The Options


W205 C450 AMG Touring Edition Exhaust

A bespoke exhaust designed specifically for the W205 C450 AMG, the Touring Edition Exhaust features AWE Tuning’s proprietary drone-cancelling solution, 180 Technology, enabling the perfect tone, minus drone -- delivering the ultimate mix of performance and sophistication. A direct bolt-on, straight-through design, the Touring Edition Exhaust delivers a civil, smooth soundtrack throughout the range while providing an enhanced in-cabin driving experience.

Sound Perfection: AWE Tuning 180 Technology

As exhaust gases exit the W205 C450 AMG engine and flow into an AWE Tuning 180 Technology equipped resonator, they pass through strategically located ports, and into reflection chambers. Sound waves, carried by these exhaust gasses, bounce off the walls of the reflection chambers. By controlling the size and location of the ports and the chambers, we also control when the sound waves exit the chambers. The specific timing of when the reflected sound waves rejoin the main exhaust flow creates a one-hundred-and-eighty-degree out-of-phase sound wave that cancels out problematic frequencies.

It’s sophisticated and disobedient, all in one clean package, thanks to 180 Technology.

W205 C450 AMG Track Edition Exhaust

If you’re all about 100% rowdy 100% of the time, the Track Edition is for you. It’s known to get raucous in the mid-range and could be a little much for many, and for that reason, this system can’t be returned due to sound: so be ready.

The AWE Tuning W205 C450 AMG Track Edition Exhaust takes the engineered design of the Touring Edition Exhaust and replaces the rear AWE Tuning 180 Technology resonators with Track Edition straight pipe sections, delivering an even bigger dose of scream out of the suave sedan.

It’s too loud! (It’s too quiet)
