Slip-On exhaust system for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Coupé
Slip-On exhaust system for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Coupé/Spyder
An Italian icon, Lamborghini, brought forth the potent Gallardo. How can a 550+ horsepower, mid-engine V10-powered Italian Supercar be improved upon, you might ask? The answer: lower weight, more power, and an unbelievable change in engine sound. AkrapoviÌ_å_ provides all of these and more to this amazing road car.
Constructed from our unique titanium** alloy, our precision-engineered system provides several performance advantages over the stock exhaust. First, due to the mid-engine design, the exhaust system must be located at the very rear of the vehicle. Removing weight from this area is key to improving handling. Our titanium Slip-On system for the Gallardo reduces weight in this critical area by an astounding 18 kilograms / 40 pounds.*
Improving exhaust-flow dynamics was another design goal. By developing a specialized muffler shape and computer-designed inlets/outlets, we’ve extracted 15 horsepower* and 27 Nm / 20 lbs-ft* of torque more from an already potent engine. With the drop in backpressure, our system is a perfect basis for additional engine tuning.
One of the most beloved aspects of the Lamborghini experience is the sound. To complement our muffler design, we’ve added our well-known cast titanium “bi-mode” exhaust valves. Both the housings and butterfly valves for the bi-mode system are made from a proprietary titanium mix and cast in our in-house foundry. All of this combined creates a virtual symphony emanating from the large displacement V10.
The bi-mode system gives the exhaust a dual personality. At lower engine speeds and during cruise operation, the valves are closed. This provides a deeper and sharper exhaust note, but subdued enough for daily use without any concerns about drone. At wide-open throttle, the valves open, releasing the full fury of the engine. By adding the optional wireless kit, which includes an active in-car control unit, the driver can override the valves and open them fully at any time. Once opened, a racing-inspired sound level is produced from idle to redline.
The crowning touch to all of this is a beautiful set of “dry carbon fiber” exhaust outlets featuring vented titanium inner sleeves. Carbon fiber components are designed and manufactured by our on-site production facility. They are vacuum-bagged and autoclaved to create a part that is both striking and incredibly durable.
This system fits the LP550-2 Coupé (2009-2011) and LP560-4 Coupé/Spyder (2008-2011).

**A note about titanium: Not all titanium alloys are created equal. AkrapoviÌ_å_ titanium exhaust systems are made from a proprietary titanium alloy. Although our alloy is considerably more expensive and difficult to form than the more common commercial alloys, it ensures a product that’s substantially more durable, dimensionally stable, and heat resistant. Unparalleled in quality, all AkrapoviÌ_å_ products are designed without compromise to guarantee the highest in customer satisfaction.
1) When installing an aftermarket AkrapoviÌ_å_ exhaust system, which was developed for use on closed tracks, we recommend remapping the ECU in order to prevent potential “engine check light” warning signals.
2) This product is intended to be used only on racing vehicles on closed courses. It is not for use on roads or vehicles otherwise subject to emission-control requirements. In California, this product should not be used on any vehicle that is registered or licensed for use on public roads.
