APR MK7 Golf R Acceleration

By: APR | 03/23/2015 < Back to Blog Home

Dyno testing is a great way to gauge power increases over the entire rev range but may not translate to real world performance. Through GPS based acceleration testing, APR's Engineers were able to verify increases made on the dyno translated to a faster and quicker vehicle on the street.

The results were astounding. By simply adding the APR Stage I ECU upgrade, the US spec 2015 Golf R DSG test vehicle completed every test quicker than the stock vehicle by a large margin. 0-60 MPH times were reduced to 3.8 seconds while the 30-130 MPH test was completed 5.9 seconds faster! Acceleration tests were conducted all the way to 140 MPH, which was reached 9.1 seconds faster with APR Stage I Software.

Data collected at the same location with a US Spec 2015 Volkswagen Golf R DSG with OEM tires via a Racelogic P-Box's actual data files (not screen data) with ESP disabled, race mode, sport mode, and automatic redline shifts. Results will vary depending upon location, environmental conditions, vehicle, transmission, shift points, vehicle health, operating conditions, temperatures, fuel grade, weight, tires, other modifications and more. (1-FT) indicates 1 foot roll out timing.
