BMW M5 with Akrapovic Exhaust Destroys the Silence

Take one part V8 engine, two parts turbocharging and add a dab of Akrapovic spice. Mix them all together in a bowl of German performance saloon, and what do you get?
You get a brand new BMW M5 that’s got the explosive soundtrack from a Akrapovic Evolution exhaust system. These are the same guys that make the exhaust for the M6 pace car, so when they say their system adds 10 horsepower and reduces weight by 12 kg over the stock system, we tend to take their word for it.

“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 our foundry,” Akrapovic says.

The system improves performance not only at the top end, as it gives the M5 more power and torque through the whole range of rpms by lowering back pressure.
