When carmakers start doing wacky stuff with their exhausts, they all of a sudden become distinctive works of art. That's the sort of art we can get behind. Here are some of the best, according to you.
The Sesto Elemento ("Sixth Element" in English) is one of Lamborghini's coolest-looking cars ever, so you'd expect it to have a sweet exhaust setup. Instead of pointing directly to the rear, the twin pipes pop out of the top of the rear, positioned upward along the wing uprights.
The Viper's side-exit exhausts might not have been the best choice for keeping people in the cabin cool, but it certainly was the most stylish. Long tubes occupied each rocker panel, dispelling exhaust gases from that massive 8.0-liter V10.
The Apollo IE is one of the most outlandish-looking new supercars out right now, and its exhaust design is no exception. It has a triple-exit setup that looks unlike anything else on the road, almost like a flower at full bloom.
Lamborghini's ultra-limited edition Aventador-based supercar has some polarizing angles. There are sharp creases and hard lines everywhere, including the four-pipe exhaust, which comes together in a sort of 3D-cube edge shape between the massive diffuser.
The first Corvette's exhaust came through the body instead of hanging below. The 1950s were the decade of interesting design elements, so the Corvette's exhaust layout is just one artistic touch from that era.
Everything about this truck is awesome, lovable, and amazing. Especially the highly polished chrome stacks. They were 100 percent stock, so don't be fooled by trucks these days that have them: Those pipes are custom installed. The Lil' Red Express was the real deal.

Know why the SLR McLaren is outrageous for having exhaust pipes mounted that close to the engine? A short exhaust path like that means very little room for mufflers which means more sound which means maximum happiness. It's not located right under the door, so nobody will burn their calves on it. Plus, it's also an homage to the side pipes on the 300 SLR #722 .
If you know anything about cars, you know that the Zonda is one of the best-sounding cars out there. And that diabolical engine shriek comes straight from these stacked quad-pipes. It's even more beautiful when you for a look.
Arguably one of the greatest supercars ever made, the F40 had a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that made 478 hp. Combine that power with sheer lightness, and the F40 became . The sounds firing from the three-pipe exhaust were incredible—with the turbo wastegates dumping through the center pipe.
The Sagaris was definitely one of those cars that required a very skilled driver to keep on the straight and narrow. But that didn't stop people from going crazy for them. The clear spoiler and sideways exhausts were some excellent pieces of flair that let people know this wasn't .
Exhaust pipes that exit next to the tail lights? Absolutely, sign us up. Plus, the had 507 hp and grotesquely huge 355-section rear tires. If you make a car like that you can put the exhaust any damn place you want.
