Thanks to almost 40 years of experience, Borla can pride itself on being one of the most accomplished aftermarket companies out there. Their bread and butter are exhaust systems and, as fate would have it, Borla’s latest product is for Aston Martin owners.
While Aston Martin is slowly waving goodbye to natural aspiration, Borla Performance Industries focuses on the 5.9-liter V12 tower-of-power that put Aston Martin on the map in the 1990s, 2000s, and the first half of the 2010s. Part number 11932 in the catalogue is what’s what and it costs $2,999.99 if you buy it directly from Borla.

More to the point, this is a rear section exhaust system Borla of the S-Type genre. Nameplates eligible for this sonorous upgrade come in the form of the model years 2005 through 2015 Aston Martin DB9, DBS, and Vanquish. When we tested the Vanquish, the grand tourer with sporting credentials seemed loud enough. With a Borla S-Type exhaust system, it’s pretty clear that things will get a little bit louder.

According to the aftermarket company, the new unit “highlights the rich sound of the awesome Aston Martin 5.9-liter V12 engine.” The peeps at Borla Performance Industries also mention that the unique muffler design delivers not only enhanced performance, but also “a throaty, aggressive sound under acceleration.”

The entire system is built from aerospace-grade T-304 stainless steel and it retains the factory exhaust valve technology of the freely aspirated V12 engine.

Furthermore, the 2.5-inch diameter of the exhaust ensures good fit. Just like every other exhaust system from Borla, this one carries a one million mile warranty, which is another way of saying that Borla is 100 percent sure about what it's doing.

In other words, that’s 20,000 miles (32,186 kilometers) per year over a span of 50 years. This promise, dear reader, is speaking volumes about how high-quality this aftermarket exhaust system is.
