Quiet or Loud - at the touch of a button.
Electronic Valves inc. Sound Architect™ Module - uses QS APP (Android and iOS)
Our Sound Architect App hands control of the valves back to the driver for the ultimate experience. When you select ‘Open’ they’ll stay open and when you select ‘Closed’ they’ll stay closed – this choice will be remembered even after the car’s been turned off and on.
The electronic module included only requires a 12v feed, usually a cigarette-lighter socket. It’s Bluetooth controlled on the driver’s smart device, and pairing takes just a minute.
The electronics are designed in-house and manufactured for us here in the UK, using local British factories.
• Significant weight reduction - OE system is 12.9 kgs QuickSilver is 8.9 kgs.
• The Sound - A massive improvement see below.
Appropriate sound - In Sept 2018 the new WLTP (World harmonised Light vehicles Test Procedure) was imposed as a result of the VW emissions cheating scandal.
The WLTP rules compel all car manufacturers to ensure that their vehicles comply rigidly with worldwide harmonised noise regulations. The practical result is that cars manufactured after this date are significantly quieter. And... the simultaneous imposition of particulate filters makes them quieter still.
For many citizens this is desirable, but for enthusiast drivers the sound is an important element of the experience and almost no one wants a silent Sports Car (even electric vehicles are being saddled with artificial soundtracks).
The QuickSilver 'Sound Architect exhaust for the Yaris GR should please all enthusiasts with it's bass-heavy presence and rising note under acceleration - With nice turbo wheezes, even Tommi Mäkinen would be satisfied.
