1M Akrapovic Evolution Installed - Video Inside

Now that the wait is over and the Evolution system with Down Pipes and Wireless kit is installed on our 1M, we want to share a short video clip demonstrating the system with the opened and closed valve.

Once you open the valve by simply pressing a button, you get totally addicted to the new sound that you never heard before coming out from your little 1M don't be surprised ... it's not a gt3 rs, not a gallardo ... it's your 1M.

Start the car, press the button and go for the adrenaline rush that you've been missing ... once you've had enough of that, press the button again and enjoy a quite, drone-free ride home.

















Thank you,
Aleks.

we will post pictures later this week ... you can check installation guide to see how the wireless kit is being installed. We routed lines a bit different to have a better protection and cleaner look.

As always, it sounds so much better in person. The audio is from the crappy mic built into the camera. Next time we'll get audio from an external mic.

i've seen the MotoGP car at Laguna Seca and that car is a monster. Can't imagine what that sounds like on the street.
