Audi to Offer Akrapovic-Designed ‘Audi Sport’ Exhaust System for RS 7 performance

Whether it be at our friendly neighborhood Audi dealer, or the counter of an In-N-Out, we’re quite fond of hidden menus.  Sometimes found in the form of a special color (like our former Suzuka Grey S4 long-term car), other times merely some subtle badging (our current Project allroad comes to mind), we feel its imperative to go a bit deeper than what’s available in the online configurator.  Earlier today, we received a tip for one such hidden menu item, said to be available in the written order guide for Audi’s upcoming RS 7 performance.

For the sum of $9,350, Audi will outfit your new RS 7 performance with an ‘Audi Sport’ branded exhaust system designed and manufactured by motorsport partner Akrapovič.  Constructed as a private label system (not to be confused with Akra’s off-the-shelf aftermarket kit), the exhaust is said to come in at roughly 20lbs less than the stock system, and offer a minor bump in power.  Regardless of specifics, it’s an impressive step by the brand to bring a motorsports partner onboard to capture some of the extremely lucrative aftermarket potential.

At the moment information is quite sparse, but those interested should contact their dealer for additional information.
