  • VXR: THE ULTIMATE GUIDE - CORSA VXR AND ASTRA GTC VXR COBRA SPORT CAT BACK SYSTEMS (SUMMER 2019)

    This Summer, Performance Vauxhall have released their 'Collector's Edition' VXR The Ultimate Guide. This special release magazine features some of the nation's most outrageous, powerful and rarest modified Vauxhall's packed into just under 100 pages.

    Cobra Sport's first mention in the magazine comes in the form of a product feature of our acclaimed 'Venom' cat back system for the Corsa E VXR in the 'Recommended Products: VXR Essentials' section.  The magazine noted the 'beautiful design' of the system, created through TIG-welding, and how it improves both gasflow and the sound of the Corsa's raucous 1.6 turbo-charged engine.

    "Celebrated performance exhaust manufacturer, Cobra Sport, has expanded its range of free-flowing stainless systems to include a powerful Venom kit for the Corsa E VXR. Replacing the OEM system with 3 inch mandrel-bent T304 pipework split into dual 2.5 inch arms at the rear, the company has utilised superior TIG-welding techniques at its Sheffield base to produce a beautifully-designed product improving gasflow and sound at the same time as releasing trapped ponies. As with other Corsa E exhausts in the Cobra Sport portfolio, this awesome Venom system is finished with a pair of 4 inch tailpipes and the option of black ceramic coating to complement the Corsa's standard diffuser. An additional eleven decibels provides a fantastic soundtrack to fast-road fun."

    The second mention of Cobra Sport in the tuning magazine is in an article focused on an insane Grasshopper Green Corsa D VXR Nurburgring Edition owned by Doug Booth. The unhinged 411bhp monster features a multitude of modifications, amongst which is full De-Cat Turbo-Back Cobra Sport performance exhaust system, which helps it achieve its ludicrous power figure.

    Our final mention came within the 'I Bought One' section of the magazine, featuring an Astra J GTC VXR which is equipped with our Non-Resonated Turbo-Back system and a rather eye-catching livery made-up of our Cobra Sport show car graphics.

    Performance Vauxhall magazine is available from many major retail outlets.

  • TRAX 2019 at Donington Park

    TRAX Logo 2016The second event of the July show weekend at Donington saw the first TRAX show of the year, held on the large and newly re-surfaced paddock area.

    Having announced a new technical partnership with the XtremeRX British Rallycross team earlier this year, we were pleased to be able to put the Citroen C2 Super 1600 class car pride of place in the centre of our stand at the show. The Rallycross car took part in the sound demonstrations showing off the aggressive and raw sound of the fully custom built TIG welded motorsport exhaust system normally only heard the rounds of the British Rallycross Championship.

    Alongside the Rallycross car we had a duo of demo cars. The first being a VW Golf GTi Mk7 fitted with our incredibly popular Cat Back Performance Exhaust upgrade finished with stylish Ceramic Coated 'Blackout' exhaust tailpipes.

    Our recently launched Cat Back Exhaust for the Mini Cooper S F56 was also on display on the stand taking part in the sound demonstrations before hitting the main Donington Park circuit to put the fully TIG welded exhaust through further track testing.

    The show weekend at Donington was a great success with a amazing range of vehicles on display on the extensive club stand and trade area. We now look forward to the Ford Fair show in August and to finish the show season, the main TRAX show at the Silverstone in October.

  • Japfest 2019 at Donington Park

    Japfest 2016 LogoWe added an extra weekend to our show calendar for 2019 attending the Japfest and TRAX shows at the expanding Donington Park racing circuit in Leicestershire. Housed on the newly resurfaced main paddock area, the venue was the perfect venue for the second Japfest show of the year with a mix of club stands, trade and on circuit action.

    Located in the busy trade area of the show, we were proud to show off 3 of our current best selling performance exhaust systems for the Japanese market.

    Central to the display was our ever popular cat back exhaust for the Nissan 370Z Nismo edition fitted with specially made Carbon Fibre tailpipes. The amazing sound of the Cobra Sport exhaust matched with the 3.7L V6 really drew the crowds during the sound demonstrations.

    Also receiving a great deal of attention on the stand was a Toyota GT86 fitted with a non resonated Cobra Sport cat back exhaust system. A popular initial upgrade for GT86 owners, the cat back exhaust offers a big improvement in sound offering a much deeper pitch perfect exhaust tone. Once the cat back is fitted, many owners look to take the sound and performance improvements further with our unequal length manifold and sports catalyst options.

    To complete the trio of demo cars we displayed the long term favourite and uniquely vinyl wrapped Honda Civic Type R fitted with non resonated cat back exhaust.

  • BANZAI MAGAZINE - NISSAN 350Z (AUGUST 2019)

    The August 2019 edition of the popular Japanese tuning magazine 'Banzai' featured our Nissan 350Z performance exhaust system as the exhaust of choice for those wanting to enhance the noise of their V6 sports car.

    Banzai praised the system for having a multitude of customisation options including resonated and non-resonated centre pipes and the option of carbon fibre tailpipes. They also noted that our system is manufactured using TIG-welding, giving it an advantage over rival systems that may only be MIG-welded.

    "This brand-new system for the 350 is all about giving you choices - loads and loads of 'em. Here you can choose from resonated or non-resonated centre pipes, a full-on high-flow Y-pipe, and even carbon tailpipes. So, there's a solution, no matter what sort of escapades you're planning. As you'd expect from Cobra too, these systems are constructed from proper, tig-welded T304 stainless steel, so they not only look the part, but should free up quite a few lovely horsepowers too. At the very least you'll be giving your Z car the voice it deserves - there's a lot to be said for that!"

    Banzai magazine can be found in many major retail outlets.
