Beyond the hand-crafted detail that is standard at AWE Tuning, this one packs a little something special: The R8 V10 SwitchPath™ Exhaust incorporates a proprietary mechanical valve system that controls sound volume:
Under part throttle and idle, valves route exhaust gasses through integrated mufflers, keeping sound levels civilized.
At 3/4 throttle application and more, the valves automatically open and the system goes into a more aggressive, "straight pipe" mode flowing primarily via both the 2 ¼" part throttle and 2 ½" full throttle channels.
An in-cabin mounted electronic SwitchPath™ Remote toggles the mechanical valves between "normal" and "straight pipe mode." Practical.
In "Normal" mode, the system's valves are controlled by throttle position, while in "Straight Pipe Mode" the system gets aggressive from the start (ideal for racing and track usage).
Civil. And disobedient. All in one.
The SwitchPath™ Exhaust is truly the ideal system for the R8 owner that wants it all. Quiet when you want it, aggresive when you’re feeling it. The ultimate compliment for one of the finest supercars on the road today.
Please note, this exhaust system is for racing use only.
