The engineering masterpiece in the form of the new M TwinPower Turbo M5 has been a welcome challenge to the Akrapovič R&D department, which is responsible for developing truly amazing exhaust system that offer more power, weighs less, and have an EC type-approval stamp at the same time. The new Evolution exhaust system consists of newly developed dual-outlet mufflers with exhaust valves, flow-optimized pipes, and a unique cast titanium x-shaped part with resonators. The x-pipe, valves, and flange assembly are produced in Akrapovič foundry.
The Evolution system lowers the back pressure and gives the M5 more power and torque through the whole range of RPMs. The Evolution system offers an even greater difference in weight, improving the power-to-weight ratio. Gains are achieved without removing the catalytic converters.
While developing this system, Akrapovič especially focused on sound. An M5 with the Evolution system delivers a deep, aggressive roar when driven hard, coaxing bangs out of the unique tail pipes when shifting and going off the throttle. To top it all off, the Evolution system is drone free and works well with the M5’s Active Noise Cancellation system—just like the valve system, which is regulated through the M5’s settings.
The Evolution system:
- Titanium link pipes with resonators
- Titanium muffler
- Titanium tail pipes
- Carbon Fiber tail pipes
- Maximum Power – 10hp
- Maximum Torque- 17tq
- Weight Reduction – minus 27.1lbs
- Static Noise Level – 94dB at 4875rpm
