A London native, Quicksilver was founded in 1973 at a time when the expected lifespan of an exhaust system barely reached 18 months. Quick to see a need for superior technology, Quicksilver jumped on the chance to produce the highest quality exhausts made from stainless steel that could seamlessly compete with the verve of any car.
Today, Quicksilver equips the world’s most deluxe cars with premium exhaust systems that are legendarily more efficient, and simultaneously both lighter and stronger. Quicksilver applies a personalized touch, manufacturing exhaust systems tailored for high-end, contemporary vehicles, as well as vintage sports classics.
Quicksilver has established an envied following with a list of iconic clients including such names as Missy Elliott, Rowan Atkinson, David Gilmour, Slash, Mark Knopfler, Nick Mason, and Sir Stirling Moss. Even Her Majesty the Queen Mother customized her Morris Minor Convertible with Quicksilver’s finest.
The cornerstone of revolutionary design and masterful manufacturing, Quicksilver has also pioneered unique exhaust features, like their Volcanic Black Ceramic Coat that reduces temperatures of over 110 °C, leading to dramatic drops of over 27.5 °C in under-hood heat and power hikes of up to 5.5%. This radical design was initially developed for nuclear and defense initiatives, proposes a proven track record of durability and stone chip protection, and delivers excellent performance gains.The addition of the acclaimed Ceramic Coat regularly used in top-level motor sport offers a unique shell coating that promises higher performance, decreased ambient and exterior temperatures, effective erosion protection with a tough shell barrier that intensifies a truly matchless look and polish.
Many Quicksilver systems for Mercedes-Benz vehicles (like a popular G63 system) are remote-valved which can be easily switched on or off using the key fobs supplied. In ‘ON’ position the vehicle remains relatively civilized allowing discretion when required. In ‘OFF’ position the system bypasses the silencer offering much more depth and crispness to enhance the driving experience whilst improving flow improving throttle response. The G63 system comes with unique QS Carbon Sleeved Tips, suitable for all standard models.
