  • Tim Shaw (Car S.O.S) Custom Built Audi S2 Quattro Cobra Sport Exhaust

    Tim Shaw from Car S.O.S was back at Cobra Sport HQ this week having recently visited to film for an episode of the popular National Geographic & Channel 4 TV show.

    Tim brought his 1992 Audi S2 Quattro in for a full custom built Stainless Steel Cobra Sport Performance Exhaust. The new exhaust system was built directly to the car using 2.5” pipework directly from the turbo back creating the pitch perfect exhaust sound for which Cobra Sport Exhausts are famous for. The new exhaust system was finished with a set of twin 3” staggered highly polished tailpipes to maintain the standard manufacture look of the classic S2.

    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 1.5 litre Mazda MX-5.

    The Cobra Sport exhausts for the 1.5 litre and 2.0 Mk4 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.

    Mazda MX-5 (ND) Centre Exit Performance Exhaust

    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. We launched our exhaust range for the 2.0 model Mk4 MX-5 during 2017 and have now applied the same attention to detail to the 1.5 Litre model. The unique ability to easily improve the looks and sound of the MX-5 with our Centre or 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 (manual gearbox only) 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.

  • Ollie Jackson and Sam Smelt confirmed for 2018 BTCC season

    The AmDTuning.com with Cobra Exhausts BTCC team can today confirm that Ollie Jackson and Sam Smelt will race the teams Audi S3s in the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season.

    The team heads into the new campaign seeking to build on the impressive progress made throughout last year, when it picked up it’s best points haul in the series to date. Tamworth-based Ollie returns for a third successive season with the team on the back of a strong 2017 that saw him start a race from pole, lead a race for the first time and finish inside the top ten in the Independents’ championship standings.

    He will seek to build on those results to regularly push towards the top ten, with the 33-year-old aiming to make the most of improvements being made to the Audi over the winter to try and push for a maiden podium finish. Ollie will also look to challenge for honours in the revised Jack Sears Trophy, which is now open to drivers who go into 2018 having yet to take to the overall podium.

    New team-mate Sam meanwhile will be making his debut in the series this season as he makes a return to tin-top competition for 2018. The 21-year-old from Northampton ended last year racing in the BTCC-supporting British F4 series, having earlier competed in the Volkswagen Racing Cup. Having graduated from karting twelve months ago, this season will be Sam’s second year in car racing, with the youngster looking to gain as much experience as possible to make progress up the highly-competitive grid.

    Work is currently ongoing to prepare the two Audis for pre-season testing, which is scheduled to get underway in February ahead of the opening meeting of the season.

    Ollie Jackson, #48 Audi S3, said:

     

    “I’m delighted to be returning with the team for a third season with the Audi and am really excited about what 2018 holds. We made a lot of progress last year but I don’t feel the job is finished yet, and I’d like to think that we can continue to build on everything we learned in 2017.

    “The testing programme we have in place means we can do some proper pre-season running, and will allow us to be fully prepared for the start of the season at Brands. We’ll be able to hit the ground running and can then focus on maximising our performance on track.

    “Having regularly challenged for points last year, the aim for me is to push for top ten finishes from the outset and I certainly feel that a podium could be possible if things fall our way. Independents’ class wins and the Jack Sears Trophy are certainly realistic, and I feel we have a good chance of coming away from 2018 with some silverware.”

    Sam Smelt, #23 Audi S3, said:

     

    “I really enjoyed the chance to sample the Audi when I tested back in November and came away from the day having ticked all the boxes I felt I needed to tick. Given how well it went with the team, I saw a good chance to make the move up the BTCC and am delighted that we’ve been able to agree a deal.

    “I’m really excited about the fact that I’m going to be competing in the series this season, but I’m also aware that the step up is a big one in my second year of car racing. I think this will be a learning year for me, particularly in the first half of the season, and I’ll have to take it race-by-race and see how I get on. I’m expecting it to be tough at the start, but I’d like to think that as the year goes on, I’ll be able to start pushing for points finishes and fighting my way further up the field.”

    Shaun Hollamby, team principal, said:

     

    “We’re pleased to confirm Ollie and Sam as our drivers for 2018, and are confident that both can enjoy a successful year on track. “In Ollie’s case, he has taken huge strides forwards since he rejoined us back in 2016, particularly last year which was arguably his strongest season in the BTCC. Our hope for 2018 is to see him regularly challenge towards the top ten and push for the Jack Sears Trophy title

    “Sam faces a steep learning curve as a rookie driver, but he did a solid job when he tested the car in tricky conditions back in November. He is a youngster with a lot of potential, and there is no reason why he can’t look to challenge for points as the season goes on.

  • Available Now - Audi S3 (8V) Sportback Performance Exhausts

    Audi S3 Sportback Performance ExhaustsThe Advancement of Audi’s S3 Sportback through Exhaust Technology

    Cars of the calibre of Audi’s S3 require more careful consideration prior to development of a performance enhancing exhaust system. Both Cobra Sport’s Technical and R&D teams were involved in the planning and preparation that went into the product testing and development of this new system to ensure that the correct balance was achieved between aesthetics and power to make the most of the S3’s 2.0 TFSi engine.

    The Cobra Sport system delivers significant power increases, but its glory has to be in the weight saving achieved. Swapping the Cat-back system results in a staggering 30% reduction in weight from the OE system’s 26.9kg, with the Cobra Sport alternative weighing in at 18.8kg on like for like components.

    You can be assured of only the highest quality materials being used in the production of all Cobra Sports exhaust systems with the highest quality grade 304 stainless steel used throughout the components and each exhaust being hand finished and individually TIG welded at our Sheffield factory. The levels of quality achieved enables us to offer a lifetime guarantee on all exhaust systems which provides the ultimate piece of mind for the customer.

    The Cobra Sport’s quad exit system benefits from angled 88.9mm tailpipes which can be finished in either matt black or original highly polished stainless steel. The end result of this attention to detail, is an ultra-lightweight system which complements the S3’s body styling and sporting pedigree while delivering enhanced performance and handling capabilities.

  • Available Now - Ford Focus ST 2.0 TDCi (MK3) 5 Door Estate

    Cobra Sport Ford Focus ST TDCi 5 DoorThe Ford Focus ST TDCi Estate (2015>) was always on the agenda to lend itself to a Cobra Sport exhaust upgrade, due to the massive success of the ST250 marques including the ST TDCi hatchback which received the Cobra Sport treatment soon after its release. The Cobra Sport development team have continued the trend of using 3” bore stainless steel pipework in their latest Focus ST exhaust in order to gain the best results with regards to both power and sound. The final ST TDCi estate development is available as a rear section replacement which enhanced the TDCI engine sound by a subtle 2 dB at three quarter revs, but has created a deeper overall tone. As expected there was an exceptional weight advantage, with the Cobra Sport exhaust being a massive 54% lighter than the original equipment exhaust thanks to the Venom system pipework which removed the need for a rear box.

    The new Focus ST TDCi Estate exhaust has two tailpipe design options, one being the custom designed twin 4.5" x 3" slash cut oval and the other the twin 4” inward rolled slash-cut tailpipe. Both tip designs are available in a highly polished T304 Stainless finish and the 4" inward rolled option in also available in ceramic coated matt black.

  • TRAX Show 2017 - Silverstone

    TRAX Logo 2016The TRAX show at Silverstone brings to a close a very busy 2017 show season for our events team who will now begin planning for an even bigger 2018. The TRAX event filled the British Grand Prix venue with turnout at record levels for the Fast Car entertainment event.

    The Cobra Sport stand occupied a large prominent space in the packed retail area where we had 4 display vehicles fitted with Cobra Sport exhaust systems. The Cobra Sport events trailer was the busiest it had been at all of the shows we have attended this summer and the amount of enthusiasm from the public was infectious. It's always great to get the chance to speak to our customers face to face to discuss our current range of direct fit exhaust systems along with the exciting developments we have planned for 2018.

    On the stand this year we had a stunning black Toyota GT86 fitted with the full Cobra Sport exhaust system including the recently released GT86 4-1 de-cat manifold. Alongside the GT86 we had an equally stunning Honda Civic Type R (FK2) with sports cat and non resonated cat back creating a stunning sound track to the trade area of the show. Completing the stand we had a pair of Ford Fiesta ST 180's fitted with turbo back exhaust systems with differing configurations providing a comparison between our popular Fiesta ST exhaust systems.

    Our clothing range again proved popular with our luxury hoodies becoming the sought after item in preparation for the imminent cooler autumn weather conditions.
