Today we had the epic Audi R8 in the workshop for a performance exhaust system, supply and installation.
This customer's brand choice was none other than the prestigious, UK-manufactured Quicksilver Exhausts.
Specifically, the Audi R8 V10 GT (and 'Facelift') Titan Sport Exhaust with Sound Architect™ Option (2012-13)
- Wonderful deep muscle-rich sound
- Valves for optimum sound
- Titanium silencer casing for weight reduction
- Improved throttle response
- Retains original tips to keep the look
Recommended retail price as of December 2022: £3,992.00
R-Tec Auto Design and RTECSHOP Sale price: £3,412.80
Installation time, typical for rear-engined supercars, was an eye-watering 7 hours, so the customer left it with us and went to the local cinema! If you are planning on leaving a car with us, click here for our mini-guide on things to do near R-Tec Auto Design.
With our experienced senior technician on the job, the removal of the rear end was no problem, and we could get stuck in.
The comparison between the stock Audi exhaust system and the Quicksilver exhaust system for the R8 is astounding. It's no wonder there is a weight saving - Look at the size of that standard system.
The quad pipes are replaced with larger-bore dual pipes, and the silencer backbox is vastly reduced in size, allowing exhaust gases to flow faster and more freely on their way out, producing a head-turning roar.
- Original exhaust weight: 37kg (81.5 lbs)
- Quicksilver Sport system weight: 13.2kg (29 lbs)
- Quicksilver Supersport system weight: 10.2kg (22.4 lbs)
Quicksilver Valve control offers two definitive options.
Sport - Designed for the every day and long distances, refined yet sporty when required.
SuperSport - Higher pitched, more presence throughout the rev range.
QuickSilver can supply a Titan 'SuperSport' exhaust system for your R8 GT.
The result is a much lighter weight system that has more efficient flow and shows a noticeable improvement in throttle response whilst enhancing that sports car sound.
Our system includes the valves and offers an enhanced experience. At lower engine speeds it produces a wonderful deep tone, with volume and pitch increasing in direct proportion to rpm climaxing in a robust race car howl at the red line.
This system is recommended for the true enthusiast who wants to optimise the experience.
The system has a Titanium silencer and thin-gauge Stainless Steel tube to achieve a combination of the lightest possible weight with strength and durability.
Here is a video of an R8 V10 on Quicksilver's YouTube channel.
Skip to 30 seconds in to hear that V10 roar all the way to the redline!
