The iconic CAPRISTO Valved Exhaust System offers the best of both worlds through its capability to produce an aggressive exhaust note under acceleration, and a more subdued sound for city driving.  This feature is possible using vacuum-actuated valve flaps that open and close depending on driving conditions and input from the driver. At lower engine speeds and during cruise operation the valves are closed and produce a deeper exhaust note. At wide-open throttle, the valves open releasing the full symphony of the engine. The exhaust valves are backpressure-controlled and user programmable via the included CES-3 Control Module. The programmable control unit provides 3 modes operated via a remote key fob: Cruise Exhaust valves open at higher RPMs Sport Exhaust valves open at lower RPMs and hard acceleration Open Exhaust Valves Remain Open Both the Cruise and Sport mode can be individually programmed for specific backpressure allowances to determine when the exhaust valves open. This allows precise control of the exhaust based on the drivers personal tastes and tolerance. CAPRISTO Exhaust systems are engineered and manufactured utilizing advanced 3D Laser-Scanning, CAD Design, Digital prototyping, and CNC-bending/milling at our factory in Germany.? Each system is made of high-grade T309 (1.4828) Stainless Steel and hand polished to a mirror finish.? After extensive research, this specific alloy was chosen for its sonic resonance properties, low weight, and durability which are close to the properties of Inconel (used in F1). IMPORTANT *The exhaust system is designed to be installed directly into existing OEM mounting points*

CAPRISTO began in 1990 as a manufacturer of exhaust systems for Ferraris and have since evolved into the premier manufacturer of today’s high performance exhaust systems for both exotic street cars and racing models. CAPRISTO is committed to providing world-class exhaust and carbon fiber products which surpass the expectations of its customers. Our factory in Germany is complete with a state-of-the art testing and development center where CAPRISTO is continually improving our manufacturing efficiency and standards to levels beyond OEM quality. CAPRISTO has pioneered a variety of improvements in the design of performance exhaust systems. Antonio Capristo, founder and CEO of CAPRISTO Exhausts, currently holds several International patents for innovative exhaust technologies. Every CAPRISTO exhaust is made from T309 stainless steel (close to Inconel – used in F1 Racing) and designed for extreme temperature applications (>600*C), employing mandrel-bent tubing, and hand-welded construction with the utmost care and professionalism. The performance and sound advantages of CAPRISTO exhausts are globally exalted by sports car and exotic owners. CAPRISTO is at the forefront of performance automotive development, complete with our full line of patented and track proven products that enhance the sound and visual impact of sports cars while adding dyno-verified power and torque. Our US distribution (based in Florida) stocks over 80% of the 500+ item catalogue, and offers free shipping on all in-stock products.  Our wide dealer network in North America offers top flight service and installation matching the quality of the CAPRISTO product.  Special order items are typically a max 10-14 day turnaround with quick shipping from our factory in Germany.   Engineering Every Capristo component starts with the creation of a complete 3D rendering of the vehicle utilizing our state-of-the-art 3D laser scanners.  Creating this multi-dimensional image of the car is the most important baseline to ensure perfect OEM level fitment of the exhaust or carbon fiber pieces. The rendering generated serves as the starting basis for the product prototype development within our CAD computer software. Once the scan is complete the data is prepared, digitally cleaned and exported for further processing using our proprietary CAD-Software.  Every file is then cross checked against physical measurements to ensure accuracy. The digital process starts the beginning of the prototype manufacturing. Utilizing engine specifications, sonic resonance values, and dimensional restrictions, Capristo designs multiple prototype concepts for physical evaluation.  The unique “Capristo sound” the brand is known for is achieved through the constant application of this bespoke formula applied to the specific data matrices of the specific car’s attributes. Once the digital design processes are finalized multiple system prototypes are produced. Each of these designs are then test-fitted and checked for performance and sound superiority.  Only once the perfect balance of these two goals is found is the result achieved and ready for the next step. Upon completion of prototyping and testing, the system is now ready for serial production and will be manufactured based on the specific precise guidelines. Billet Steel Jigs are created in-house to ensure 100% accuracy and consistency of each system that is produced.  Similar to engine production at AMG or Ferrari, one welder is assigned to each production model who will then carry out the production from start to finish.  After CNC-bending and CNC-milling of the base T309 (1.4828) stainless steel the exhaust is ready for welding.  All Capristo Automotive products integrate this state-of-the-art technology to guarantee the highest standard of quality. After the product is completed, the system is hand-polished to a mirror finish and ready for installation on your vehicle.  Only with Capristo are you ensured of 100% German, beyond OEM-level design and construction of your performance modifications.  Accept no Substitute.  Capristo.
