Mercedes SLS AMG with Akrapovic Exhaust Seen in Nürburgring

Giancarlo Perlas May 15, 2014

Akrapovic, a famous manufacturer of exhausts for motorcycles and four-wheel vehicles, has recently fitted a Mercedes SLS AMG with its signature product. The result was a louder than stock sound for the Mercedes SLS AMG car.

The work of the Slovenian manufacturer and tuner was showcased at the Gran Turismo Events in the Nürburgring race track. Given that the car already has a 6.3-liter V8 engine with astounding noise, it was further amplified with the Akrapovic exhaust.

In the video posted by NM2255 Car HD Videos in YouTube, which can be watched above, the enhanced noise of the Mercedes SLS AMG with Akrapovic modification can be likened with the noise of the previous F1 cars at full speed. Then, its sound at low speeds is somewhat similar to low growl or purr of a huge predatory hunter stalking its prey.

Mercedes SLS AMG Specs

The Mercedes SLS AMG used in the video is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine capable of giving off 571 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The power of the vehicle is distributed through its seven-speed double clutch transmission. The sprint of the car from zero to 60 mph only takes 3.8 seconds to complete. Lastly, its top speed is electronically limited to 197 mph.
