All exhaust systems are produced using modern CAD technology from specially alloyed titanium whos exclusive right of use in Germany belongs only to LIGHTWEIGHT.
It is natural that the whole equipment park is on state-of-the-art technological level. The titanium as noble material is characterized by high resistance to corrosion, unusual durability and small weight and therefore concerning the price is noticeably above quotations of stainless steel.

For more performance is LW front spoiler blade responsible optionally available from visible carbon ore PE, stepless adjustable carbon rear wing, and a trump ace -the LW exhaust system inclusive. Valve control (available also in stainless steel) as well as brake system with 4 piston saddles and endless brake pads on the serial discs at front and rear axle. By the way, a genial wheel and tyre combination from the RI-D rims of BBS in 9×19 Inches with Michelin PilotSportCup2 in 265/35-19 (VA), respectively in 10×19 Inches with 285/35-19 (HA), is combined with Bilstein Clubsport chassis. The engine of the bolide delivers super strong 520 hp (= 375 kW) und 650 Nm of maximum torque tug at the crankshaft.
