  • FAST CAR MAGAZINE CORSA E VXR VENOM 'BEST EXHAUST' (FEBRUARY 2020)

    The February 2020 edition of Fast Car magazine features Cobra Sport's Vauxhall Corsa E VXR Venom system being awarded 'Best Exhaust' in the 2019 'Fast Car Product Awards'.

    The simplified pipework of the Venom system which removes the usual rear box has been designed to create an unrivalled deep sporty sound which will set the Corsa E VXR ahead of the crowd. Sound testing of the finished Venom cat back exhaust system recorded an impressive 89.8dB (+11dB) on the sound meter during the 4000rpm circuit test with a sound track which becomes highly aggressive under load.

    In Fast Car's own words: "This new Venom stainless steel exhaust from Cobra is absolutely chuffing bonkers, and what with the E-shape VXR being one of THE hot hatches of the moment, we reckon these will simply fly out of the door."

    Fast Car magazine is available monthly from many major retail outlets.

  • MANUFACTURING AND ENGINEERING MAGAZINE - COMPANY FOCUS (JANUARY 2020)

    The January 2020 edition of MEM (Manufacturing and Engineering Magazine) featured a write-up of the Cobra Sport brand amongst other businesses that have been awarded the coveted 'Made in Sheffield' mark. It also covered some of the manufacturing techniques that we use including TIG-welding and CNC mandrel tube bending.

    "Cobra Sport Exhausts was set up by brother and sister Pete Jarvis and Rachel Abbott in 2004 to continue the long family history in the trade.  Over the past 15 years, the duo have driven the business forward to become one of the UK’s leading performance exhaust manufacturers. With a global network of dealers, high-profile motorsport sponsorships, the team’s recent success in the British Touring Car Championship and a focus on new product development, the Cobra Sport brand has never been so strong.

    "When it comes to the manufacturing process, all performance exhaust systems are not the same. Aside from the differences in design and the type of materials used, one of the biggest factors that affects the quality of a performance exhaust is the welding. This is one area in which Cobra Sport is ahead of the game. Whereas many of our competitors use MIG-welding, our highly skilled technicians utilise superior TIG-welding techniques.

    It also has an article covering the Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire (Sheffield), of which our Managing Director, Rachel Abbott, is the Chairman of the Freeman's Committee

  • Fast Car Magazine - Mini F56 LCI (Summer 2019)

    The summer edition of Fast Car magazine includes a feature in the fresh kit section featuring the new Cobra Sport F56 LCI Mini GPF-Back performance exhausts.

    "If you're bang into your BMW MINs, you'll know that last year new government regulations forced them to fit an all-new GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter) for emissions. There is some good news though (and even more on the horizon), because Cobra Sport have been rapid in developing a new 3-inch exhaust to slot perfectly on the back of GPF-equipped models for optimum flow, without tripping that pesky engine light".

    Cobra Sport spent weeks perfecting the sound of this TIG welded T304 stainless steel exhaust, making the sound not only sporty and aggressive, but without the risk of any motorway drone. Cat back and downpipes for the F56 LCI are on the horizon once tuning companies begin to offer tuning software for the ECU.
