch and this can occur when your clutch is getting inordinate use and too much heat that will over timel begin to fail to grab. As the disc temperature rises, it works less and less, until it ultimately fails cool and if between shifts it has a hard time grabbing, even when at operating temperatures, it’s likely that the clamping force isn’t high enough for the power levels and you need a performance clutch.

If you need more power, consider installing a cold air intake kit on your Renault. LMPerformance has model specific cold air kits for your Renault 19, 21, GT, Clio, TWINGO, Laguna, MAGANE from the prestigious manufacturer K & N. Cold air intakes are a fairly inexpensive modification, provide for easy installation and assist in the movement of cooler into the engine for combustion, affording more oxygen and consequently more power to your engine. Not only does a cold air intake reduce the air temperature, but it also increases airflow by removing the box surrounding the air filter and instead using large diameter intake tubes that are smoother, have less bends and are often wider than the original factory ones affording uninterrupted airflow to your engine. Kits like the 57 Series Gen II Air Intake Kits (FIPK‘S) by K & N represent a dramatic improvement over a K&N O/E replacement filter alone since they use only non-metallic rotationally molded tubes that can scale down air temperature and curtail intake sound that used to come over a metal tube. K&N Air Intake Kits virtually does away with the restriction of air by replacing the air filter and the entire air path to the engine so that the aerodynamically engineered tube drives a incredible amount of air into an engine, which translates into POWER. Just put your model and year Renault into the selection boxes on the LMPerformance web site and find out which K&N cold air intake is right for you and also find out if it is legal in your state.
