Many people see Borla as the leader in performance-oriented stainless steel exhausts. They started off as an exhaust manufacturer for Ferrari and Rolls-Royce affirming their top-notch quality. Since then they have created exhausts for a range of other cars, becoming one of the most respected manufacturers in the business.
