Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) is an ultra-light material, approximately 50-percent lighter than titanium, and it is regularly used in extreme racing and aerospace solutions, but Akrapovič has pushed the boundaries of exhaust system manufacturing once again and developed parts that are now available to all, and not just for specialized fields.
CMC can withstand intensely high peak temperatures of 1,000 °C, making it an ideal material for the hot gases emitted from high-performance engines. With the use of CMC, Akrapovič has applied the highest level of technology available to create parts that take an immense amount of time and effort to produce, are unique, and have a visually striking appearance with an assertive look that perfectly matches the material’s extreme racing heritage.
This new product from Akrapovič is just the latest in a long line of advances from the Slovenian company, and it will certainly cement its position at the forefront of premier exhaust technology and manufacturing.
The first product for the open market from Akrapovič featuring Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) will be a Rear Carbon Fiber Diffuser with Ceramic Composite Tail Pipe Set for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991.2). The stunning hand-crafted carbon fiber diffuser is the perfect accompaniment for these exotic space-age CMC tailpipes. The entire package gives the rear of the car an imposing look and – although designed for track use only – the appearance of this unique item shows the car means business, even when it is parked in the pit lane.
This exquisite pairing of the Rear Carbon Fiber Diffuser with Ceramic Composite Tail Pipe Set is limited to just 20 sets, with each one featuring a unique serial number between 1 and 20 to attest to its rarity and authenticity. Every customer that purchases a set will receive a certificate confirming that it is a limited edition, adding to the entire attractive package.
