EVOLUTION SYSTEM Stainless steel exhaust system with resonator and rear muffler
The Mini is considered a car that always brings a smile to ones face with its playful look and particularly its position on the road, which is reminiscent of driving a go-kart. The engineers from Akrapovióå_ prepared solutions for the little devil that further increase the performance of the Mini Cooper S and the Cooper S Cabrio as well make it sound even more appealing. Just by looking at the rear, we can see that it’s an Akrapovióå_ – namely, the rear boasts a dual exhaust system outlet of a larger diameter, shaped like racing exhausts. The homologated stainless steel aftermarket Evolution exhaust system with an integrated resonator and end muffler is equipped with adjustable tail pipes made of titanium or carbon fiber. The most demanding customers can also upgrade the Evolution exhaust system by using a down pipe with catalyst.
EC Type Approval is valid for engine type N14B16A
The Akrapovióå_ exhaust system also improves sound characteristic, reduces drone and vibrations and makes driving even more enjoyable. The Evolution system, with the optional down pipe, greatly improves the motor’s performance at all revolutions, which is evident from the enclosed diagram. The system offers an additional 8 HP and 7 Nm. Additionally, improvements to weight are not negligible, since the Akrapovióå_ exhaust system, made of stainless steel, together with the optional down pipe, weights 4 kilograms less than a stock exhaust system.

I had Leo install this and the Akra DP on my 2012 MINI JCW Coupe (R58). It has completely transformed my car. The sound is pure music. It is not harsh by any means. I would even say that it is more mellow inside the cabin than the stock JCW exhaust. Behind the car sounds like a low rumble of thunder! It is tuned in such a way that just melts your ears. The added benefit of the lighter weight and less restricted flow means a couple more HP. The throttle response is improved as well. Leo did an excellent job with the install and with the carbon fiber tips, it just looks sexy! This is one thing I should have done on my car a lot sooner! This is worth the price.
