Continuing on from our 2004-2008 Gallardo thread, we also have some diverse options For the LP550, LP560 and LP570.

VelocityAP designed a modular system whereby the center portion of the exhaust will fit up to a 2008 Audi R8 V8, right up to a 2017 Huracan. The LP Gallardos also fall within this spread. All 3 center sections are dimensionally identical in terms of mounting points and end points, so by interchanging the tip sections, can be fit to any one of these cars.

Our 'Race' setup is for those who want minimalism. Loudest sound, highest pitch and lowest weight:

Just breaking this up so it doesn't get too long in one post. Our next system is the Supersport. This is your 'Goldilocks Porridge' setup - louder but not too crazy. This is comparable in sound level to resonated XPipe setups. The muffler we use is actually constructed with an internal XPipe, so looks inside just like the Race System, only with a very small amount of perforated tube just to round out the sound a little bit and take the edge off: Lamborghini LP550, LP560, LP570 Stainless Steel Exhaust 'Sport' Sound Level

Finally, we offer a Valvetronic option, which is your double stack!

The 'Race' Xpipe system, with our 'Touring' muffler stacked on top. The Touring muffler features the same internal construction as the 'Supersport' but has he maximum amount of perforation & silencing in addition to the internal XPipe. This system sounds just like the Race when the valves are open, and is pretty close to stock sound levels when closed:

And finally, some numbers. We take our exhaust development pretty seriously. Our philosophy dictates that functionality and minimalism come first, so that we don't end up adding a bunch of unnecessary things which just increase cost without making a better, stronger or better sounding product.

Included in that is how to pick the low hanging performance fruit and get you the most bang for your buck. A part of that analysis often includes flow bench testing. As my friend who flows heads for a living likes to say: "Air does some weird s**t. And it doesn't always do what you think it will.

So for these 3 systems, we built a plenum to hook them up to the flowbench and analyze the results.

Some interesting data came through. The OEM exhausts are actually pretty well set up in terms of flow rate when the valves are open, but lose almost 50% flow when the valves are closed. Flow data only tells part of the picture, it doesn't give you data on low RPM or mid-range torque, or acoustical properties but it does give you a picture of your maximum flow rates.

How our exhausts stacked up versus OEM:

Race vs. OEM 'Open': +8.62%

Supersport vs. OEM 'Open': +1.03%

Valved 'Open' vs. OEM 'Open': +2.24%

Valved 'Closed' vs. OEM 'Closed': +26.10%

So the conclusion is that all our exhausts have higher flow rates than the OEM systems, with the biggest gains being the 'Race' system as expected, and Closed vs. Closed.



Now interestingly, we had a customer who wanted us to alter the design of the Valvetronic system, believing two things:

1. That the 'Y' between the two air flows was compromising 'Open' flow.
2. That the XPipe was also compromising flow.

We built a custom system, which featured a 'T' connection to the muffler inlets, and had 2 x U-Pipes rather than the XPipe. The results are shown on the Flow Bench chart as the 'Test' system.

As you can see, not only was 'Closed' Flow lower, but 'Open' flow was decreased as well! Interesting results.

very good price point for all your exhaust options.

For your valvetronic exhaust, does it come with a remote control to manually switch the valves off and on?

Thanks very much. We have tried to create a line of products that produces really good sound, is strongly constructed but that doesn't have unnecessary extras. Great quality at a reasonable price point. No Supercar Tax!

Our systems will work with factory valve controls, including those cars equipped with manual valve control (like the Huracan.)

We also have valve controllers with remote control, available for $250. very simple installation, only requires a ground, and a key-on (preferably fused) 12V power source.

Been shipping quite a few R8 & Huracan Variants recently, but this LP560 Beauty left the VelocityAP factory today enroute to our dealers EurodesignMK in Massachussets.

Many in stock, drop us a line if you like the lightest, loudest, highest pitched LP550, LP560 or LP570 in your neighbourhood!
