Akrapovič Titanium Exhaust option is available for Bentley Continental GT Speed.

The Bentley Continental GT Speed now has a new Akrapovi titanium sports exhaust option for customers who want to increase the powertrain's volume. Among other enhancements, the new system offers weight-loss benefits.

Bentley Continental GT Speed engineers worked with Akrapovi to develop this new equipment. This system was first used on the brand's record-breaking Pikes Peak Continental GT, which is still the production car record holder.

According to the British manufacturer, "the new sports exhaust has been designed to intensify the deep and irresistible character of Bentley's iconic W12 engine," and that when Sport mode is selected, the new system produces "a rich, high frequency soundtrack and distinctive burbles on overrun."

A value is mounted on each back muffler managed by a special electronic control unit to control the sound and regulate the exhaust gas flow.

The exhaust design focuses on the highest strength, the lowest weight, the optimized flow and the highest possible thermal stability. Titanium with the complex components produced in the own in-house titanium foundry at Akrapovič was the complete exhaust.


The use of titanium and superalloys reduces the weight of the normal Bentley Continental GT Speed by 7.0 kg over the normal exhaust system.

Bentley states that a lower back pressure system, which improves the turbocharger performance, has been shown to improve the grip response by the new system.

The exhaust for sports varies visually from standard, with quad oval tailpipes and subtle Branding Bentley and Akrapovič with a matte titanium finish. The exterior is sandblasted and then covered to give a uniform finish with an increased resistance to scratching and durability.

The brand says that the new system improves the response of throttle.
