Aston Martin is easily defined as the “ultimate driver’s car” for its power and for the Vantage, its appealing, ultra-luxury styling. Yet you will not realize the full potential of the Vantage engine if you are still using its stock exhaust. The handmade CAPRISTO Valve exhaust package releases the performance compromised by the OEM exhaust, delivering an improvement of approx. 15hp.
The CAPRISTO system includes the mufflers ONLY, and is only designed to suit both, the Aston Martin Vantage V8 and V12 (Not the DBS or DB9).
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. 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.
Alternatively, you could fit the optional programmable remote kit for the exhaust valves, which would provide the ability to open and close the valves at a touch of a button.
***RARE: There are small number of cars that were NOT equipped with OEM Exhaust Valves, if that is the case, the CES-3 Remote Kit will be required to control the Capristo valves***
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).
The exhaust system is designed to be installed directly into existing OEM mounting points.
