Akrapovič Swiss Importer Shows First Titanium Exhaust for New Volkswagen GTI

Slovenian exhaust manufacturer Akrapovič has been making a name for itself for years with its lightweight titanium exhaust systems for primarily motorcycles, exotic sports cars and even Le Mans racers like the Audi R18 e-tron quattro. Perhaps even more interesting to our readers though is what appears to be like a move toward Volkswagen with a new system for the Golf GTI Mk7.

Though an official news release or specs have yet to be released from Akrapovič, the firm’s Swiss distributor Carex has fitted a first system to this blue Mk7 that was on display at the Geneva Motor Show.

Akrapovič confirmed the system if a full-titanium Slip-On Line for the GTI, and clearly you can see it benefits from the usual Akrapovic premium touches like a carbon fiber exhaust tip printed with the company’s two-color logo.

Of course, the Akrapovič exhaust system wasn’t the only modification on the Carex GTI. Being a multi-line distributor, the car also benefitted from H&R coilovers and wore gold BBS RX-R wheels shod in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT tires.
