Driving an R8 is like having the best of both worlds. You've got instant curb appeal and performance to rival Ferrari and Lamborghini, but driving comfort that can only be compared to a luxury sedan. As an alternative to the R8 V10 non-valved
muffler, Tubi also offers a valved exhaust system, which compliments Audi's "best of both worlds" philosophy by producing an aggressive note under acceleration, but a more civil tone during stop and go driving. It does so by the use of vacuum-actuated flaps that open and close depending on driving conditions and input from the driver. When open, the valves allow gasses to escape through a second outlet from the muffler which facilitates a much larger volume of exhaust to freely pass through the muffler. This not only provides a much more aggressive sound, but also contributes to a noticeable increase in overall performance. However, even when the valves are closed, Tubi's muffler does a much better job of allowing the real character of the V10 to be heard. It's louder, but not over the top, in both circumstances.
As with any Tubi Style exhaust, the R8 V10 system is made from the highest greade T304 stainless steel, polished to a beautiful mirror finish. It bolts directly to factory mounting points, and also features adjustable outlet pipes to guarantee a perfect fit in the rear bumper.
**PLEASE NOTE: If you are unsure of which generation to choose, please contact one of our sales representatives for more information. A visual clue is the shape of the rear exhaust outlets. First generation R8 V10 models have oval shaped outlets, whereas second generation R8 V10 models have round outlets.**
