Speaking of which, the company that builds this exhaust system comes from Taiwan. They’ve now made a video that showcases the aural effects of their development. To be more precise, this is a complete setup that includes ultra high flow catless pipes, a front pipe, a mid x-pipe, as well as a catback Valvetronic muffler with quad tips.
The last bit means the exhaust has valves that allow the driver to control the extent to which the Audi-lifted engine will express its feelings and emotions.
Speaking of which, this is the 2.0 TFSI unit used by the A4/A5 and the Q5, with the latter also sharing its platform with the Macan. In stock form, the engine delivers 237 PS from 5,000 rpm and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) from 1,500 lb-ft. In Macan fashion, the unit is matted to a PDK double-clutch gearbox. As a result, the crossover deals with the 0 to 100 KM/H (62 MPH) sprint in 6.9 seconds, while its top speed sits at 137 MPH (223 KM/H).
Sure, investing in the tech side of a Macan that was supposed to be an entry-level model doesn’t sound like the most logical decision.
