The Akrapovic Slip-On Line exhaust for the LP 580-2 and LP 610-4 Lamborghini Huracan does more than just amp up the aural symphony of the 5.2L V10 with its specially-designed x-pipe hiding inside its muffler.
Being constructed of titanium, it shaves a substantial 45 lbs off the back of the car, improving the weight balance and giving the car a handling edge over its factory counterpart. Akrapovic also claims a 14 horsepower and 21 lb-ft torque gain as a result of better exhaust flow.
After having an 800+ horsepower VF Engineering supercharger system installed by us last year, this 610-4 returned from the Pennsylvania countryside.
Let’s take a look at the installation…
With the rear bumper assembly removed, access becomes a breeze. Here the factory exhaust has already been pulled. From this angle, the VF Engineering supercharger unit is hidden from sight.
As you can already tell by just looking, the Akrapovic system will weight less and doesn’t have as nearly as much surface area devoted to the muffler. Factor in its titanium construction and that 45 lb weight loss is easy to comprehend.
Note the location of the vacuum-operated valves. Akrapovic locates theirs closer in and provides the necessary hardware for the lines to be connected.
The factory heat shielding slips over the new Akrapovic unit without the need for modification.
The tips on a Huracan don’t actually attach to the exhaust pipe. Instead, they are bolted to the bumper assembly. Akrapovic follows suit, with their tips bolting in the same way. This opens up the possibility to running the Akrapovic or another aftermarket system while keeping a factory look.
However, the Akrapovic titanium tips, shrouded in carbon fiber, are a vast improvement over stock, and lets everyone know what its packing.
