APR Tuned RS3 Runs Deeper into the 9's with a New Record
APR has raised the bar once again, resulting in a new record for the 2.5 TFSI EVO platform. An exciting 9.722 second quarter mile elapsed time was achieved at Montgomery Raceway Park on July 16th, 2018 and backed up with five 9.7 second passes. Many may recall this is the same vehicle that was the first RS3 into the 9's, owned by Keith Brantley. Results were achieved using a new hybrid turbocharger and various upcoming APR hardware modifications on an unopened stock engine long-block and transmission, in a density altitude of roughly 3,000 FT.
Keith's vehicle setup and modifications were as follows:
2018 Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI APR ECU / TCU Upgrade (Ethanol) EC/SRM Drop-in Stock-Housing Turbo APR MPI Injectors with EC/SRM LPFP APR Carbon Fiber Intake with APR Cast Inlet APR Intercooler APR Cast Race DP with Downturns APR Subframe Insert APR Lowering Springs Forgeline Wheels with Hoosier DR2 Tires Seats / Trunk Tools Removed and LW Battery
Overall the outing was a success. Keith's RS3 clenched a new personal best, and the new overall record for the platform. However, we're not done yet! After pouring over the data, we've found several ways to improve the record by helping the vehicle transfer more of the new found power and torque to the track. Stay tuned for future updates!
Keith's RS3 will be on display at Waterfest at Atco, NJ this weekend, July 21st and 22nd. Come visit and see the vehicle in person!

Euro Spec MK8 GTI and MK4 S3 at APR USA!| 01/18/2021
Our new European Spec VW GTI (MK8) and Audi S3 (8Y/MK4) Hatchback are here! We imported both of these from Germany and shipped them on over for development. We've spent the past few months working with APR Deutschland / Stoll Automotive to begin development on both vehicles, including fitting many of our existing parts. Some fit, some will fit, some required modification, and some are a total ground up project, but we're deep into it already. Stay tuned for this exciting new platform! We're really excited to see where we can take the new 2.0T EA888 Gen 4 engines! And if you haven't already, catch our live review of the cars here: http://goapr.io/mk8live
