The Mercedes SLS-AMG coupe/roadster is a car that doesn’t need an aftermarket exhaust to sound better, as it already produces a fantastic cacophony of brutish racket from that 6.2 litre v8. It is a serious car, with some serious stats. In fact, it boasts figures such as 0-100kmh in just 3.2 seconds, 622 hp at 7400rpm, and 468 lb-ft of torque at 5500 rpm. What a machine!
The Akrapovic “cat back” exhaust system makes use of a fantastic base to work off, and makes it even better. Compared to the stock exhaust, you’ll save 12.4 kg of weight, and in the process of this, you’ll gain 13.4Nm of torque and 9.1kW of power. And the best part is, these awesome figures don’t come at a cost to the sound of the original car. I almost forgot, the exhaust also comes with a wireless kit for exhaust valve control, allowing you to tune the exhaust to your liking.
When this car is fitted with the Akrapovic exhaust, it still sounds like a snarling, ferocious monster screaming it’s lungs out! The sound of this thing driving by resembles that of a classic WWII fighter doing a low-level flyby, which in simpler terms means that the sound created is a deep, sonorous drone that resonates beautifully in the air. Have a look what I mean.
