Milltek Gears Up for SEMA 2018
Respected UK exhaust manufacturer Milltek Sport has an impressive array of new, British-made products to showcase at the SEMA show in 2018. The company will be exhibiting in the south upper hall, booth #30271.
As one of Europe’s most respected tuning and motorsport exhaust brands, Milltek naturally has an affinity for the latest performance releases from the other side of the Atlantic. Being the first exhaust manufacturer in the UK to add cars like the FK8 Honda Civic Type R, Volkswagen UP GTi and Audi 8V RS3 saloon to its R&D fleet means that Milltek has unrivalled experience in creating exhaust solutions for these oft-tuned platforms.
Everything Milltek makes is designed and manufactured at its UK facilities, based in the heart of Britain’s ‘Motorsport Valley in the Midlands. Every system is hand-finished and precision-fabricated to surpass the very toughest OEM and EU legislation standards. Materials like titanium and carbon fibre are all now part of the range – with a stunning array of tip options and finishes to choose from.
Motorsport is a huge part of Milltek’s development process and makes up a significant part of what the brand stands for. Supplier to 13 British Touring Car Championship cars, technical partner to Toyota Motorsport Germany, and the official technical partner and sponsor to the Volkswagen Racing Cup. Milltek’s paddock credentials are as impressive as its engineering reach.
Technology is the ever-moving yardstick that the company seeks to push onwards on a daily basis, leading to innovations like the ValveSonic switchable valve technology, Hollowtek extraction technology to save weight and improve tone – and latest of all, Milltek’s new ‘Active Sound’ modules that allow all manner of personalisation options. These are particularly relevant to the burgeoning performance TDi, hybrid and electric vehicle options now on the market.
Milltek has built its reputation over the many decades of its existence by creating superbly engineered systems that fit perfectly, sound incredible and extract real power from the recipient engine. By balancing a diverse motorsport programme with extensive road and dyno development the Milltek range offers everything for the enthusiast, whether that’s refined power gains with a subtle tonal difference, or an out-and-out track-spec system that truly offers aural transformation with peerless tuning potential. In the case of all road systems, much care and attention is taken on the matter of cabin resonance. Even louder system options are carefully configured to ensure that they never induce unwanted frequencies or ‘drone’ into the cabin. These are truly driver-focussed products.
Milltek’s range covers a huge range of tuner cars, from Alfa Romeo, Honda, Ford through to Volkswagen and Audi – with just about everything notable in-between. With resonated, non-resonated and emissions-friendly FIA approved HJS race cats available, there’s something to give you power, style and tone – wherever and however you want to drive.
Exciting developments are also in the pipeline with Zircotec’s thermal exhaust coatings to be added to Milltek Sport product range. Something that should herald new possibilities for heat management and the reduction of under bonnet temperatures.
Commenting on the firm’s 2018 attendance, managing director Steve Pound said. “SEMA is a hugely important show for us – and underlines our commitment to the all-important US market. Not only does it allow us to spend time with our dealers and distributors, but the show also gives us an invaluable opportunity to speak to the end-users and enthusiasts to find out what they really want to see in our American product range. Please do come and join us.”
