- 2011 - 2014 McLaren MP4-12C
AWE has merged over two decades in supercar performance products with rigorous study of the peerless engineering behind the McLaren MP4-12C to create one of the finest exhaust systems available, for one of the finest vehicles available.
The AWE McLaren MP4-12C Performance Exhaust is designed to perfectly smooth the aggressively raw tone that results from mating the AWE Performance Catalysts to the stock exhaust system. The resulting acoustic character is nothing short of breathtaking, offering a note that is both hard-hitting and exotic.
The exhaust is constructed from mandrel bent 304 stainless steel at 3” diameter throughout and features a small balance opening between the banks which produces the exotic, high pitched wail. The AWE Performance Exhaust features logo tips evoking the factory geometry in a discrete satin black finish, or an optional high profile bare stainless steel machined finish.
AWE McLaren MP4-12C Performance Catalysts
The AWE MP4-12C Performance Catalysts are aggressive, unbridled and unique.
Verified to fit both the 12C Coupe and the 12C Spider, the AWE MP4-12C Performance Catalysts are the first in the world to feature a200 cell hi-flow catalyst solution.
Due to its dimensions, standard 300 cell HJS catalysts would have been far easier to fit into the McLaren. However, there is no HD (High Durability) spec 300 cell HJS catalyst, and the close engine placement and power output that these catalysts are subject to in the MP4-12C, in our analysis, mandated better. The 200 cell HJS HD catalyst, while significantly more complex to integrate, afforded not only the durability we desired, but the added benefit of significant increased flow over a 300 cell count. In summary, we chose to not settle, because the MP4-12C deserves it.
AWE precision engineering and fixture development permits the factory heat shields to re-attach completely intact, with no deformation or subpar installation results. Further, our integration of proper articulating stainless steel fully lined flex joints provide proper torsional relief between the engine and the fixed muffler mounting points.
Besides factory correct fitment and long term durability, all this engineering adds up to an impressive +46hp and +61tq, as measured on the AWE in-house Mustang chassis dyno.

ABOUT AWE TUNING
IN THE BUSINESS OF PERFORMANCE
AWE has one vision: To Unlock Performance. From award-winning handcrafted performance exhausts to track-tested carbon fiber intakes and performance intercoolers, AWE innovates, designs, manufactures, retails and distributes AWE brand performance products globally through its preferred network of dealers, online and from its state-of-the-art headquarters outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Since 1991, AWE's elite team of researchers, engineers, innovators and drivers have track-tested and introduced premium performance upgrades for some of the finest automobiles in the world.
THE IN-HOUSE ADVANTAGE
A recent carbon fiber intake had over 350 in-house hours of development and testing behind it. Needless to say, our people are fanatically committed to the business of performance. By controlling every facet of development we are able to guarantee effectiveness and quality like no other.
Our laboratory is as much our CAD tools as it is our CNC machine as it is our official-tuner-status at New Jersey Motorsports Park. It’s all part of our DNA, from prototyping to manufacturing to testing. The bottom line, in-house means in control – and that’s where you want to be
Put simply, our company culture revolves around one vision: To Unlock Performance. You have it in there... it's just about unlocking it. With every CAD rendering and every test run, we ask ourselves, "Can this be better? Can we unlock more performance?" Whether we're choosing the next intercooler design or fabricating one of our signature 180 Technology® exhausts, we are fanatics and enthusiasts, committed to performance, all without ever sacrificing any of the practicality that you've come to rely on.
In other words, our mission is to become the most trusted partner in precision automotive engineering for enthusiasts like you.
