  • Vag Tuner Live 2017 - Donington Park

    Cobra Sport had a double presence at the VAG Tuner Live show at Donington Park occupying a large space in the paddock with the Cobra events trailer and also a pit garage giving easy access to the track for the AmDTuning with Cobra Exhausts BTCC car. With the unique open track nature of the VAG Tuner Live show and the timing of the BTCC summer break, we were able to run the Audi S3 British Touring car extensively around the track for our charity passenger rides showcasing the speed and sound created by the race car fitted with a hand built Cobra Sport exhaust system.

    On the Cobra Sport stand we had three display cars including the Mk7 VW Golf R fitted with a non resonated cat back sports exhaust system and the Cobra Sport Audi S3 Saloon with a resonated cat back stainless steel exhaust. The third display car fitted with full turbo back performance exhaust system with high flow sports catalyst was a stunning VW Polo GTI 1.4 TSI.

    Cobra Sport / AmDTuning Pit Garage - VAG Tuner LiveThe AmDTuning with Cobra Exhausts Audi S3 British Touring car was one of the main highlights of the show running on the track in amongst and quickly overtaking other high performance Audi, VW and Seat vehicles.

    Throughout the summer, we have been taking part in the Mistress Cutlers' Challenge raising money for the Sheffield Childrens Hospital and Cavendish Cancer Care. As part of the challenge, Cobra Sport MD Rachel Jarvis-Abbott took part in a sponsored passenger ride in the BTCC car with driver Ollie Jackson around the Donington Park circuit. The winner of our BTCC passenger ride competition (Mike) also experienced a number of high speed passenger laps around the Donington Park circuit.

    A huge thank you to everyone who supported the challenge, we hope you enjoy the on board footage!

  • Available Now - Multiple Makeovers for the 2.0 Mazda MX-5 (ND)

    Mazda MX-5 Dual Exit Cobra Sport ExhaustBuilding on an existing first class reputation in the Mazda MX-5 tuning market, Cobra Sport have applied their expertise to the latest MX-5 ND model. The Cobra Sport team have created a range of performance exhaust options to improve the looks, performance and sound of the 2 litre Mazda MX-5.

    The Cobra Sport exhausts for the MX-5 have been developed in a variety of configurations for those looking to upgrade the aesthetics of the Mazda MX-5. These options include a direct replacement exhaust with single tailpipe to one side along with dual and centre exit exhaust conversions. The new dual and centre exit exhaust systems have been designed to be fitted in conjunction with an aftermarket lower rear panel creating a re-designed sportier look to the rear of the car. All of the Cobra Sport exhausts have been developed using 2.5" (63.5mm) mandrel bent T304 stainless steel pipework, advanced manufacturing techniques and superior TIG welding procedures produce a superlative finish.

    Mazda MX-5 (ND) Centre Exit Performance ExhaustIndependent power testing of the non resonated dual exit exhaust with second de-cat pipe revealed an impressive +7.4 lb-ft gain in torque with greatly improved power and torque curves in the lower rev range.

    Cobra Sport Sales Manager Matt Thomas commented "We're very excited about the release of our new exhaust range for the latest Mazda MX-5 having had extensive success with the previous MX-5 models. The unique ability to easily improve the looks and sound of the MX-5 with our Centre and Dual Exit exhaust has generated considerable interest from our worldwide tuning partners. As with all Cobra Sport exhausts, the new systems have been designed to improve the sound with increased volume whilst still having a perfectly balanced pitch and tone”.

    The Cobra Sport cat back exhausts can be matched with a second de-cat front pipe to create the most dynamic sound track and enable an increase in engine performance. Matched with the second de-cat option which still allows the vehicle to pass the MOT emissions test, the non resonated dual exit cat back system produces a beautifully pitch perfect sound throughout the rev range. Through innovative exhaust design, interior cabin sound levels have been carefully managed with the above system registering a maximum of 88dB whilst under full load.
