    I talked to Antonio from Capristo the owner of Capristo last night, he called me to tell me about this new system that was just completed. The unit pictured is designed for the Mercielago.What is interesting about the system is it uses a valving that makes it docile (well as docile as these fabulous systems can be at cruise) once you put your foot on the throttle it says it’s a Capristo, its aggressive & demands attention! Looks like another winner for this product line. I cant speak for the factory at this time, but I would logically assume that the Gallardo would be next in development & then possibly going back to the Diablo systems, that seems to be the pattern of development that I have noticed with the company. I will ask him and find out for sure & let the Lamborghini community know. Regards. Nick Scianna

    Murcielago is the cars name too, I wasnt sure if the exhaust was supposed to have the wrong spelling as a marketing thingy or something............... =)

    When I saw the photo, the first thing I said to myself was "WTF?...."

    Pretty avant-garde tips, that's for sure.

    Capristo's quality is way better and the sound as well compared to a tubi.

    I think that the photos dont do the look any justice. Need better pictures and perhaps post the sound.

    How much is the system?

    Just so everyone knows, I really love the sound of Capristo exhausts.

    But, I've been staring at this new tip and, well, ideas have been jumping out at me. I do like how the tip set fills that lower area, but the shape does lend itself to Muppet imagery.

    The best exuast i've heard by far is the Kriesieg, and you can switch the modes from inside the car
