    Anyone Know Which Exhaust This Is?

    http://youtu.be/4p35F2Ple2M

    I would assume its an AC Schnitzer one as per the title, but when I went on their website it doesnt seem that they sell any exhausts?

    To me this exhaust sounds AMAZING!!!!!

    Can't be absolutely sure, but by the tips it looks like the now discontinued Hamann system.

    Assuming the tips are mated with the cans, not changed, would be hamann.

    Anyone know how I could get my hands on one of these, and how much it would cost?

    No, they've been out of production a long time, the best sound you can get today is with these - you want the 'Z8 Forum edition' which is what the link is to.

    Was the Hamann exhaust a whole system, i.e. headers, cats, etc. rather than just the mufflers like the Meisterschaft?

    thanks in advance if anyone remembers...

    I did get my Hamann headers about a year and a half ago so they were still tooled up then. The exhaust tips look the same as my Supersprint but who can tell from that pic.

    I think that Supersprint is the manufacturer of the Hamann exhaust kits if I remember correctly, they just add a Hamann badge.

    I did not know that! No wonder mine sounds like the other hamann exhausts on some of the videos. Good to know.

    Question Hey JoshB...

    can you post a video with sound regarding your Supersprint Exhaust in case someone else might want to upgrade if they like the sound? Curious how it compares to the others / Eisenmann Race or Z8 Miesterschaft?

    Ok will try once I get to my computer. The only video I have is racing against a lambo and corvette some one else took so not exactly clean. I will say it sounds a bit like American muscle when opened up with a little burble on deceleration.

    Sounds like the Eisenmann Race !

    That is exactly the way I would describe the Eisenmann Race. Pretty quiet when at highway speeds with NO drone but fantastic when opened up and love the burble on deceleration. Years ago when considering the Exhaust, the Supersprint was available then but no audio or video for the sound on a Z8 but Eisenmann had audio /video for the Z8, chose the Z8 so I knew pretty much what I was getting. The Supersprint appears to be a bit less expensive than the Eisenmann so if folks could hear some audio/video for comparison, it definitely will be useful. Anything you can post would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance ! Looking forward to hearing it when you have a chance.

    So you see me getting chewed by a lambo Gallardo super trofeo. He has a least 100 horse on me and is about 300 lbs lighter. At least he gave me a jump so you can hear my exhaust. The flag girl for that run was nothing to look at so I will include our other flag girl heather

    what was the question? Can't seem to think. !!! Thanks for the pic of the addtional eye candy !

    Did you have your DSC traction control on? Looked like like the throttle dumped a bit even though you did get the jump on him at the start.

    Thanks again !!

    Traction control definently off. I learned that lesson well the first time I went to this event. The throttle would bog something terrible to prevent wheel slippage. My guess is that the electronics from a design now about 14 years old are not as sophisticated as todays launch controls. I also kept the AC off and did not power shift as the rev limiter would kick in any way. I did find that I was neck and neck with a 2012 M6 coupe. What's the HP on that? A little over 500?
    If you like the eye candy I will post a video that Rob (heathers videographer boyfriend)made later today. Not only did he make a sophisticated video of the day of drags where Heather is doing the flagging honors, But you get to see some truly awesome machinery go down the runway. An Aventador , some Maclerans , a few 1000 HP GTRs and a Shelby aero coupe that did briefly take top speed honors away from Buggatti among others.

    I had the new M6 before my Z8 and the M6 felt Waaaayyyyy faster! Granted your Z8 has mods and mine is completely stock. The new M6 makes 560HP as stated by BMW, but the twin turbo engines in the new M5/6 are seriously underrated. Motortrend got 650HP from a stock M5 on a Dyno. If you look at other forums there are tons of members making over 600 HP on stock cars which eliminates the idea that Motor Trends particular car was just tuned by BMW to perform better (which is something Ferrari has recently been accused of).
