    458 Italia with Akropovic exhaust in 1080p

    Sounds cool, but not amazing:

    Akra exhausts aren't known about their loudness, it's the quality,
    Look at Akra Evo M3, i think factory exhaust sounds louder than it.

    It's not about how loud it is, this 458 just doesn't sound all that great.

    lol no, just no. I asked my friend just to listen to it then I showed him what car n video it was from, he would have never guessed it was a Ferrari. It looks nice a flush but does not sound attractive.

    The engine really needs to be under load to put it at full song. Revving at idle, is a completely different noise, IMO.

    imo none of akra's exhaust sound very good, wasnt a fan of the one on my M3, the one on the GT3 is prob there best but I think there are ones that sound better. They just are very high quality that nobody can argue and they are light!

    This is true. Still, that idle revving wasn't all that great.

    those engines under load sound like heavens gates, but free revving is poop. Thats how it is, it's not a mustang (they sound good always).
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
