  • Ford Fair 2017 - Silverstone

    Ford Fair LogoAs one of the biggest shows of the summer, Ford Fair 2017 again proved to be a fantastic day out for Ford owners and enthusiasts. Taking over an extra large plot in the trade area we had a group of high performance Ford vehicles on the stand all fitted with Cobra Sport performance exhaust systems.

    Drawing the crowds and creating a buzz on the stand was our tuning partner AET Motorsport's Voodoo Fiesta ST180. Fitted with a Cobra De-Cat + Cobra Fiesta ST Venom exhaust and matched with an AET re-map, the Voodoo car sounds stunning! Also drawing the crowds were a stunning nitrous blue Mk3 Ford Focus RS promoting the valved Cobra Sport Venom exhaust system which proved incredibly popular with RS owners.

    Completing the line up on the Cobra Sport stand we had a Fiesta ST 180 fitted with our 2.5" non resonated cat back exhaust along with a stealth grey Focus ST 250 with 3" Venom cat back performance exhaust.

    The Cobra Sport merchandise range again proved popular on the day with many owners of Cobra Sport Exhausts visiting the trailer to purchase hoodies, t-shirts and caps. We also had stocks of our newly launched range of vinyl vehicle graphics which include side stripes, large Cobra heads and sun strips which are available in three styles.

  • Available Now - Mk3 Audi TTS Quattro Redefined

    Audi TTS Mk3 Cobra Sport ExhaustIn line with Cobra Sport’s objective to continually expand their range of performance stainless steel exhausts, the most recent vehicle to pass through the development programme is the Mk3 Audi TTS 2.0 TFSi Quattro. The new systems build on the success of the previous Mk2 TTS exhausts and have been developed in a number of configurations to appeal to a wide range of buyer requirements.

    The new Cobra Sport systems for the Mk3 TTS offer the best of both worlds producing a deeper exhaust tone than standard which becomes highly aggressive when under full load whilst maintaining a sophisticated improvement in tonality for everyday use

    The Cobra Sport development team have produced both valved and non valved systems for the Mk3 Audi TTS. The valued systems are designed with the valve housing welded directly into the exhaust system allowing the use of the OE motors through the direct electrical connection. All systems are available with the active exhaust valves removed creating a more intense, constant sound and power upgrade.

    Audi TTS Mk3 Resonated Non-Valved Cat Back ExhaustThe Cobra Sport team were able to reduce the weight of the exhaust by an impressive 39% over the OEM system with the resonated 3” non resonated cat back system weighing in at only 10.95kg compared to the original 17.95kg. The de-cat front pipe benefits from a 20% weight saving over standard weighing just 7.57kg.

    Cobra Sport’s Sales Manager, Matt Thomas, explains “The sound we have managed to achieve from the Mk3 TTS is in line with the marque’s core values creating an unobtrusive and classy drive. The pitch perfect sound changes when under load increasing in volume and becoming more engaging with sound testing of the resonated cat back exhaust revealing a + 4dB increase on the 4,000 rpm test and + 9dB increase over the standard exhaust at idle. Those who require a more dynamic and aggressive exhaust tone can opt for the non-resonated turbo back system, which, with a de-cat, provides an all-round more involved and sportier upgrade whilst also opening up the opportunities for power gains for our tuning partners”.

    Cobra Sport brings two decades of innovative design and unparalleled manufacturing expertise and are willing to back up their promises on quality, with a lifetime guarantee for customers who purchase the exhaust upgrade. Usual refinements that match the aspirations of the most demanding driver include, hand finishing using advanced TIG welding techniques and all Grade 304 stainless pipework being formed expertly on CNC Mandrel bending machines, which ensures the smoothest of gas flow, with precision jig manufacturing to ensure a perfect fit.

  • Double points in the BTCC at Snetterton

    AmDTuning with Cobra Exhausts - BTCC SnettertonThe AmDTuning.com with Cobra Exhausts team secured a brace of points finishes from what proved to be a challenging weekend as the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship burst back into life at Snetterton. The team headed to Norfolk buoyed by a strong showing at Croft prior to the summer break and with confidence high of fighting for more top 15 finishes.

    Fresh from three points finish in North Yorkshire, Tamworth-based Ollie Jackson qualified 17th on the grid at the wheel of his Audi S3 and looked well set to score again as he quickly fought his way into the points in the opening race. However, Ollie would then find himself on the receiving end of contact on multiple occasions as the Audi was roughed back to the lower fringes of the top 20; with the 33-year-old left to wonder what might have been as he brought his damaged car to the finish in 18th place. Ollie picked up points in race two with a solid run to 14th spot but any hope of pushing further towards the top ten were ended on the opening lap of race three when he was taken off at Oggies by an out-of-control rival.

    Ollie Jackson - BTCC Snetterton“There is no doubt that we had a car that was capable of the top ten this weekend and it’s only because of stupid driving from other people that we’ve not been able to get some really good points,” he said. “The car was better than it was at Croft and I think that was reflected by the improved performance in qualifying, even if we should have been higher on the grid than we were.

    Team-mate Ant Whorton-Eales was also keen to push for points at the longest circuit on the calendar and qualified in a fine 15th place for the opening race of the weekend. Like Ollie, the reigning Clio Cup UK champion found himself in the heart of the action in the opening race of the weekend – with contact on more than one occasion meaning he ultimately finished the race down in 20th spot. Having finished race two in 21st, the team made a series of changes to Ant’s Audi ahead of the final race of the weekend and the Lichfield racer took full advantage with a strong drive that saw him battle his way up to eleventh place; matching his best result in the series to date.

    Ant Whorton-Eales - BTCC Snetterton“Before the final race we made a lot of changes to the car and it was a lot better. We took a real step in the right direction and the changes really improved the car so I could fight forwards into the points. The pleasing thing was discovering afterwards that we’d been racing door-to-door with guys who were on the soft tyre, which should have been quicker, and we proved to be more than a match for them.

    “Although we could have scored more than the single points finish, it’s been a good weekend and I hope we can build on the progress we’re making and continue to challenge for points.”

    Team boss Shaun Hollamby admitted it had been a weekend where both drivers deserved more than the results they had picked up from the three races.

    “Both drivers have driven well this weekend, certainly better than the results on paper show, and there is nothing that they could have done to avoid being caught up in other peoples incidents,” he said. “There’s a lot of hard work that has gone into the cars and we have to just keep plugging away at it and not let what has happened here get us down.

    “We have to keep pushing to progress up the grid so we avoid getting mixed up in the trouble that keeps occurring, so that is what we’ll focus on as we look towards Knockhill.”

    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.

  • 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.
