BMW M2 Coupe – M Performance vs. Akrapovic Exhaust Systems
German carmaker BMW released the M2 Coupe last year, the model gradually becoming one of the most important rides in the tuning world, and that because of its extremely advanced aerodynamics and evolutionary design.
The car`s body style is fully tweaked with the M Performance Parts, making it extremely lightweight and increasing its performance figures. It was also fitted with the M Performance exhaust system in some markets, also allowing for a wilder engine growl.
However, there are plenty of tuners that prefer removing the M Performance exhaust system in favour of the Akrapovic`s high-performance exhaust, which allows for increase power and quite astonishing engine soundtrack. The video below is trying to compare both exhaust systems that the model can be had with.
The M Performance Exhaust system adds a lot of noise and driving thrill to the gorgeous M2 Coupe and the aforementioned spicy prices wouldn’t be an issue for a real BMW lover.
There is no doubt that the M2 Coupe can be visibly improved by tuners, with different aftermarket parts and new mechanics. Is indeed the Akrapovic`s exhaust much better and more impressive than the M Performance exhaust? It is up to you to find out in the video below.
As a reminder, the 2016 BMW M2 Coupe is equipped with a 3.0-liter M TwinPower Turbo inline flat-six engine, churning out 370 horsepower and 465 Nm of torque. This is enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds with a DCT and 4.5 seconds with the manual.
