  • High performance carbon fiber drop-in replacement for the factory air filters; fits OEM Audi R8 V8 air boxes for improved airflow and performance.

Enjoy all the benefits of Fabspeed's world-renowned Supersport X-Pipe Exhaust System, now available with more power and sound at the push of a button!  Maximum gains of over 9whp and 12 ft/lbs of torque at 4,000 RPM with full V8 exhaust sound!                                              

We wanted to craft a sensational exhaust for a brilliant car. Our engineers set out to unleash the full unmuffled roar of the 4.2L V8 while being able to retain civility around town when desired.

VALVES CLOSED: Exhaust gases are channeled through Fabspeed's signature 63.5mm Quad-Resonated X-pipe. We engineered it specifically to smooth out exhaust pulses for a sophisticated, exotic, and distinctly European exhaust note while being as free flowing as possible. The tone is perfect for cruising around town or on long highway drives, with no droning at any RPM. 

VALVES OPEN: Exhaust gases are free to flow straight from the engine unmuffled through 70mm dump tubes with a snarling aggressive scream. The full fury of the 4.2L engine is unleashed, a thunderous and distinct V8 roar along with an intoxicating and menacing burble upon deceleration and bark when downshifting. In-cabin tone is fantastic with no drone, freely have a conversation as all heads on the block turn in your direction.       


We use Helical Valves for their unprecedented quality - which have been proven by many OEM manufacturers such as Porsche themselves, McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and many more.

  • Increased reliability - proven in racing and high volume OEM use 

  • High-temperature bearings at both ends of the butterfly spindle

  • Cast stainless steel valve body with stiffening ribs for ultimate durability


Valve Controller Installation Guide     


  • Fits Audi R8 V8 coupe and spider vehicle (2008-2013)

  • Fully controllable valved catback exhaust system includes a quad-resonated center x-pipe section which controls exhaust volume while the valves are closed.  When the valves are opened, the exhaust exits straight out through the dump pipes for maximum sound and power. Two unique sounds in one exhaust!

  • Also available in a Non-Valved Version at a lower price - Contact us for details!

  • Adds 9 whp and 12 ft/lbs of torque when the valves are open by channeling the flow of the exhaust gases directly out the back of the car with minimal restriction.

  • Saves 38lbs from the rear of the vehicle versus the factory rear muffler system.

  • Constructed from 14-16ga T304L stainless steel tubing for maximum power and durability

  • Direct bolt-on installation; no cutting or welding required (Included wireless valve controller may require minimal wire splicing.)

  • All Fabspeed performance products are backed by the Fabspeed Lifetime Warranty

    What A Ride Home!!

    Posted by Herb M. on 8th Oct 2015

    What a ride home!! How can you smile for 2-1/2 hours straight? Along with buying a new Fabspeed Valvetronic Exhaust for my 2009 Audi R8 V8, I'm now going to need plastic surgery to unfreeze my face. The sound of my car is absolutely AMAZING. My car is a 2009 and it drove like a 2016 model that I just picked up from the factory in Germany. Wow!! Where do I start? I traveled about 2-1/2 hours to get to Fabspeed and it was more than worth the trip. From the moment I arrived, everyone, and I mean everyone, took an interest in me and my car. Your staff couldn't have been more welcoming and I could immediately see that this was the Fabspeed culture. I knew that putting an exhaust on an R8 was a difficult job (something like 230 screws), so I wanted to have this work done by true professionals and your staff was fantastic. I stayed in a hotel down the street while the work was being done and to be honest, I couldn't sleep at all with anticipation of what the next day was going to bring. When I showed up at around 10 am, your technicians were almost complete with the installation. I left for some business meetings and when I came back around 3 pm my car was being dyno tested. That was a true thrill. The sound level rivaled a 747 taking off. WOW!! I love the new Fabspeed Valvetronic Exhaust for my R8. I love that when the valves are closed, it sounds great and gives the car a very "alive" sound. When it's opened (with the included key fob), the sound is absolutely beyond words. I truly have never heard anything like it before and all your techs said the same thing. They were all smiling. The coolest thing is that I actually met the fellow that handmade my exhaust system and he was just as happy as I was. I am totally thrilled about Fabspeed. I'm thrilled that I supported a quality American company that makes amazing products and more importantly, cares so much about their customers. Thank you Fabspeed for making me so HAPPY!!
